Abstract:

The 3rd Infantry Division reinforced with numerous armor, chemical, medical, and ordnance units, was to land in the vicinity of St. Tropez and Cavalaire, Southern France; clear the enemy from the high ground, move rapidly inland and prepare to assist Seventh Army's attack against the ports of Toulon and Marseille. Even though the Normandy landings had been conducted two months previously, and the Naval buildup in the Naples area, the Germans were taken completely by surprise. This was the first daylight landing, and by noon, almost all the division's rapid advance through Southern France, makes this a classic in the history of amphibious operations.
