For a complete and beautifully illustrated history of the Abbey of Monte Cassino (including WWII), get hold of the outstanding 1987 English translation by Armand Citerella of the book "Monte Cassino" by Tommaso Leccisotti who presided for many years over the great archives of the Abbey, which were mercifully saved from destruction in WWII.

 

If you are there bur don't speak Italian, ask persistently at the abbey bookshop for the Inglese version of the book - it will probably not be on display.

 

 or Buy through Amazon USA
