Description

Poster of monastery ruins in France. Print is mounted on cardboard. Description under the print reads, "Cassino, Italy- Overlooking Cassino from its hilltop location, the ancient Benedictine Monastery is but a shell-torn ghost of the once graced Monastery Hill. Used as a fortress by the Germans, the structure was pounded intensively by Allied aerial and long range artillery pieces. Now, in spite of the great gaps torn in its walls, the Allies hope to restore the monastery."
