        View images from the Battle of Monte Cassino. It began in January of 1944 and was comprised of four separate assaults, as part of the critical World War II Allied effort to retake Rome, Italy, from the Germans. German forces held fast to the territory surrounding Monte Cassino, an historic 6th century abbey founded on a hilltop. Allied forces assaulted the German lines in a number of battles over the course of several months before they were able to break through, and clear a path to Rome. Allied casualties from these assaults numbered in the tens of thousands
