Dead End is the third Allied mission in Red Alert 1

Background[edit | edit source]

The Allied forces along the front were holding, though barely. Allied armored divisions were fighting guerrilla warfare. Though they were still out-manned and outgunned, their superior tactics and mobility were holding the Soviet might at bay for the time being.  In order to counter this annoyance, several more Soviet armored divisions were ordered to help secure the front.  Allied High Command foresaw this move and knew that it could easily spell doom.  A concentrated attack could easily dismantle the Allied forces.  However, there were several key bridges within the area that held strategic value.  Without the bridges, the Soviets would have to detour their forces, buying the Allies several hours to prepare and also sending the Soviet armor to less favorable terrain.

Aftermath[edit | edit source]

With the bridges down, the Soviet armored divisions were forced to find another route.  The forces at the front were temporarily stranded, giving the thinned Allied forces time to regroup.
