      \\-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-//
    
                                                                                INT2
    
    
    In Commandos 2, you can unlock Bonus Missions by finding all pieces of 
    the Bonus Puzzle in the level. These pieces are hidden in Bonus Books, 
    and those are hidden in furniture, chests, and cabinets throughout the 
    level. These Bonus Books will disappear when clicked, at which point
    a new piece of the photopuzzle will appear.
    
    However, finding all the Bonus Books can be hard at times. Sometime you 
    still need one or two pieces, even though you've checked the whole level. 
    When this happens, you can either spend a lot of time searching through
    all containers in the level, or you can simply read this FAQ. 
    
    How do you use it? Play Commandos 2, and take a look at the Bonus Book 
    Screen. Remember which pieces are still missing. Now, open this FAQ, and 
    go to the chapter for the mission you're stuck in. At the start of each 
    chapter, I'll give an ASCII representation of the Bonus Puzzle. Find what 
    pieces you're missing, and then look at the description with the 
    corresponding number. 
    
    
    Good luck,

        this house, there's a room with 3 beds. There are also two tall lockers 
        in this room. The Book is in one of the two lockers.
    2 > The same room and building as #1, but this Book is in the other of the 
        two lockers.
    3 > In the Mess Hall, where the general's assistant is drinking with 5 other 
        soldiers. It's in the cupboard in the corner (not the one next to the 
        chest, the other corner).
    4 > This one's in the room where Natasha starts. Look in the big locker on 
        the wall opposite of the door.
    5 > Opposite of the Mess Hall (see #3), there's a small building with 
        showers inside. The last piece of the puzzle is in a locker in this 
        building, next to the door.

     1 > Inside the Submarine that you're supposed to steal. Go to the center of 
         the Submarine to find some sort of kitchen, with a lot of cupboards on 
         the walls. This Bonus Book is in one of the cupboards.
     2 > Inside the Submarine Pen. Standing on the Submarine you have to steal, 
         walk off the plank, back onto solid ground, and then turn left. Enter 
         the building here (it's the same building where the Captain is being 
         held captive). On the ground floor of this building, search the file 
         cabinet near the door to find this Book.
     3 > This one's in the same building as #2. Go to the second floor, where 
         the Captain's cell is. Search the two lockers in the corner near the 
         stairs to find the Book.
     4 > Remember that, in the previous mission, Natasha could phone the 
         general? Well, go to the building with the phone (it's near the 
         general's office). There are three rooms in this building: one anteroom, 
         the room with the phone, and a room with some beds and a lot of 
         enemies. The Book is in this last room, in the locker next to the door 
         behind the Officer. If you want to get it without being seen, enter the 
         building through the door behind the Officer. By the way, how nice of 
         those Germans to replace those Bonus Books overnight =)
     5 > This one's in the room where Natasha started in the previous mission, 
         near the missiles you have to destroy. Check the big cupboard in this 
         room to find the Bonus Book (same location as #4 in Mission 1).
     6 > Enter the general's office (with the safe you had to crack in the 
         previous mission). In the anteroom (the little room before the actual 
         office), there's a  file cabinet in the corner. Check this cabinet to 
         find the next Book.
     7 > This one's also in the general's office. Enter the actual office this 
         time, and search the shelves next to the desk.
     8 > Opposite of the Mess Hall (where the assistant was drinking in the 
         previous mission), there's a small building with some showers inside. 
         The Book's in a locker in this building, next to the door.
     9 > There are two gates to the enemy complex. Go to the gate with the train 
         tracks (near the fuel tanks). Facing this gate from inside the complex, 
         there are two doors, one on either side of the gate. Enter the left 
         door (you have to walk over a catwalk first), it leads to a small room 
         with two enemies and a switch to open the gate. The Book is in a desk 
         in this room.
    10 > North from the train station, you'll see an anti-aircraft gun on a 
         wooden platform. Just north of that, in the complex wall, there's a 
         bunker. Enter this bunker, and look for an officer and a lieutenant in 
         a small office. This Book is hidden in the desk in this office.
    11 > Enter the Submarine you're supposed to steal, and make your way to the 
         rear end. In the small room at the rear, you'll see a cupboard. It 
         contains the last piece of the Bonus Books.

