On August 15, 1944, Operation ‘Dragoon’ was launched in Provence. Three American divisions sailing from Naples landed between Cavalaire and Saint-Raphaël. They were followed from Corsica, Taranto and Oran by four French divisions, who captured the cities and ports of Toulon and Marseilles after tough fighting. Then Americans and French rushed north, chasing the Germans, and liberated Lyons seventy days ahead of schedule. This adventure, with its long and meticulous planning, the incertitudes, the amphibious forces, the role played by Corsica, the German defenses, the Resistance fighters, the commandos, the airborne troops, the convoys and the assaults on the beaches, the capture of beachheads, ports, etc., is detailed here. This highly-documented study is illustrated with 50 maps and 700 photographs, mostly unpublished.
