Our dramatic yet restrained picture shows the Battle of Monte Cassino, which was a hard-fought engagement between the Allies and the Germans embedded in the rural landscape surrounding the ancient hilltop abbey, a protected historic zone. The muted colours and distant explosions on Monte Cassino cleverly understate the fiercely violent battle there which saw four assaults and lasted over four months in Spring, 1944.
