The Grey Castle is the third and final mission of the Causeway campaign in Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor.

Mission Description[]

Able, Baker and the rest of the 82nd Airborne have been pushed from Cauquigny with little time remaining to secure their objectives. The Germans have bunkered down, their machine guns trained on the Causeway road.


When it is daytime, Germans had fortified the La Fiere bridge and trying to halt the assault. Sergeant Craft says the 4th Infantry Division needs the road open. During the first charge, the squads that charges are wiped out by howitzers and MG42s. However, during second charge, the squad members are left behind and Sergeant Craft charges along with others.(Latter we know he is the only one who managed to cross the La Fiere bridge.)

After managing to cross the bridge, Craft takes out the personnel who tried to hold off Allied advance and rest elements of Able and Baker squad link up with Craft. After this, the squads start to take out the anti-tank guns and howitzers while 6th Armored Group and 4th Infantry Division pushes along with remaining 82nd Airborne Division. After completing their objectives, Craft decides to avenge for Wilson. Able and Baker Squads then assault the Grey Castle and take out the personnel inside the castle, including the Panzer IV that took out Wilson's life during second mission.

Later in cutscene, Sergeant Craft is killed in action during the defense of Maas River bridge but successfully halt the German assault.
