Item description for Dragoon by Paul Gaujac...

The preparation of the Provence landing in August 1944 was so precise that, against all odds, everything went exactly as scheduled. Therefore, this book emphasizes on the military planning involving all the units and equipments used. The second part of the book deals with the landing operations themselves and the first three days of fighting in Provence, by US troops, up to the arrival of the French 1st Army.

The second largest US landing operation in France has never received such a detailed coverage, both in preparation and in execution. An hour-by-hour account of the fighting by US troops. More than 60 color profiles of aircraft and landing crafts and ships.

Reviews - What do customers think about Dragoon?

Great book on the Invasion of Southern France!  Oct 6, 2007
There is so little written in my estimation regarding the invasion of southern France, so this book was a real gift. Not only is the book filled with top-notch photos and maps, but is very well detailed.

I discovered the availability of this book while doing a Google search on my father's unit, the 540th Engineers, and was so surprised to find one that dealt with "my VI Corps Engineers". Very few books cover the amphibious engineers, and very few cover them this comprehensively.

I am sure this book will be a valuable tool as I write my book on the 36th, 39th, 540th and 1108th Engineers. Several of "my vets" saw the book at our latest reunion in 2007, and wanted to know how and where they could purchase one. They were certainly impressed with the content.

Many thanks to the author. I am sure this book will remain one of the favorites in my ETO collection. Two-thumbs up!!

Dragoon  Feb 7, 2007
Ijust loved the book. It was very interesting to view. My Dad was in the 36th infantry division that landed on southern France.
A very informative read.  Mar 7, 2006
The author gives a lot of information about the "other" invasion of France in WWII which heretofore has received scant attention. An enjoyable read and well researched, the author details unit-by-unit information for each of the participants and the roles they played before and during the invasion. Also a wealth of photographs adds to the value of this book. I highly recommend it.
