Tucker-Jones. The D-Day invasion in June of 1944 deserves the widespread acclaim and historical attention it has received; however, there was also a southern advance shortly thereafter that has often been neglected in the account of the final year of the war — Operation Dragoon. This illustrated book takes readers through the tough-fought campaign from the French Riviera to the Battle at Montelimar and the forcing of the Belfort Gap. A valuable visual record of events and equipment, this guide includes insight into tanks, guns, jeeps, and trucks used during the mission. 160 pages, 175 B&W photos, 7½"x 9½", softcover.
