Professor Richard Holmes presents this four-part series analysing the key military campaigns of WWII. The battle for Cassino in 1944 saw the Allies attempting to break through a German fortified mountain pass without damaging the world famous Benedictine monastery that dominated the landscape. The men suffered terribly, as a combination of hostile terrain, atrocious winter weather and poor leadership frustrated every attack.
