MONTE CASSINO: OPENING THE ROAD TO ROME

by Richard Doherty







One of the bloodiest European battles of the Second World War was that from January to June 1944 for the Gustav Line, anchored on Monte Cassino and its Benedictine Abbey. Commanded by General Sir Harold Alexander, the Allied Army Group in Italy, consisted of the Fifth (US) and Eighth (British) Armies. Both were truly multi-national with some 20 allies nations involved. Allied commanders, using ingenuity, artillery and sophisticated close air support, triumphed over their formidable German adversaries. The book examines the campaign from the political/strategic levels to the tactical, using official records, accounts from commanders and participants, including interviews.
