By the beginning of 1944 Allied Forces were massed in Southern Italy. The German and Italian troops had erected various substantial lines of defence across Italy to hold and defeat the Allies. In early 1944 the British and American forces were poised to attack the area of Monte Cassino. There were four Battles here and in order to divert Axis troops the Allies planned a landing around Anzio. These 2 campaigns were some of the hardest fought in WW2.
