CASSINO 1944. The world famous monastery at Monte Cassino was a key strongpoint on the Nazisí Gustav Line blocking the Allied advance on Rome. Attacking USA and Allied troops were mowed down time and time again.

Click to EnlargeCASSINO 1944. by Lieutenant Colonel Ian Blackwell. From January to March 1944 there were four distinct battles for Cassino which was fiercely defended by German elite forces. Troops from USA, Britain, Poland, Canada, France and India were all thrown into the fray with appalling loss of life.

The Allied campaign in Italy has, by comparison, been less studied than other World War Two theaters and yet it included not only extensive and genuine Allied collaboration but also air, land and sea deployments and battle-zone conditions and situations not encountered elsewhere in the 1939-45 war.

The furious and lengthy battle for Monte Cassino was a unique, extravagant example for it was fought over typically difficult terrain that afforded the defender the advantage, was not capable of being by-passed, and involved many different military strategies.