    1 > This one's in the room where you start, in the Submarine. Look in the 
        cupboard in this room to find it.
    2 > In the center of the Submarine, you'll find some sort of kitchen, with 
        a lot of cupboards on both sides. This Book is in one of them.
    3 > There are two buildings north of the Submarine. One is where the Green 
        Baret is being kept, the other one holds the radio. Enter the building 
        with the radio, and search the cupboard near the door to find the next 
        Bonus Book.
    4 > Enter the big ship, and make your way to the front (if you take the 
        plane as the north end of the level, go west). In the last room, past 
        the crew quarters where the Captain is being held, you'll find 4 
        lockers. The Book is in one of them.
    5 > This one's in the crew quarters of the ship, where the Captain is held 
        captive. Enter the room two doors away from the Captain's cell, and 
        search the cupboard to find the next piece.
    6 > When you're on the bridge (where they're holding the Enigma Machine), 
        enter the door that leads down to the room below. Go down the stairs. 
        There's another set of stairs leading down, a door leading outside, and 
        a narrow office on the other side of the room. Enter this narrow office. 
        There's a desk with some equipment, but you should look for a really 
        small, brown cupboard on the wall to the right (seen from the door). 
        The Book is in this cupboard.

    1 > From your starting position, head to the bridge. Cross the narrow 
        bridge, and the immediately turn left, and pass the stairs on the 
        right. Walk on the path between the water and the yellow building, then 
        go around the corner and enter this yellow building. Search the cupboard 
        in the room with the two officers to find the Book.
    2 > There are three bridges over the river: a narrow one, and two big ones. 
        Get onto the big bridge in the southeast corner of the map (the one that 
        isn't near the escape boat). On this bridge, walk towards the square. 
        Just before you pass through the gate with the green roof, enter the 
        door on the left. Two guards are cleaning their guns here. Check the 
        gun racks to find this piece of the Bonus Mission.
    3 > Not far away from the escape boat, you'll see a garden with several 
        monks walking in it. Enter the building across the road from this 
        garden. When you're in, enter the room on the right, and search the 
        cupboard.
    4 > Near the big statue, and also near the two watch towers at the end of 
        the bridge, you'll see a big building in the center of the square. There 
        are two snipers on the balcony. Anyway, enter this building, and stay on 
        the ground floor. There's a room with two guards, some radio equipment, 
        and an officer that is constantly pacing around. Enter this room, and 
        check one of the cupboards.
    5 > From the starting point, follow the river, staying on this side. After 
        passing the narrow bridge, keep going. When you come near the big 
        bridge, you'll see some stairs leading into the water. On the other side 
        of the river, big stairs are leading out of the water. Cross the river 
        here, and enter the big building across the road from those broad stairs 
        (the building with a guard on the roof). On the second floor, you'll see 
        a room with a bunch of shelves. The Book is on one of those shelves.
    6 > Go to the same building as #2 (the one on the side of the southwestern 
        bridge). Enter it, and then climb a ladder to reach a room with some 
        bookshelves. The Book is on one of these shelves.
    7 > Go to the radio building. On the ground floor, check the cupboard to 
        find the Bonus Book.
    8 > Across the entrance to the statue is another building. Go through the 
        entrance (it doesn't have a door as entrance, just a hole). There are 
        four rooms here, two of them have bookshelves in them. Check one of the 
        two bookshelves for this piece.
    9 > In the same building as #8, but this one's on the other bookshelf.

    1 > On the bridge are two spots you can search (at the barrels). The Bonus 
        Books is hidden between one set of barrels.
    2 > Go to the prisoner camp, across the river. There are 4 buildings between 
        the fences. Go into the one furthest away from the bridge. Here, you'll 
        find some shelves. Search them to find the second Bonus Book.
    3 > Go to the prisoner camp across the river. Enter the biggest one of the 
        four buildings between the fences. Inside, search the cupboard (it's 
        the same cupboard in which you'll find the bomb).
    4 > Cross the bridge, and turn right. Walk past the building, then turn 
        right, and walk down the sloped path. At the bottom of path is a small 
        house. Inside are an officer and a normal soldier. Once you've cleared 
        this one room building, look for a really small cabinet on the wall. I 
        mean REALLY small, the size of a Commando's head. Once you've found it, 
        search it for the Bonus Book.
    5 > To complete the goal, you have to show Guinness the model of the bridge. 
        Go to the room with the model. Next to the model is a small cupboard,

