If you are interested in the news of the rebuilding of Monte Cassino - you might be interested to read one of the best accounts from the time it was destroyed, from a private soldier who was there - Charlie Framp describes his experiences of the Second World War in his book Crimson Skies.  

In the foreward to this book, Lord (Len) Murray writes "... this impressive book . . . I have never read a more gripping account of the war as experienced by a private soldier.  We are all in debt to this English infantryman . . . for what he did and his account of it."

Doesn't something about this topic strike you as a trifle odd?  I thought Prince Harry visited Monte Cassino (with two 's's) a year ago.

Apologies for the spelling mistake - now corrected and yes it was last year Prince Harry visited.

there is Campaign 134 covering this Battle! However, it is quite old, and such an important Battle surely deserves a new approach!
