Provence is a geographical region and historical province of southeastern France, which extends from the left bank of the lower Rhône River to the west to the Italian border to the east, and is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea to the south. It largely corresponds with the modern administrative région of Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, and includes the départements of Var, Bouches-du-Rhône, Alpes-de-Haute-Provence and parts of Alpes-Maritimes and Vaucluse. The largest city of the region is Marseille.

Provence in The Hot WarEdit

During World War III, as the Red Army overran northern Italy, the U.S. realized that the Soviets were targeting southern France for invasion. In response, the U.S. military scattered troops throughout Savoy and Provence.[1]
