L'histoire de la bataille de Monte Cassino - Documentaire

Trapped in and around ancient Casinum in wet wintry conditions, the British commander of the 4th Indian Infantry Division, General Francis Tuker, who believed that parts of the hilltop monastery were occupied by Germans with armour, asked for aerial bombing to destroy the monastery. General von Senger, aware of the huge risk he was taking, had everything transported to Rome and Perugia a month before the Allied vanguard arrived on his horizon. Startled, my friend was about to give as good as he had got when the old abbot, Don Martino Matrinola, slipped into the archive. Any mention of the occasion, and the elfin and normally genial archivist, Don Faustino, was transformed; his deep-seated anger boiled over. Young Benedictines like Thomas Aquinas were first initiated in this serene spot.{/INSERTKEYS}{/PARAGRAPH} His words have long lingered in my mind and over the years I have met many survivors of this historic battle between the Allied and Axis forces in Through them I have become familiar with oral histories and the battlefield archaeology. The museum is a treasure-house. As soon as the bombing had finished, they had fled down the mountain, guided by German officers. Vincenzo and which he had caressed the previous summer in his long, claw-like fingers. Italy reacts to death of Ennio Morricone. None spoke well of the experience, though all the Allied veterans recalled with pleasure and gratitude their encounters with the long-suffering Italians. The Allied bombing that destroyed the monastery of Monte Cassino on 15 February was a crime against humanity, I was told more than once. The battle of Monte Cassino β€” or rather the four battles β€” was a Pyrrhic victory. As long as we stuck to archaeology and history, our relationship at S. Few monuments exceed this cemetery in paying tribute to the heroism and tragic inhumanity of war. Von Senger astutely recognised the threat and retreated. If you select just one, pause at the open page of the 11th-century encyclopaedia, De rerum naturis On the nature of things , an opulent copy of the work by the 9th-century scientist and Benedictine abbot, Hrabanus Maurus. I recall this moment in the archive because I had touched history. A key person in this rebuilding was Don Angelo Pantoni, an engineer by training and passionate archaeologist. Quite how Benedict made use of the earlier temple as he created his sixth-century monastery is not known. It was a miracle of sorts. I knew Don Angelo in his 80s when he visited my excavations at S. There are archaeological remains galore but, unlike the Normandy battlefield of June-July , it is not organised and really should be. Its most conspicuous monument is the over-restored Roman theatre next to the modern museum at the foot of monastery hill. This replicates the great church that Napoleon Bonaparte sacked in What he found were the foundations of the ninth-century abbey-church of Abbot Gisulf, one of the great figures of the age of Charlemagne. Boldly, the defenders knocked out the leading tanks, and so paralysed a dozen or so in their rear. After an immense artillery barrage from Allied guns aimed at the monastery and Germans in its surroundings, Allied troops pressed on all fronts, still aiming to encircle the German army. Close this road, von Senger rationalised, and the Allies would be unable to take Rome. Its engineers widened an existing mule-track to enable Sherman tanks to approach the monastery from the rear. The battle pivoted around the monastery of Monte Cassino because the home of the Benedictines commands a high promontory over the old Roman road, the Via Casilina. {PARAGRAPH}{INSERTKEYS}Rome mayor seeks to rename Auditorium after Ennio Morricone. This follows the valley from Rome to the Bay of Naples. At the foot of the hill sits ancient Casinum. None of its historic churches survived the battle. Not so in the town of Cassino below. The third battle involved a frontal assault while a road β€” the Cavendish Road β€” was cut around the contours behind the monastery to facilitate a bold Allied pincer movement using armour. The battle lasted from December until May , led to the comprehensive destruction of the town of Cassino, and at the conclusion, the main objective β€” defeating the formidable German army β€” was eschewed in favour of the liberation of Rome. After a fierce debate among the Allied commanders the bombing was undertaken with very little warning by US planes on 15 February The aftermath, though, made the monastery an impregnable redoubt. Don Faustino, the archivist at Monte Cassino, was never slow to answer this rhetorical question. There were indeed Germans here. Its ground plan is discretely marked out with neat stones in the outer cloister immediately after entering the monastery today. Maori crews in Sherman tanks advanced in single file up the steep track. However the Allied commanders then prevaricated and dug in, and the Germans rapidly brought up troops to attack; what happened next was a grotesque battle in the marshland around the beach-head until