Synopsis:
San Pietro lies in the valley between two hills, Monte Lungo and Monte Sammucro. It's just off Route 6, the road to Rome, and was vital to the Allied cause during their push into Italy. The battle for San Pietro saw newly re-formed Italian Forces working with the Allies for the first time. They suffered appalling losses in what quickly became a battle of epic proportions. The 'Italian Cemetry' is a monument to their exceptional courage and heroism. The town was ultimately destroyed. Defeated German forces withdrew to Cassino leaving the victorious Allies one step nearer their goal: the collapse of Mussolini's Italy.
Today, the new town of San Pietro is about a kilometre and a half from the ruins of the old one. The story of the spectacular battle that led to its creation is vividly portrayed in this awesome film.
