World War II, ruins of San Pietro Infine


San Pietro Infine, Italy (IT)
The town was the site of a major military engagement in World War II and, thus, the subject of a well-known war-time documentary about that battle, The Battle of San Pietro, directed by John Huston. The modern town is actually a rebuilt version, the older and original town—a few hundred meters away—having been totally destroyed in the war.
