Monty recounts one of the most successful missions ever carried out by the SAS, and their daring escape from behind enemy lines in northern Italy. A small SAS group were dropped by parachute deep in Nazi-occupied territory to create chaos in the fascist ranks with unpredictable lightning attacks. Monty meets local Italian survivors who courageously helped to protect the SAS troops, and tells the extraordinary story of how just 33 SAS soldiers outwitted several thousand enemy troops.
