A Kiwi Nightmare: The Battles of Monte Cassino
Aspect Ratio: 4:3
Director: Jim Greenhough
Another 50th reunion of New Zealand soldiers with their German counterparts, this time at the meat grinder, which was Monte Cassino in Italy.
Kiwi General Bernard Fryberg gave the controversial order to bomb the historic monastery believed to be occupied by German troops. This programme takes more of a historic angle than El Alamein, and sheds new light on the famous battle.
