Some History

In 1944, Allied troops captured Monte Cassino in Italy after one of the longest and bloodiest battles of World War II.

The Polish flag is flying over the ruins of the ancient Italian monastery which has been a symbol of German resistance since the beginning of the year.
Polish troops entered the hill-top abbey this morning, six days after the latest attacks began on this strategic stronghold at the western end of the German defensive position known as the Gustav Line.
British troops have taken control of the fortified town of Cassino at the foot of the "Monastery Hill".

It has a little vid and some other stuff too, if you follow the link.
