About this title


A story about the Allied assault on Monte Cassino in February 1944 seen through the eyes of Colonel Yuell and his men of the North Yorkshires, veterans of the Desert Campaign in Africa. Famous for its hilltop monastery for over a thousand years, Monte Cassino achieved a new renown when it became a German bastion against the Allied advance through Italy. Even when the abbey buildings had been reduced to rubble, the mountain itself continued to command the adjoining river valleys and to black the road to Rome.

After turning to full-time writing, Harris wrote adventure stories and created a sequence of crime novels around the quirky fictional character Chief Inspector Pel. A master of war and crime fiction, his enduring novels are versatile and entertaining.
