Les Glières parachuting

It was here, on the eve of August 1, 1944, that men from the AS  (Secret Army) and F.T.P. gathered to witness a massive parachute drop of arms and ammunition onto the Plateau des Glières.This parachute drop enabled the Resistance to liberate the département on its own, under the motto “Vivre libre ou mourrir” (“Live free or die”).
