The August 1944 Allied Invasion of Southern France - Second only in scope to the Normandy Invasion, 'Operation Dragoon' (aka Anvil) is the little known controversial Allied invasion of the French Mediterranean coast. Initially planned to coincide with D-Day, Operation Dragoon bogged down between American and British hierarchy.

In the end, the joint Seventh U.S. Army and British troops annihilated Hitler's 19th Army, captured over 100,000 German soldiers, and liberated two-thirds of France in just 30 days. The video provides original footage with superb naration.
