Report to General Tullius in Solitude for a promotion and a reward for taking Whiterun. He will direct the Dragonborn to Legate Rikke to receive the next objective in taking Skyrim back from the Stormcloaks. After speaking with him, report to Legate Rikke at an Imperial camp. She will give objectives for each hold that must be taken, after which the Dragonborn must report back to Tullius, then return to Rikke at a new camp for the next objective. The first of these is A False Front.

Regain Winterhold Hold
360 PS3 Legate Rikke will not give the quest "Rescue From Fort Kastav."
360(Fix) PS3(Fix) Patch 1.6-Go to the nearby cooking spit and activate it, this should trigger the "Reporting for Duty" dialogue option to appear. Works for PS3 and Xbox 360 but not on PC.
360(Fix) PS3(Fix) Reloading a previous save or saving and loading may also fix this problem.
PS3(Fix) If Markarth is given to Ulfric Stormcloak during "Season Unending," clearing Fort Sungard from the Stormcloak army and then fast traveling to Rikke's camp will give the "Reporting for duty" dialogue. Going through the rest of her dialogue options might be necessary as well.
360 PS3 XB1 Legate Rikke may not give the "reporting for duty" option.
360(Fix) Using the cooking spit may also fix the issue.
360(Fix) Exiting the conversation with Legate Rikke and then re-initiating is another possible solution.
PS3(Fix) Attacking Legate Rikke fixes the problem.
PS3(Fix) Sometimes if you are fast-traveling directly to the camp the option will not appear. In those cases, fast-travel to a location near the camp and walk from there.
Regain the Pale
PC PS3 Legate Rikke may not give the "reporting for duty" option.
PC(Fix) Using the cooking spit may fix the issue.
PC(Fix) Discovering the Pale Imperial Camp and fast traveling to it may also fix the problem.
When talking to Legate Rikke the "Reporting for Duty" dialogue option may not appear.
This can be fixed by going to Fort Greenwall and killing a few Stormcloaks. The quest will start and the option "Reporting for duty" will reappear.
Regain the Reach
If the Reach was given to the Stormcloaks during "Season Unending," then it will be the Reach instead of the Rift. When talking to Legate Rikke, the "Reporting for Duty" dialogue option may not appear. This may be able to be fixed by using all three words of Unrelenting Force on Legate Rikke.
During the quest to retake Fort Sungard, the Imperials and Stormcloaks may not appear, leaving the fort empty.
