The second installment of TLN Media Group`s  `I Remember` Series, this moving documentary features the historic Battle of Ortona during WWII (December 20 to 28th in 1943).  The battle was so intense and brutal, that war correspondents nicknamed Ortona “Italian Stalingrad,” or “Little Stalingrad” because the fighting was identical to the chaos that unfolded in the Russian city.  Today, only a handful of civilians, migrants and veterans are left to give their testimonial of what they witnessed – this is their story.
