I see from BBC's ceefax service that the British director John Irvin is making a film about the Battle of Monte Cassino. He says that he did not want to make a film about a bloodbath (John directed Hamburger Hill, amongst others), and instead that it would be "a moving story of tenderness, love and hope with a sense of salvation within it".
So many battles of the Second World War have made it to the big screen, but it is suprising that one of the most pivotal battles has not made it until now. The film is being made to coincide with the 70th anniversary of the battle, so we will have a little time to wait, but let's hope that the role of the Polish forces will be faithfully portrayed.
