Description

An account of the last major battle of World War II involving New Zealand troops - the battle for Cassino. It was one in which New Zealand soldiers fought hand-to-hand in the rubble with great bravery and their stories are a critical part of the book. There is also controversy surrounding this battle, which continues today. The great Italian medieval monastery of Monte Cassino, once a great repository of European civilisation, was destroyed by the Allies in the battle to save it.
