The Battle for Monte Cassino, which blocked the Allies' road to Rome in early 1944, was fought over terrible terrain and in appalling conditions, and saw human sacrifice and privation almost beyond imagination. Based on the first-hand accounts of veterans from around the world, Matthew Parker has recreated this epic battle from the experiences of the men who fought it.
A very good insight to a fruitless battle, with huge loss on both side. Great breaking in places at the senseless loss of lives.

it was absolutely wonderful. never wanted it to end. I would highly recommend this is worth a listen.
A bit disappointed with this audiobook. I bought it as my late uncle was actually there. The music that was offputting as was the accents used for eyewitness accounts.
