Linferno di Montecassino

Insieme allo sbarco in Normandia e all'assedio di Stalingrado la battaglia di Montecassino è tra gli eventi più noti e studiati della Seconda guerra mondiale perché nessun'altra campagna bellica del teatro europeo ha coinvolto tante diverse nazionalità e culture Tristemente celebre anche per l'ingiustificato bombardamento dell'antica abbazia medievale benedettina la battaglia di Montecassino non vide tuttavia l'aviazione come protagonista e neppure i carri armati; Montecassino fu pre.

Sa «alla vecchia maniera» grazie a un enorme sacrifico della fanteria Su un terreno difficile montuoso inospitale tra il fango e la morte sempre incombente suadre di soldati si trovarono a dover conuistare un obiettivo stabilito da uomini di potere seduti in lontanissime stanze di comando Una vera Stalingrado in miniatura conuistata palmo a palmo dopo mesi di sfiancante guerriglia che sono costati ai due schieramenti circa 200000 morti in 129 terribili giorni La loro storia le varie fa. The narrative of the battle is fine but this is a seriously lacking book For anyone going to Cassino the only reason I slogged through it the lack of maps makes it a poor guide For any audience though the author s terrible analysis conjectures really about command decisions are unbearable Especially for an American audience Montgomery s incredible march from Calabria didn t save the Salerno landing reporters attached to Eighth Army grew so frustrated at Monty s glacial pace that they took off in jeeps ahead of the Eighth Army and reached the beachhead on their own The X Corps attack across the Galigiardo wasn t so successful that Clark could have reinforced it and cancelled all II Corps attacks on the Rapido And on and on Errors and faulty analysis abound This is a battle narrative not a piece of scholarship Perhaps that was my mistake not the author s but this was painful to slog through regardless

    The battles of Monte Cassino were part of the Allied march through Italy during WWII Often overshadowed by the great invasion at Normandy these battles were both diversionary and essential in the Allied cause It is a work of meticulous preparation and research Indeed the last 30% of the book is devoted to exhaustive Footnotes Bibliography and IndexThe writing is chronological and is infused with uotations from survivors memoirs personal in

    Peter Caddick Adams is a history of the Allied attempts to break out of the Neapolitan beachheads to penetrate the Gustav line in 1944 a wrenching and not oft told account of the Italian campaign that resulted on the one hand in the fall of Rome and on the other hand of the unnecessary destruction of Christendom

    I haven't yet read a lot of this type of history but I can't imagine there's a better example out there The author tells the story compellingly fairly and thoroughly without driving into minutiae when we needed to know which sub element of which force did what we also knew why he was telling us that This was a great look at the battles for Monte Cassino with some looks at the larger Italian campaign race for Rome with a few tidb

    I am a huge fan of Caddick Adams’ prose and the depth to his works; Monte Cassino is no different While I knew a few general details about the aura surrounding the Monte Cassino battle this was the first book I had read that details the four month struggle for the position This book left me uestioning the sensibility of continuing offensive action on the Italian front after June 1944 One has to uestion the l
