Lecture | Monte Cassino: The Battle for Rome 1944

Thursday 14th March
6.30pm-8.00pm

David Harrison will give a lecture on The Battle for Rome 1944 which will cover the four battles of Monte Cassino. The first battle was launched in January and included the landing at Anzio. The second and third battles witnessed the controversial bombing of the Abbey and the fierce fighting for the Castle, Hangman’s Hill and Point 593. In the fourth battle, Operation DIADEM saw the 8th Army break the deadlock with the crossing of the Garigliano River prior to the advance up the Liri Valley. Concurrently, the US 5th Army broke out from Anzio and captured Rome on 4 June. The 6th Battalion The Black Watch was serving in the British 4th Division and took part in the fourth battle.

David Harrison is a former Army officer who is now a guide to the First and Second World War battlefields of Italy. He lives in Edinburgh and Le Marche, Italy.
