Savoy is a cultural region in Western Europe. It comprises roughly the territory of the Western Alps between Lake Geneva in the north and Dauphiné in the south. The historical land of Savoy emerged as the feudal territory of the House of Savoy during the 11th to 14th centuries. The historical territory is shared among the modern countries of France, Italy, and Switzerland.
Savoy 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.
