Vichy France was the small puppet state that Germany set up to get France to think they were free. However, this plan back fired as the people of Vichy France rebelled against Germany in France and Africa. After D-Day all forces joined up with US and British Armies to defeat Hitler. Until D-Day though they did not have a big impact in France and barely managed to keep Africa From Germany and Italy until US and British Forces Arrived.
