France did gain: Firstly, ex-colonies like Vietnam (Indo-China etc) Secondly, parts of Germany. (Germany was then divided into 4 zones and Berlin was again sub-divided into another 4 small zones. Each zone (regardless "Berlin sub-zone" or main 4 zones throughout the nation) was occupied by France, USA, Britain ,as known as :UK and USSR. Later (In 1946), USA,UK,France merged together to form West Germany , or Federal Republic of Germany because they wanted Germany to be economically strong.However, Russia (USSR) had lost about 20 million people in World War 2, definitely he (Stalin) hated Germany a lot. That's why he wanted Germany to be weak in all aspect just like France's revengeful idea after World War 1. Therefore, Stalin created the German Democratic Republic. Note: France had the smallest share of Germany occupied zone and it is located on the South-West part of the Germany. Also: "Berlin sub-zone" is mine term because this Berlin had divided into East and West Berlin where West Berlin had fully surrounded with East Berlin, East Germany. France wish to gain: Probably some cash for compensation for the war.
