Description
In this fine account of the war in Italy and the role of special forces there in the final years of World War II, William Fowler spotlights the last operational airborne combat drop of the war, Operation Herring. The fact that the Italians had formed two governments—one backing the Allies and one a puppet German government—meant that a secret war was vital to the Allied conventional forces, with partisans, the SAS, SOE, and the OSS all playing important roles. Intending to decisively end the Italian campaign, Operation Herring was launched in April 1945, and though it lasted 72 hours rather than the intended 36, the operation owed much of its success to the combined involvement of the special ops fighters.
