|“||As the mushroom cloud above Cascade Falls slowly dissipated behind us, we fought on in a blasted wasteland with trees singed black the wave of searing heat. But at least we were alive. Bannon and the men in his company were not. Their sacrifice had been the key to stopping the Russians and now Fort Teller was safe. We had to destroy the town in order to save it, but back then I think the irony of that was lost upon us. The EMP from the nuclear blast had effectively silenced the radios, and what was left of our battalion was scattered over the surrounding countryside. We lost contact with the Colonel early on. It soon became every man for himself as we tried to get reorganized and fight off Russian stragglers at the same time. The blast had been more powerful than anyone could've imagined. We thought the worst thing could possibly have happened, just had. Little did we know what was to come...||”|

Aftermath is the eleventh mission of World in Conflict.
In the aftermath of the nuclear explosion at Cascade Falls both U.S. and Soviet units have scattered all over the surrounding countryside. In this blasted wasteland you must rally your forces and establish contact with the command elements of the battalion.
The events of the mission encapsulate the co-operation and military response of Parker and Webb's battered battalion force, following the unprecedented detonation of a tactical nuke at the battle of Cascade Falls. The mission begins with the rendezvous of Parker with Webb at a riverbank. Parker is tasked to keep all his units alive and provide the necessary repair support to ensure the survival of Webb's forces.
The first portion of the mission involves Parker repairing a variety of abandoned American and Soviet ground vehicles (heavy tanks, repair tanks, troop transport and heavy artillery) that the pair consequently operate, reinforcing their battalions. Colonel Sawyer eventually comes on-line and directs Parker and Webb to retreat to forest on the opposite side of the river. However, as the forces approach the river, they encounter a large scale Soviet force, which presumably survived the nuclear explosion.
Parker and Webb retreat to safety, where their presence is compromised by a pair of scout helicopters. After eliminating the squads of hostile tanks on the riverbank, the battalions advance to the river where a counter-attack between the Soviet forces and the US units is staged. During the battle, squads of Soviet flanking forces appear, and Parker is directed to wipe them out, using tactical aid or his ground forces, as soon as possible. As the conflict intensifies, the colonel grants Parker a number of additional strikes under his arsenal of tactical aid. The remaining Soviet forces are eventually neutralised, and the mission ends.
