This is a well written and very detailed account of the World War II invasion of Southern France or the operation codenamed "Anvil." The authors draw on U.S. Army archives, personal memoirs, and in some cases German sources. The invasion of Southern France was intended to draw German forces away from the Normandy theatre and for its own part this force of American and Free French Colonial forces actually displayed great strategic initiative in liberating France from Marseilles to Strasborg and represented an early strike over the Rhine River. The authors provide a real understanding of the impact of limited troop reinforcements and the difficulty of supplying an armed group of over 100,000 soldiers. Over 550 pages long, but is interesting as it includes maps for the majority of major conflicts that the U.S. Sixth Army encountered as they battled to the Rhine River. If anything, this book will provide the reader with additional areas of inquiry as the American and French forces found themselves attacking forts known as the Maginot Line and many heroes are illustrated including the famous Japanese-American 442nd Battalion and Medal of Honor Winner, Audie Murphy.
