CASSINO 1944 - Breaking the Gustav Line. 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. Ken Ford�s book details the dramatic events of the battle to break the Gustav Line.
The color plates are evocative and the maps and bird�s-eye-views make it easy to understand why the Allies had such a hard time in the area and why they needed to attack where they did.�
