Marion I am awful sorry that I missed. My daughter Martha and grandaughter Meredeth, took my out to dinner to get me out of the house. Hopefully they can show it again. Did it show who made the initial attack on the Monastary? See the Casino section of the book. Ithank GOD Almighty that I am here writing this post. Rocky.

The Lost Evidence: 13 - Monte Cassino

 

In the winter of 1943, an allied army of nearly 300,000 men invades Italy. Mussolini has surrendered, but Hitler and his feared paratroop regiments refuse to give up. At Monte Cassino, 60 miles south of Rome, the Allied forces under the command of General Harold Alexander come face to face with the fanatic defenders of Hitler's Third Reich. Will the sixth century monastery of Monte Cassino, now home to the Germans, become a casualty of war? Over the next six months more than a hundred thousand allied troops will be killed and wounded. Aerial reconnaissance photographs taken at the time have now been layered over a 3-D contour map to create a CGI "model" of the battles. For the first time these original high-resolution images allow the viewer to track the battles from the air. Individual stories of courage and heroism can be placed in the exact location where they took place.

A friend of mine, Ken Kraetzer, put together a 60th Anniversary Ceremony trip with others. Here is their page from their 2005 trip.
