The First Airborne Task Force has its origins in the grouping of all airborne elements available in the Mediterranean theater of operations (MTO) in February 1944, providing for a landing in Southern France. Created in July 1944, the unit is under General Robert T. Frederick’ command. On August 15, 1944, its elements must be dropped around the village of Le Muy and support the landing from the inland, the beaches of Delta and Camel Beach in the cities of St. Maxime and St. Raphael.
