THE BATTLE OF MONTE CASSINO

The Spirit to God, the Body to Italy, and the Heart to Poland

“The German fortress fell, the road to Rome was open. On June 4, allied troops entered the oldest capital of Europe. They paraded in the Eternal City without us. We, Poles, were burying the dead after a hard battle. They all found eternal rest in the cemetery at the foot of hill 593, for which they had fought their hardest battle. 1072 soldiers’ graves decorated with white crosses were built there.”
