15 August 1944

During the afternoon of the 14th, the "hot information" on the big push came down through channels. "H" Hour of "D" Day was to be the break of dawn the morning of 15 August. The invasion was to be aimed at the southern coast of France. Missions of the Fifteenth Air Force in the support of the invasion were four in number: (1) To cause maximum destruction to enemy coast and beach defenses within the assault area; (2) To isolate the battlefield by destruction of remaining rail and road bridges across the Rhone River up to its junction with the Iser River as well as those across the Iser and Durance Rivers; (3) To block defiles and rail lines running through the Alps from Iser River Southward; and (4) To drop propaganda leaflets from the water's edge to about 30 miles inland.
