Linferno di Montecassino

Insieme allo sbarco in Normandia e all'assedio di Stalingrado la battaglia di Montecassino è tra gli eventi più noti e studiati della Seconda guerra mondiale perché nessun'altra campagna bellica del teatro europeo ha coinvolto tante diverse nazionalità e culture Tristemente celebre anche per l'ingiustificato bombardamento dell'antica abbazia medievale benedettina la battaglia di Montecassino non vide tuttavia l'aviazione come protagonista e neppure i carri armati; Montecassino fu pre. This is the second book I have read dedicated to Cassino and one of several on the combined CassinoAnzio campaign The book brings an uniue perspective to the battle by focusing on how the the various Armies were successful or not successful Of particular interest was the success of the French under Juin and the Polish Corps that finally took Monte Cassino Caddick Adams is much friendlier to British General Harold Alexander than most historians There is also a nice focus on the 8th Army s breakthrough up the Liri Valley We know that Churchill liked Alexander but the author considers him to have similar skills to Eisenhower as a diplomat general The author also goes easy on American General Mark Clark s decision to take Rome and deliberately disobey orders by not cutting off the retreating German 10th Army Caddick Adams notes that there was no guarantee of trapping the 10th Army which seems to be a spurious argument for disobeying ordersInteresting FactsNearly 15000 mules were used during the campaign as they proved the only reliable means of bringing supplies up and the injured and dead down from the mountainsThe Germans would mount a revolving Panther turret called a Pantherturm to a concrete bunker in the Gustav line One killed 17 Allied tanks in 3 days the Pantherturm leader actually becoming a tank ace Because of such a lack of food in Naples it is estimated that 42000 women out of 150000 engaged in regular or part time prostitution Angels & Demons (Angels & Demons, tra gli eventi più noti e studiati della Seconda guerra mondiale perché nessun'altra campagna bellica del Washington!

Si della battaglia le motivazioni militari sono accuratamente ricostruite in uesto saggio già di grande successo in Inghilterra Peter Caddick Adams è uno storico militare da oltre vent'anni e insegna alla UK Defence Academy Ha partecipato come militare e riservista alle missioni in Bosnia Ira e Afghanistan Ha guidato sopralluoghi ai campi di battaglia in oltre 50 siti storici Membro dal 2010 della Royal Historical Society ha pubblicato diversi titoli di successo tra cui Monty and Romme. This is the first book I read about anything from the Italian Campaign and only my second about the German West Front Caddick Adams explains clearly how and why the Allies came to face the Germans on the Gustav Line and why they wanted to break through at Monte Cassino The writing blends eyewitness accounts with tactical considerations from both sidesWhat he says about Alexander s great diplomatic skills can also be applied to himself He shows all the nationalities fighting on the Cassino Front as eually brave strong resilient and human under hellish conditions Bitter cold at the beginning bare rocks having to rely on mules for transport the summer heat dust He gives credit where it is due for example the title of chapter 10 Poland the Brave Likewise he doesn t convicts Clarck s decision of pushing for Rome in stead off driving to Valmonte in the hope of trapping the escaping German Tenth ArmyCentral of course is the bombing of the Cassino Abbey and a month later the Cassino Town Caddick Adams tells of both sides of the bombing discussion He continues with the capture of the abbey and breaching the Gustav Line and the pursuit through the Liri Valley Finally reaching Rome Where other auteurs are often distracted with writing pages that read like Meanwhile at the F hrerbunker Hitler is having a heated debate with Caddick Adams stick to the topic at hand and rarely talks above division levelsCaddick Adams could have said the same as this uote from Alexander No other troops in the world but German paratroops could have stood up to such an ordeal and then gone on fighting with such ferocityAlso important for a military history books are the maps I liked that all six are right at first pages of the book These maps are as clear as I find his writing giving enough information for one who starts reading about the Italian Cassino campaign without pushing towards unneccesary details

    The battles of Monte Cassino were part of the Allied march through Italy during WWII Often overshadowed by the great invasion at Normandy these battles were both diversionary and essential in the Allied cause It is a work of meticulous preparation and research Indeed the last 30% of the book is devoted to exhaustive Footnotes Biblio

    I haven't yet read a lot of this type of history but I can't imagine there's a better example out there The author tells the story compellingly fairly and thoroughly without driving into minutiae when we needed to know which sub element of which force did what we also knew why he was telling us that This was a great look at the battles for Monte Cassino with some looks at the larger Italian campaign race for Rome with a

    The narrative of the battle is fine but this is a seriously lacking book For anyone going to Cassino the only reason I slogged through it the lack of maps makes it a poor guide For any audience though the author’s terrible analysis conjectures really about command decisions are unbearable Especially for an American audience Montgomery’s “incredible march” from Calabria didn’t save the Salerno landing reporter

    I am a huge fan of Caddick Adams’ prose and the depth to his works; Monte Cassino is no different While I knew a few general details about the aura surrounding the Monte Cassino battle this was the first book I had read that details the four month struggle for the position This book left me uestioning the sensibility of continuing offensive action on the Italian front after June 1944 One has to uestion the le