     1 > If you check your goals, you'll see that you have to get some 
         explosives. Use the directions given in the Objective menu to find 
         the bunker where the explosives are kept. Enter it, and search the 
         cupboard nearest to the entrance to find the Bonus Book.
     2 > In the camp nearest to your starting position (the one on the side with 
         the guns), there are several houses, and a bunker. Facing the bunker, 
         turn 90 degrees to the right, and walk to the wooden platform up ahead. 
         Enter the small hut on this platform. After taking care of the officer 
         inside, search the cupboard.
     3 > In the southern village (the one above the guns), face the narrow bridge 
         across the river. To your right will be a wooden platform with two 
         buildings, a big one and a really small hut. The big one has a sniper 
         on the second floor. Enter this building, and look in the only cupboard 
         in this hut.
     4 > This one's in the southern village, that's the village above the bunker 
         with the guns. There's a white bunker with a steel door in this village. 
         Facing the door, turn 120 degrees to your left. You'll see a pretty big, 
         T-shaped hut. Enter it, and search the shelves in the corner for the 
         next Book.
     5 > When you finally get to the guns you have to destroy, you'll see a 
         couple of cupboards near those guns, in the same room. This Bonus Book 
         is in one of the cupboards.
     6 > Like #5, this one's in one of the cupboards in the room with the guns.
     7 > Standing at the three guns you have to destroy in the bunker, enter the 
         only door in this room. Walk down this corridor, and take the first door 
         left to enter a room filled with soldiers in white clothes. There's also 
         one cupboard in this room, the Book is in it.
     8 > One of the clues you'll get in this mission is to steal the keys to 
         the bunker. Select this clue to find out where the keys are, then make 
         your way to that room. It's a big room, with a lot of radio's, a table 
         with a map, and the Admiral who has the keys. There are also a lot of 
         cupboards and closets here, search them all to find pieces #8, #9 and 
         #10.
     9 > This one's also in the room with the Admiral who has the keys. See #8 
         for more details. Search all cupboards and cabinets to get them all.
    10 > Again, in the room with the Admiral (see #8).

     1 > On one of the shelves in the warehouse where the Lupin and Inferno start.
     2 > Like #1, on one of the shelves in the warehouse.
     3 > In the southwest corner of the map is a stationary truck. Enter the 
         second floor of the house with the green roof near that truck. Go to 
         the kitchen, and look in the stove to find the Bonus Book.
     4 > Go to the white building where Natasha start. On the ground floor of 
         this building, look in the cupboard for a Book.
     5 > In the village, stand on the square in front of the gate to the enemy 
         base. Face the gate, then turn 90 degrees to your left, and enter the 
         door in front of you. Search the shelves with the clothes for another 
         Bonus Book.
     6 > Leave the white building where Natasha starts via the front door, and 
         turn left (seen from your Commando). Walk down the street. After passing 
         the house with the green roof and the balcony, enter the door on the 
         left, into a stone-colored building (it's on the same block as 
         Natasha's house). Get to the top floor of this house. In the bedroom, 
         check the small drawer next to the 'bed' to find this Book.
     7 > Go to the same house where you can find #6. On the ground floor, go into 
         the room with the counter, and there search the small cabinet on the 
         wall.
     8 > Between the row of houses with Natasha, and the house with the 
         Storekeeper, there's a lone house with a walled-off garden. Enter this 
         house, and head into the room with the general and the soldiers. Here, 
         check out the shelves to find the piece.
     9 > If you go towards the enemy base gate from the starting point, you'll 
         come past couple of houses on the right side of the street. Enter the 
         first big house you come by, it has a green and a red roof, and a 
         balcony. Make your way to the second floor, and there enter a room with 
         a desk and some file cabinets. Check the fallen file cabinet and the 
         normal one to find two Books.
    10 > Near the Green Beret's starting point are two small houses. One has got 
         some white flowers near the entrance; enter the other house, the one on 
         the corner of the street. Inside, check the shelves.
    11 > Go into the house with the Shopkeeper (check your Goals to find the 
         house). Inside, climb a ladder to the second floor. In the small room 
         on the second floor, look for a chest near the window. The Book's inside.
    12 > Like #9, this one's inside of one of the file cabinets on the second 
         floor of the big house west of the start. Read the description for #9 
         to get there.
    13 > From the town, go through the gate, into the enemy base. Enter the first 
         building on your left, the one with the short stairs in front. Inside, 
         go through the only other door. Above you, you'll see the corridor that 
         runs above the gate. Don't climb up the ladder, however. Check out the 
         cabinets next to the door you just came through to find a Bonus Book.
    14 > This one's inside the house of the Shopkeeper (check your goals to find 
         him). It's on the shelves behind the Shopkeeper.

    A big 'Thank you' goes out to Strategy Planet, for making the great Bonus 
    Book Locators (http://www.strategyplanet.com/commandos/bbook_index.html). 
    Without this site, I wouldn't have been able to find all pieces myself.
    
    Also, thanks to Pyro for making such a great, addicting game.
