Regard your soldiers as your children and they will follow you
Into the deepest battles. Look upon them as your own beloved sons
And they will stand by you, even until death.


As a turn of the tide it is our turn to rise
The force of a union at war
March over mountains on our way to the north
On the road that will lead us to Rome

Our way will not be easy,
It will take us through hardship and pain
Hill after hill breaking their lines of defence
Head on north

Mile after mile our march carries on
No army may stop our approach
Fight side by side many nations unite
In the shadow of Monte Cassino

We fight and die together
As we head for the valley of death
Destiny calls, we'll not surrender or fail

To arms, under one banner
As a unit we stand and united we fall
As one, fighting together
Bringing an end to the slaughter

Winds are changing, head on north

Head on north
Head on north
Times are changing
Head on north

To arms, under one banner
As a unit we stand and united we fall
As one, fighting together
Bringing an end to the slaughter

Winds are changing, head on north

Trivia:

At the slopes of Monte Cassino in 1944 several nations from all around the world united against nazi Germany in four vicious battles for the monastery of St. Benedict on their way to Rome. Among the huge variety of allied troops participating in the battle was Wojtek, probably the strangest soldier brought to a modern battlefield considering he was a beer drinking bear from Iran who carried artillery shells for the Polish 22nd.
