Bloody Ortona - Poem by Trevor Jones

Come on now boys Death awaits
He does not love, he only hates
Now cross the land which no man owns
Fight through Ortona, on to Rome
Down to Dead Market we shall charge
To jaws of Hell, cross Charon's barge
On through the attics we shall fight
As young men die on Christmas night
Dominion fought like Luci's hounds
And scared the Germans out of town
And in the eve Fritz slipped away
We woke to silence the next day
