Close-Up 1: The North View
The Alpine are special troops capable to handle battles in mountain ranges. Supported with horses carrying armament and a encompanging self-propelled gun, brings them forward to the approaching British forces.

The complete Aplini did not take a stand yet as not expected yet to encounter enemy troops with skis still tied.
Close-Up 4: Dare Devils
The front line consists of Welbikes; not scared of aything and speeding foward.

Support troops on their way to the front whilst a German signals to a lower section about their situation.
