A large number of the enemies on this map, including the boss, are fliers, so a bow user or even two is recommended. Most of the other enemies are Dark Mages, who are physically fragile, so any good physical attacker can mop them up- a sword user is recommended for what ensues later. You may also consider leaving one of your units behind at the allied base as a last line of defense.

First, a Dark Mage Ruffian will attack the North Hall. Your physical attacker should either wait for them at the fort, or head them off early. Shortly after the attack begins, a pair of Dark Mages will spawn on the map- one in the upper left corner, one in the middle of the south end -and launch a lightning attack on your allied base. Obviously, you don't need this going on while you're already pressed to defend, so take them out quickly; your physical attacker who just defeated the first Ruffian should be free to take out the northwest caster. The second Ruffian is the Pegasus Knight, who will attack the Central Hall. Your bow-user should be able to stop them easily, and also be prepared for the third and final Ruffian, a Wyvern Rider from the southwest targeting the allied base itself. She has to cut through the Central Hall to reach it, so your bow-user doesn't even have to budge from their spot to take out both Ruffians.

Losing all three Ruffians will apparently annoy the enemy immensely, as they'll immediately send three whole squadrons upon your base simultaneously, consisting of the same three enemy types. Your physical attacker should net their third Dark Mage kill of the day and, if they're a sword user, intercept the Wyvern Rider as well, while your bow user hunts down the Pegasus Knight and the second lightning caster if you haven't already dealt with him. As Camilla opens her base up, a Curate up in the northwest corner of the map will encounter trouble; you don't need to defend him or anything, just reach him before the enemy kills him. All you get for it is a Warrior Tonic, however. More pressingly, a Fortifier Captain will appear right outside of the enemy base and, oddly, head toward the Hidden Fort instead. If you don't eliminate him the base will strengthen, but since it's far-removed from the battlefield it's only a concern if you intend to take all the bases. You should also encounter Cordelia and Elise in your travels, who are somewhat more threatening than the regular Pegasus Knights and Dark Mages but should go down easily to your offensive units.

Once you've finished your business, your bow-user should be able to take down Camilla easily.
