184 FARRAN, Roy Operation Tombola. Second Edition in dustjacket. signed
Arms and Armour Press, London / New York / Sydney, 1986, ISBN:0853687498 
FARRAN, Roy. Operation Tombola. London / New York / Sydney : Arms and Armour Press, (1986). Second Edition. Pp (6),7-256. Maps. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. First published in 1960 by Collins, London. "In March 1945, as the Allied advance in Italy approached its climax, Roy Farran dropped by parachute into the Northern Apennines. Operation Tombola, the last and the most ambitious or the Special Air Service expeditions, had begun "Tombola' differed in several respects from previous S.A.S. operations. Rather than adopt the usual hit and run tactics employed in S.A.S. raids on Germanheadquarters and lines of supply, Farran decided to join forces with the I talian partisans in the area, to occupy the inaccessible valleys of the Apennines and to form an organized resistance in the rear of the main German army. These tactics were remarkably successful. At the head of his force, Farran stormed a German corps headquarters, resisted a full-scale attack on his valley, survived a nightmarish ride through the German ranks, and for six weeks played havoc with their lines of communication, eventually joining forces with the advancing American army. [...] In Operation Tombola, he describes his adventures in a simple, light-hearted manner which belies their audacity, while the rivalries between the Partisans, the girl staffetas with pistols stuffed in their belts and the killed pper whom Farran had included in a supply drop add a delightful comic opera touch.