May. Terrified at first, the German defenders then realised that the American-built tanks were not supported by infantry. Made after the failure of the second February battle, it was the brainchild of the New Zealand division. This act revealed how raw the bitter wartime struggle remained, 40 years afterwards. Poles, in particular, pay homage to the exquisitely arranged cemetery in the valley immediately east of the monastery that commemorates those who ultimately vanquished the German defenders. I responded and, gauging the twinkle in his old eyes, introduced my diplomat friend as someone who was curious about the infamous bombing. What to do in Rome in July Rembrandt masterpiece returns to Rome after two centuries. Monte Cassino attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors. Thousands perished and the ancient monastery of Monte Cassino had been blown to smithereens. The last battle in May was colossal in scope. There are also moving Commonwealth and German war cemeteries close to Monte Cassino. On the far side of this first cloister lies the locked glass door down to the old ceremonial entrance. Today the story of the bombing may seem like distant history in the modern monastery. Lasting over a decade in the s and s, with American support, the early modern monastery in all its baroque glory was lovingly restored. The impact of the battle has left an indelible mark on Italy and in the minds of many, while the performance of some of the generals was in the end reminiscent of the later rather than the earlier Roman empire. Instead, the busy little town has an anonymous feel to it, the result of expedient post-war reconstruction. Around its outer walls were block-built tombs with bases made from tiles pierced with holes to permit the bodies to decompose gradually. Ennio Morricone dies in Rome. Founded in the 10th century, it was essentially an overspill monastery for Monte Cassino at its apogee. Only its museum, half a kilometre up monastery hill, and the refurbished mediaeval castle with its pencil thin tower come close to recalling the rich heritage of this place before Take the SS to S. It is as well to pause in this mass graveyard before rediscovering a quotidian rhythm in the formidable monastery that overshadows it. Maria dell'Albaneta. Mention the war, and they all but spat with a lingering distaste. Elia Fiumerapido Sora from the centre of Cassino and after 3 kms, immediately after crossing a river, turn left on the Via Orsala and follow the narrow lane to a sign that marks the beginning of the Cavendish Road. How did these treasures survive? None more so than for the monks of Monte Cassino. It was a taste of things to come. The abbot, bent and thin, conveyed an immediate eminence. No less significant were the French colonial troops, who traversed the high mountain country above Minturnae Minturno west of Cassino, intending to descend upon the rear of the Axis army. All of this can be discovered on the ground. Ennio Morricone wrote his own obituary. It overlooks the formidable remains of the monastery of S. Far from senescent, his beady eyes focussed upon me and he asked about a unique, ninth-century coin I had discovered at S. Elliott Erwitt: Icons exhibition in Rome. Liberating them justified the struggle. This restless monk had endured the siege and spotted his chance in the aftermath. Thanks to his antiquarian exactitude, the destruction of Monte Cassino seems barely conceivable today as you climb the steep flight of steps, conceived originally by Abbot Desiderius in the mid to late 11th century, up to a closed outer atrium. Allied troops pressed through Cassino town and began a cat-and-mouse battle with the enemy. This battle β€” Operation Dickens β€” lasted between 15 and 24 March. The sea landings were unopposed and reconnaissance troops managed to drive into Rome. This first battle successfully diverted German troops from Rome but the opportunity was eschewed and so started the slogging trench warfare. It tells a remarkable story. Beyond is a farm where the monastery makes its own beer. And so, Don Martino explained, the abbot and he and a handful of monks as well as hundreds of refugees had sought safety in the deep mediaeval bowels of the largely baroque monastery. Don Faustino visibly retreated a step. The Allies were ill-prepared for the obstinate German tactics, prompting a bi-passing operation at Anzio. Rome public transport strike on 10 July. This creative adventure on 19 March came to nothing, but today it is by far the best way to get a sense of the terrain that gave the German defenders a huge advantage. Deaf from birth, twinkling eyes, eccentric in every way in his dishevelled habit, his passion was making sense of the past. The battle unwittingly pitched brother against brother. Inside the basilica is a faux baroque church. Here in December the Germans commanded by General Fridolin von Senger und Etterlin, an Oxford Rhodes scholar, created a fortification that extended west to the Tyrrhenian Sea near ancient Minturnae modern-day Minturno and east over the mountains to the far Adriatic Sea.
