The Allied approach to Monte Cassino was agonizingly slow. The commanding heights gave the Germans superb observation and fire positions. In the valleys, small rearguard groups ensured that each hamlet had its price in blood. The Irish Brigade’s attack on Sinagoga was preceded by a full divisional bombardment. Soon after the barrage lifted the “Faughs”, named after their battle cry, “Faugh a’ Ballagh”, stormed the shattered village. The bombardment had knocked out all of the defender’s mines and fixed antitank weapons, as well as spilling mounds of stones from Sinagoga’s buildings into the town’s narrow streets. The German troops and armor, however, were left unaffected. . .
Attacker: British (38th (Irish) Infantry Brigade and 16/5th Lancers Regiment, 26th Armoured brigade, 78th Infantry Division)
