Two operations executed by the British in Southern Italy. Anyone know where there's any information about them?

All I know from this is from Wikipedia. My understanding is that it was mainly an engineering operation, to be honest, whereby a small German kampfgruppe set about demolishing all the roads and the British then followed up behind fixing them. I don't think there was a great deal of fighting, except for right by Reggia where Folgore (EDIT: Nembo) fought a local delaying action.
