Cassino

The world famous monastery at Monte Cassino was a key strongpoint on the Nazis' Gustav Line blocking the Allied advance on Rome. 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, India and New Zealand were all thrown into the fray with appalling loss of life.
