Icy Retreat(Days of Ruin) or Escape on Ice(Dark Conflict) is the 15th mission of Advance Wars: Days of Ruin. This mission introduces CO units, CO Zones, and the CO power meter along with the Snow weather condition.
The Lazurian troops are in despair over the death of Forsythe and that Greyfield has ordered the execution of the remaining Lazurian soldiers. Brenner will not accept this and decides to help them escape. Greyfield and the rest of the New Rubinelle Army notice and order Brenner to attack the Lazurians, an order that Brenner refuses. Greyfield then states that what Brenner has done is treason and that everyone in the 12th Battalion is now marked for death.
The goal of this map is to get any of the 2 Lazurian units (infantry or recon) to the other side. One of them can be destroyed, but if both are destroyed, you fail the mission.
Brenner's Medium Tank cannot be controlled by the player, making it a sort-of temporary wall until it gets destroyed, but the other red units can be used in order to help Gage's troops escape the map. Do not bother trying to protect the medium tank.
Protect the 2 units at all cost, so take out the units on the west with caution. You need to destroy one of the meteors to proceed forward. Do not overly go against the units on the east, especially with the War Tanks. Do not worry about the medium tank either.
