About this title

Synopsis:

Historical Times [Published date: 1988]. First US Edition, published under the title Casino: Anatomy of the battle. Hard cover, 192 pp. 150 black and white photos and maps throughout. [From front jacket flap] THE BATTLE FOR Monte Cassino was one of the most savage conflicts of the Second World War; British, New Zealand, Indian, French, Polish and American forces were halted and locked with Kesselring's crack German troops in the drive to capture Rome. It became a long, bitter struggle in which the ancient Benedictine Abbey, dominating the line of the Allied advance, became a symbol of the determination of both sides. Many aspects of the struggle still remain controversial: the tactical direction of the Allied offensive, for example, and in particular the role of Freyberg and other commanders in the destruction of the monastery and town. Even the question of whether the battle was necessary or whether the Allies should have by-passed Cassino altogether is still a topic of intense debate. The author illuminates these and other crucial issues using a wealth of documentary evidence from Allied and German sources, and his detailed day-today narrative provides a graphic account of how the infantry troops on both sides responded to the combat in the town, the Liri valley and on the mountain itself The result is a uniquely rounded study of a battle which will intrigue military historians for a long time to come.
