The town of Cori (the ancient Cora) was perched on Monte Lipini's downslope
at an elevation of 1,267 feet where the Germans had a clear view over
the Anzio beachhead. Cori was captured by the 30th Regiment the same day
as Cisterna (late afternoon on May 25, 1944) and with it came the complete collapse of all enemy resistance facing the breakout force of the 3rd Division
and the 1st Armored Division.
