Battle for Monte Cassino by George Forty

A battle of the First World War fought with the weapons of the Second has been the verdict of historians on the Battle for Monte Cassino. Military experts have long agreed that it would hardly be possible to find a better example of an impregnable natural defensive barrier than that provided by the Apennine mountain range, particularly its foothills and river valleys centred around Monte Cairo and Monte Cassino, which guarded the road northwards to Rome. When this natural barrier was defended by brave, resolute and battle-hardened troops occupying well-constructed defensive positions, in particular the seemingly impregnable Gustav Line, then it is easy to see how and why the Germans held out for so long against the massive Allied assaults, despite the attackers having lavish air and artillery support.
