I loved playing this game. Anyway, I forgot what the last mission was about so here's a tip from gamefaqs:

"In this Mission you'll want to control the Air, if you can achieve Air Superiority, or at least keep Sturm grounded, you shouldn't have any surprises to expect. Another important thing to note is, that Sturm's troops have a high attack bonus, but they have a Defense deduction, so always make sure you attack him, never stay in defensive mode. Always attack, attack, ATTACK! And you should win this mission."

or you could read the other walkthroughs there. Hope it helps!

I found the strategy of just holding him behind the river and just building up an army way bigger than his worked perfectly for me. Its not going to get you the best rating but you will win. He cant build air units so once you take those out you are set to dominate the air. I also let Andy capture most of the cities on your side of the map and feed all the incoming money to him.
