Around the city of Eindhoven, there are buildings being set ablaze by German stukas. During this autumn-like time of year, especially before Christmas, people began to think that the war in Europe would finally come to an end because of what the Allies had done on D-Day back in June. On a night like this, there should have been peace and quiet. Instead there is the screaming of a female Dutch civilian who got shot by a German officer outside of a hospital. Meanwhile, off somewhere in central Eindhoven, paratroopers of the 101st Airborne Division are looking for a missing soldier.
Corrion: Where is he?! Has anyone seen him?
Courtland: I can't see a damn thing in this smoke. My eyes are burning!
Corrion: Keep looking!
Back in the hospital, Staff Sergeant Matthew Baker climbs a set of stairs and approaches a wounded soldier on top.
Soldier: Sorry, Sarge ...
Baker: Don't be sorry. You did good.
Soldier: Did she ... did she get out okay?
Baker: Yeah. Yeah, she's fine.
Behind Baker on another set of stairs, a German soldier creeps down the stairs and points his MP40 at Baker.
Shots are fired, but not from the German soldier. From behind the German soldier. Out of the darkness, Hartsock opens up with his Thompson submachine gun and instantly kills the German soldier.
Hartsock looks at Baker and Baker gives a thankful nod. Baker now looks at the wounded soldier, and the wounded soldier dies. Hartsock, now at where Baker is, puts his hand on Baker's left shoulder. Baker takes off the dog tags of the wounded soldier. Just when Baker began to close the wounded soldier's eyes, the top caves in from a German dive bomber. Baker and Hartsock run down the stairs while the wounded soldier is engulfed in the rubble surrounded by flames. Baker looks back at the wounded soldier one last time and begins to feel a sinking feeling in his stomach. He looks up to Hartsock and walks backward and goes down on his knees.
Hartsock: He's gone ... Matt ... he's gone.
Hartsock puts his hand in front of Baker.
Hartsock: We have to go. Look at me!
Baker grabs Hartsock's hand, and Hartsock lifts Baker to his feet.
Hartsock: Let's move, Matt. Follow me.
Baker follows Hartsock, under some rubble.
Hartsock: Just go under it! We gotta move!
All of a sudden, bomb shells start raining hell outside the hospital.
Hartsock: Shit! Watch out!
Hartsock and Baker dash to the far side of the hospital and walk into another room.
Hartsock: Shit! There's more Krauts. Get down!
Baker and Hartsock take shelter behind a turned over bed frame. A German soldier is standing in front of a massive hole in the ground.
Hartsock: Shoot 'em, Matt! Shoot 'em now!
Baker shoots the German soldier and he falls into the hole.
After the two take out a few more German's along there way through the hospital the lights go out.
Hartsock: There goes the lights...the whole city...god Matt, all those people...
Then they move into the final room of the hospital. A cutscene appears and Baker runs into the middle of the room. He hears planes above and looks through the above glass window. A bomb drops knocking him to the ground. Two Germans walk up to his body rifles pointed at him. Matt raises his pistol unsteadily and helpless as a third one walks up to his body, points the rifle at his head, and fires.
Hartsock looks at the scene horrifyingly scared to death. The logo to the game then appears.
