Fiume Rapido (Rapido River) Cassino
This is the site of the river-crossing faced by B Company, 28 (Maori) Battalion during Operation Avenger. The river was heavily wired and mined and covered by heavy suppressing fire by the Germans. The author conducted a river-crossing at this location at 0800h, January 29, 2014 - he's still frozen... Photo courtesy of the author, Jan 2014.
