You may wish to explore the Hold City of Whiterun more thoroughly prior to the commencement of this quest to fully learn the layout and the weak areas the enemy may wish to exploit.
Objective: Get your orders from Galmar Stone-Fist
Target: Galmar Stone-Fist, Whiterun Military Camp
Leave the solid stone walls of Windhelm and journey to the Whiterun Military Camp where Galmar is amassing his troops for the assault on Whiterun. The camp is just south of the city’s main winding road that leads up through an outer gate, past a drawbridge, and to the inner gate and the city.
As you arrive, the air becomes thick with the smoke from countless fire-catapult barrages. Ulfric hopes to take this city without destroying too much of the defensive wall.

You now have one important task: the attack and capture of Whiterun!
Objective: Break through the enemy barricade
