On 15 August 1944, the Allies landed in Southern France. The operation was a success, nearly cutting off an entire German Army group, which perhaps explains why it doesn't hold the same position in our history as the invasions of Normandy and Italy. Operation Dragoon was, however, the main French effort in liberating their homeland. Interestingly, because France had been occupied by 1942 and there were one and a half million French Prisoners of War in German camps, its armed forces were largely compiled of French Colonial troops. Cameron Zinsou joined James to discuss this feat of planning, a forgotten campain for the liberation of Europe.
