2014 French Navy International Fleet Review:
On August 15th 2014, the French Navy (Marine Nationale) organizes an International Fleet review between Cannes and Toulon to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the allied landing in Provence.

Operation Dragoon
On the morning of August 15, 1944, between Cavalaire and Saint-Raphaël, begins the Operation Dragoon, codename of the allied landing in Provence. On August 15, shortly after midnight, Colonel Walker’s “First Special Service Force” neutralizes the batteries on Hyères islands, while African commandos, led by Colonel Bouvet, reach the coast near the Cap Negre and overtake it. Commander Seriot’s Naval Assault Group, arrived at the tip of Esquillon near Theoule sur Mer, faces the minefield in Trayas and fights hard. The landing caused the German Army Group G to abandon southern France and to retreat to the Vosges Mountains. Operation Dragon was a large and complex military operation with a well-executed naval, amphibious and airborne component.
