Best Answer

Not many. The French caved pretty quickly, once the Germans got past the Maginot Line by going through Belgium and through the Ardennes Forest. Answer: Invasion of Normandy? In 1944, the single largest invasion in military history ever before and ever since. How about the air battles over France? What of the guerrilla warfare by the French Resistance? And you can't forget the Bulge in the winter of '44-'45.
