The invasion has begun,
The Battle of Monte Cassino
On this day one of the bloodiest and most gruelling series of battles started in the â€œsoft underbelly of Europeâ€. While it is not the most well known battle of World War II or the biggest, it was unique in the aspect that it was fought in some of the most formidable conditions, in the mountains, in the flooded valleys, through the streets and over the battered and muddy plains. Every step was paid for in sweat, every gain paid for with tears and every victory in blood. Some of the most determined forces of the war met in battle from the veteran 2nd New Zealand Division to the tenacious 1st Fallschirmjagerdivision, both forces not wanting to give an inch. The battle lasted four months resulting in a tactical victory for the Allies causing over 180,000 casualties, and ultimately leads to the liberation of Rome, the first Axis capitol to be taken.
