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.

My father in-law participated as a medic in that battle and did not talk much about it but as my wife said was bruised.He passed away several years ago but I still wear his hat once in a while and think of what he must have gone through.
