The great monastery of Monte Cassino ? or what was left of it after the bombing ? staring down at the Kiwi soldiers in the middle of a freezing Italian winter like an evil eye . . . Cassino, 1944, was the last major battle fought by New Zealand troops, 343 of whom are buried there. Many New Zealand families have a relative who fought at Cassino. Writing with the intimacy of a novel, Tony Williams tells the story of Cassino in the words of the soldiers who fought there. His book is a story of courage and survival, and of comradeship amidst the brutality and chaos. Williams also addresses the big questions: Was the bombing of the monastery really necessary? Were Kiwi lives lost due to tactical errors higher up the chain of command? How should we assess this important chapter in our history, sixty years on? Paperback
