Why did France fall to Germany?

France was bitterly divided, and Germany had better troops.

Another reason is that Britain had to evacuate their army from

France. France from the start had a weak military; although Charles

de Gaulle warned of the weakness of the French military, the

government did nothing. France did not have the support of the

French people after the declaration of war. All of France's allies

(Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Poland, Denmark, and Norway)

besides Britain were all defeated by the time of the defeat of

France.
