World War Two by Drone (2021): S01E02 – The Fight for Italy


In this six-part series, battlefield historians and military experts utilise cutting edge, drone mounted technology to re-examine some of the second world war’s most iconic sites.

Also known as WW2 from Above, WWII by Drone, and World War 2 by Drone.


In 1943, the Allies launched a campaign to liberate Italy from the grip of the occupying Nazi forces. The key to their success: the capture of Rome, but strong German resistance and tough terrain turned what was supposed to be a five-week mission into a nearly year-long conflict. Now, military experts are using the latest drone imaging technology to understand how the Nazis used the Italian landscape to their advantage and to discover more about what happened at Monte Cassino monastery, the site of one of WWII’s most controversial bombings.
