Invasion of Southern France!

I always thought that the First Special Service Force (FSSF) was used in Italy and was then stood down and its troops returned to other units.  Turns out that wasn't true.  The Allies launched an invasion into the South of France to stop the Germans from being able reinforce Normandy and the FSSF was used in the landing preparations.
