We have detected Allied activity on Elba island. The Allies plan to use this island to stage an attack on the Soviet Empire. You must ensure that the island ceases to be under Allied control.

Destroy all Allied units on and around the island. The local population has been aiding the Allies as well. There is only one punishment for helping the enemy - Death.
- Mission briefing

Investigate Elba island is the ninth Soviet mission in Red Alert 1.[1]

Background[edit | edit source]

Just in time for Stalin's birthday, the Soviets had captured Berlin. Stalin and Nadia's "private" briefing was soon interrupted by Field Marshal Gradenko, who informed Stalin of the Allies' new weapon - the Chronosphere. Soviet spies have confirmed the Allies were field testing the weapon on Elba Island off the coast of Italy. Seeing how formidable the Chronosphere would be in conjunction with the Soviets' Iron Curtain project, Stalin sent the commander, now a captain, to investigate Elba island.

Aftermath[edit | edit source]

The Soviet commander was successful in destroying the Allies' Chronosphere though it later turned out that the Allies have at least two more prototypes in Europe. Meanwhile the Soviets' own Iron Curtain project is in jeopardy...
