The biggest battle in bloody Italy
By hhpodesta February 28, 2017
On the edge of a mountain, near Montecassino, was a historical monastery, had been there for over 1400 years, the allies think the Germans use it as a lookout post, then, 200 allied bombers drop to it more than 500 tons of bombs to it, and transformed it into a pile of stones, in WWII nothing is sacred, it turns everything's into an inferno... The battle for Cassino was probably the most bitter struggle of the entire Italian campaign. The dominating peak of Montecassino crowned by its magnificent but doomed medieval monastery was the key to the entire Gustav Line, a formidable system of defences that stretched right across the Italian peninsula. This position completely dominated the Liri valley and Route 6, the strategically vital road to Rome. Between January and May 1944 the Allies struggled amid inhospitable terrain and dreadful weather to dislodge the German paratroops that tenaciously defended the vital mountaintop. This book details the dramatic events of the battle to break the Gustav Line.
