About Playing Advance Operations
In advance operations the battle map is a portion of the entire operational map, and slides forward (or backward) between battles. The attacker wins by reaching the end of the operational map before the time limit is over (this may take several battles) As soon as the attacker reaches the end of the map the game automatically ends, and the victory level of the attacker is determined by how quickly he achieved his goal. If the operation ends before the attacker reaches the end of the map, the victory level for the DEFENDER will depend on how far the attacker came. Units which end the last battle in no mans land are automatically shifted back to their own front lines.
To help you assess the terrain and keep track of the action this scenario has a topographical map associated with it. You can download it here.
