« back to classes page
The Fall of France to the Nazi invasion in the late spring of 1940 is a crucial pivot point in history with profound world-wide implications. This presentation will examine the pattern established by previous French-German wars, the state of French and German societies at the beginning of World War II, how the Germans quickly overran the British and French forces, and how deep unresolved divisions in French society led to the creation of the collaborationist Vichy regime. Finally we will catalogue how the Fall of France profoundly changed how the French, British, Germans, and Americans viewed their identities and respective roles in history.
