Mass for the Dead at Montecassino Italy

Here's a few quick facts: Battle of Monte Cassino - Conflict & Dates: The Battle of Monte Cassino was fought January 17 to May 18, 1944, during World War II (1939-1945). Armies & Commanders
  • Field Marshal Albert Kesselring
  • Colonel General Heinrich von Vietinghoff
  • German 10th Army

  • Here's what it looked like in 1945
