you never hear to much about this battle. even though it was one of the most intense in my opinion. same for Ortona.

I think commentary on it in the English language is somewhat muted because it was a catalog of command and intelligence blunders on the Allied side, compounded by undeniable and spectacular feats of valour by the *enemy*, culminating in what was a bloody and Pyrrhic victory at best after months of unimaginative and costly pounding.

For the Germans it was a genuine epic of fortitude.
