Spearhead spans three campaigns and focuses on the airborne invasion of Normandy
, the Battle of the Ardennes Forest
in Belgium and the Battle of Berlin
Mission 1: D-Day
In the first mission, Barnes takes part in Operation Neptune where American airborne forces are dropping behind enemy lines in Normandy. During the jump Barnes is separated from his squad, but soon afterward links up with a British commando unit.
Barnes helps the commandos in destroying a train carrying 88mm artillery pieces and anti-aircraft guns as well as eliminate a high ranking German officer in the process.
Mission 2: The Bulge
After the Normandy invasion, Barnes returns to the 101st where he is deployed to the Ardennes forest to help hold the line.
With food and ammunition running short, Barnes leads a squad of paratroopers through the foggy forest and breaks in a German supply depot, where they steal two supply trucks and make it back to friendly lines safely.
Though later that night, enemy artillery fires on the paratroops and German tanks and soldiers attempt to overrun the American line. Barnes and the troops beat back the attack, and finally, on Christmas Day, the American forces launch an offensive and successfully push the Germans out of Bastogne.
Mission 3: Berlin
In the final mission, Barnes is sent to Berlin as part of a covert op with the Red Army. As the downfall of the Third Reich is near, Barnes is sent to capture important documents in the city's Chancellory. He retrieves the documents and soon after finds a T-34 tank. The tank crew, under the command of Barnes, fights their way back to friendly lines, where they find that the Soviets are under heavy fire from German tanks.
After holding out against German counterattack, Soviet bomber planes come to their aid, eliminating the remaining tanks and troops and ending the Battle.
