This is a 16 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on World War II - European Theater - Operation Dragoon. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
Operation Dragoon was the Allied invasion of southern France during World War II. The invasion was initiated via a parachute drop by the 1st Airborne Task Force, followed by an amphibious assault by elements of the United States 7th Army, followed a day later by a force made up primarily of the French First Army.
The landing caused the German Army Group G to abandon southern France and to retreat under constant Allied attacks to the Vosges Mountains. Despite being a large and complex military operation with a well-executed amphibious and airborne component, Operation Dragoon is not well known as it was overshadowed by the earlier and larger Operation Overlord, the invasion of Normandy 2 months earlier.
The presentation covers the following:
Eisenhower Stands Firm
Plan Set in Place
Hitting the Beaches
Task Force Butler
Escape to the Vosges Mountains
Casualties & Aftermath
