My god, it's a massacre! The losses we're taking...
- Andrew Campbell

Hide And Seek is the seventh mission in R.U.S.E.


After securing the rear areas, news from the front are bad. The amphibious landing under Gen. Wetherby is rapidly going from bad to worse, and allied losses are mounting. Rather than sit back, Sheridan decides to seize the initiative and improvise without waiting for orders. Using a small force, he decides to go in for the kill and knock out the Italian Guarda Nazionale, while also securing a staging area for the attack on the Barbara Line.
