The main focus will be the case of coprime actions on the iterated wreath product $P_n$ of cyclic groups of order $p$, i.e. on Sylow $p$-subgroups of the symmetric groups $S_{p^n}$, where we also prove that a stronger form of the Maschke property holds. These results contribute to a future possible classification of all $p$-groups with the Maschke property. We apply these results to describe which normal partition subgroups of $P_n$ have a complement. In the end we also describe abelian subgroups of $P_n$ of largest size.https://ijgt.ui.ac.ir/article_21610_049d5dd2426c246d448583ee0a063476.pdf
