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.
