AIX-EN-PROVENCE

An M101 105 mm howitzer of the 441st Field Artillery Battalion near Aix-en-Provence. Over 10,000 M-101 howitzers were produced through 1953. As the action around Marseille wrapped up on August 22, VI Corps assessed its move to the Rhone River.
A forward unit called Task Force Butler with supporting artillery had already engaged the Germans north of Montelimar on Highway 7.
