"The Eagle's Nest was the last bastion of the German High Command. From this mountaintop retreat, the Germans would launch a final counter attack if the war were to turn against them."

— In-game briefing

"High on a mountain in the tiny town of Obersalzberg, Austria, stands the Eagle's Nest. This gift to Hitler on his 50th birthday looks like a pleasant mountain retreat, but some believe it to be the rumoured National Redoubt to which the Führer and his top brass could escape should Berlin fall to the Allies. Germany's High Command is now believed to be continuing the war from a hidden fortress in the Alps, so the Allies are targeting the Eagle's Nest for investigation - and infiltration."

"The Eagle's Nest was the last bastion of the German High Command. From this mountain top retreat, the Germans would launch a final counter attack[sic] if the war were to turn against them. Your team will win if your opponent's tickets reach zero. The U.S. can reduce the German tickets by destroying a safe containing military secrets and a heavily fortified door that leads to a loading bay. The Germans can reduce the U.S. tickets gradually by defending and maintaing [sic]the objectives."

"The war all but won, The German High Command's mountaintop retreat was a the final target for the Allied forces. Despite sure defeat, the Axis defended their last bastion with a fierce courage that cost the lives of many advancing soldiers. The superior might of the Allied war machine was too much though, and the mountain was eventually scaled and the Eagle's Nest captured."

— American Victory

"The war all but won, The German High Command's mountaintop retreat was meant to be a final, symbolic target for the Allied forces. Perhaps their last stand, the Axis defended the mountaintop with a ferocity unexpected by the Allies, who were forced to retreat after suffering severe casualties on the winding road to the Eagle's Nest. The German's last stand would be another battle."

— American Defeat

"The Axis waited atop the mountain for the Allied attack, and when it came they showered the advancing forces with bullets and artillery fire. The narrow mountain roads were like bottlenecks to the Allied troops. After the battle, roads were strewn with the bodies of those that were slaughtered by the dedicated German defenders."

— German Victory

"The Axis needed to defend Eagle's Nest at all costs, and the elite troops surely paid the ultimate price. Despite a valiant effort, the Germans could not stop the inexorable Allied advance. With the capture of the Eagle's Nest, the war for Europe is all but over."
