Because France had put up virtually no defenses along the Belgo-Luxembourg border (because Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg had declared their neutrality) the Germans simply "walked around" the massive defenses that the French had put up on the Franco-German border.

They were on the side of the allies, but they played a very minor role in the war. Will C. Luxembourg was allied with France, Great Britain and other western European nations prior to World War 2. The German invasion of France went through Luxembourg, as well as the other more well known victim countries. Luxembourg had a government in exile during the remainder of World War 2, as did the other countries Germany had conquered. Walter M. Clark
