During World War II, Operation Cold Comfort was a failed British Commando raid that began with a parachute drop north of Verona on the night of 17 February, 1945.
The team and their equipment was widely scattered, making it impossible for them to destroy the rail line leading to the Brenner Pass. The commander and one of the raiders were captured by the Germans and killed.
