BRIGNOLES

With the St. Tropez beaches under control, elements of the 3rd Division rapidly advanced 35 miles to Brignoles. As in other towns and cities during
the advance, French resistance proved invaluable in securing territory.
The landings in southern France inspired major uprisings in Lyon and Paris,
liberated on August 24, 1944.
