The map is set in a small town in the southern French region of Provence, inland from the Côte d'Azur. Following the armistice in 1940, Provence became a part of Vichy France with Germany controlling the remainder of the French mainland. After a strained existence, it was formally absorbed as an Axis puppet state due to the German occupation of November 1942 in response to Allied gains in North Africa and the Mediterranean. The map is set some time between this date and the eventually liberation of the region as a result of the Franco-American amphibious landings of Operation Dragoon in August 1944. During the battle, British forces attempted to wrest control of the town away from its occupiers.
In a similar vein to other maps set to be released as part of Defying the Odds, Provence takes place in a small scale urban environment that predominately lends itself to close-quarters infantry combat.
