Italy - Cassino City Memorials

Cassino City Memorials - Italy - World War II Battle - European Tourist Guide - euro-t-guide.com
The Memorials at the town of Cassino are created in memory of the famous "Battle of Monte Cassino" during World War II, where Cassion was almost totally devastated. The town of Cassino is located in the valley just below the famous Monastery at Monte Cassino. As the monastery turned out to be an almost impossible stronghold to conquer for the Allied forces the "Battle of Monte Cassino" raged for months - with the town of Cassino in the centre.
