Cassino is one of the most iconic battles of the Second World War. It was here that the battle hinged on the infantryman. While so many other battles relied on mobility and speed, Cassino was about putting one foot in front of the other and living to tell the tale.
Cassino is the second Flames of War book that focuses on the Italian theatre in late war. The other is Dogs and Devils, which focuses on the battles around the Anzio beachhead. Cassino looks at the forces further inland that were locked in combat for nearly six long and bloody months.
