Well researched account of the bitter struggle for this Italian fortress during WW2. Written by a author who fought in the battle, he gives a balanced agument to why the famous Benedictine monastry was controversially destroyed by Allied bombers, as well as a detailed account of the hardships endured by all. It makes me want to go and visit the place now!!!!

A fine account that examines the day by day grind to secure the Benedictine monastery and the road to Rome in 1944. The author looks at both the individual actions, and the larger political considerations that contributed to the costly victory. An excellent account, well paced and well informed.

A good read for anyone interested in military history; good for the general reader and the specialist alike. Having visited Monte Cassino an experience which helped the book to come alive. Could have had more mention of British involvement.

Everybody has heard of Cassino, I knew it was hard won but never knew to what extent, the bravery and determination of the troops is incredible.
