One of the longest and bloodiest battles of World War II, marked by assaults by the Allies against the Winter Line in Italy held by the German forces during the Italian Campaign of World War II. During the battle the Allies struggled to capture the western anchor of the Gustav Line and the Abbey of Monte Cassino. With several offensives failing, only the launch of Operation Diadem in May 1944 did finally allow the Second Polish Corps to succeed in capturing the Abbey of Monte Cassino and effectively opening the Allied armies the road to Rome.
