More About this Record

After heavy bombardment that laid waste to the historic monastery of Monte Cassino, New Zealand troops fought their way into the devastated town on 15 March 1944. The New Zealand infantry fought from house to house under constant direct fire from the German guns. Cassino did not finally fall until May.
