In a sequence of over 150 wartime photographs he tells the story, from the amphibious invasion of the French Riviera ??" Operation Dragoon ??" to the battle at Montelimar, the forcing of the Belfort gap, the destruction of German resistance in the Colmar pocket and the entry of Allied forces into southern Germany.
