Mr. Jonasz interviews veterans of WW II Polish forces, as well those from American and British ground forces, in recounting the 5-month long struggle to gain control of a portion of Italian terrain which would grant them access to a vital route into Rome (known as The Appian Way). The result is a narrative told from unique perspectives providing a small window into the role that Polish forces played in the overall Allied victory. This film has a good balance between captivating participant interviews and thoughtful graphics of troop movements and offensive strategy on the landscapes surrounding Monte Cassino.
