Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The battle itself had four phases lasting several months and also affected adjoining hills, but the bombing on 15 February was based on flimsy evidence of the presence of German lookouts at the Abbey that wasn't proven to this day. After the bombing, German lookouts did deploy on the hill, hiding among the rubble, so the aerial bombing brought absolutely no military gain.
