  • It is a unique place in the southeast of the France because he honours the Allied landing on August 15, 1944, called "operation Anvil-Dragoon". A wall of the missing includes the name of 294 Americans whose bodies were never found or identified. Supported on the wall of the missing, a gigantic sculpture "Angel of peace" watch over the chapel which houses splendid mosaics. An impressive bronze embossed card tells the military operations.

  • We were fortunate that the head of the place, Dwight "Andy" Andersson, came up to us and asked if he was going to show us around a little on the spot. He showed and told us many exciting stories. He told a story that hit all the right in the heart and gave wet eyes, about young love, which was torn apart by the war. The place is very well maintained and has many exciting stories about a little "forgotten" invasion of southern France. Thank you so much for the "Andy" for an excellent tour and not least to the "boys", which gave the best that we can give, for we are someone else's freedom-thank you.

  • Provocative reflection. Neat and nicely decorated. Recommend. Even the young made an impression. Are shaded benches. So you can and relax.

  • We (five American women) drove by this cemetery by chance driving to Draguignan to a farmer's market in 2002.. we were taken by the vastness of it and stopped to visit. It was beautifully maintained.I took many photos of individual American graves and of the beautiful monument in the center. This cemetery is compelling and I could have spent all day....
  • Very Beautiful Cemetery. A Wonderful Monument to the Brave Warriors from the United States who gave their lives to help free Europe in WW2
  • Beautifully maintained and very moving. There is a strong complement of Jewish graves with Stars of David. Two very helpful curators from the US war graves commission who will explain the history.
  • Very well kept. Very interesting.
