Eight for Eternity by Cecil Roberts

"Mr. Roberts as usual interests you in all his people." SUNDAY TIMES For four hundred years, St. Benedict's Monastery stood on a mountain between Rome and Naples but when war swept over Monte Cassino it was utterly demolished. Seven men - among them a Leicestershire lad, a Benedictine monk and a Gurkha - are brought to this hill of death. Between them they had experienced the vagaries of fortune, young love and bitter disappointment. Their story ended abruptly, just like the great monastery, wiped out in a few hours by a handful of nameless youths fulfilling orders. But was this the end or did something happen to these men? Something which was related not to time and place but to Eternity?
