      The Fulda Gap was just one of the possible invasion routes and not even the most likely one, moron.

                Shitposting aside, France was just not prepared regardless the state of its empire. It's a lesson to remind everyone that the government, sometimes, should listen to the military. In this case the gvt was reaaaaaly naive. That said the Maginot Line was the last unit to give up the fight (and that one cadet school I don't remember).

                Nta but losing Algeria and the rest of the empire happened years after WW2, what are you talking about?
                And if you want to mention a defensive battle by the French then Dien Bien Phu is more recent, and probably a better example than Fall Gelb (but with equally questionable decisions by the French high command). Or you could talk about the French Battalion in the Korean war, Ridgway was quite happy with them.

                I mean, it wasn't rocket surgery to figure that France would be having a hell of a time rebuilding its homeland
                losing the empire is a symptom of its weakness I guess, but it reinforced the point I guess
                I mean, part of the reason why they lost Indochina is because they didn't have enough automatic weapons, artillery and air assets, and they didn't have that stuff because they were poor

                I'm not disputing the impact that having the Western front of WW1 fought on their soil had on their strategy in WW2, my point was that you got the timeline wrong concerning the breaking of their colonial empire.

                they could have changed them of course, but by the end of WW2 I'm guessing they knew exactly how weak they were

        Britain still had an enormous empire, a vast navy and soon tested its own nuclear weapons (since the US had reneged on the agreement to share the technology). British aircraft were also the most advanced in the world post-war (now that the Germans were out of the picture).

      This; or at least, it was what his underlings wanted. The Brits wanted to occupy the territory closest to the Low Countries so that if the occupation of Germany went poorly, they'd have an easy escape route handy. They also under no conditions wanted to have anything to do with occupying France, which was expected to be an absolute basket case.

      The terrible thing is, this meant that the Brits wound up dealing with the sector best-suited for mobile, mechanized warfare. This made life harder on everybody in 1944 (imagine the 3rd Army breaking out from Caen), and probably resulted in far higher Allied casualties. And then after the war, the Brits were suddenly stuck with the hardest sector to defend against the Red Army while the US got arguably the easiest, when it really should have been the other way around, given the importance of keeping the ports open for supplies and reinforcements from the US.

      And the escape route that they had messed things up so badly for? It was never even a serious option once Stalin stabbed everybody in the back.

        This is all rather moot considering that it was the Dutch and FRG's I corps who had the most difficult tasking area and the FRG's II corps had the easiest since the Czechs had no intention of ever pushing due to horrible terrain conditions. The Brits got into quite a few spats with the Germans throughout the 70s when they would essentially argue that they should be a literal army of the Rhine.

      Poland also got parts of Germany, good parts in fact. They lost some land but it was mostly undeveloped rural forests and swamps full of Lithuanians and Ukrainians. They effectively got their own ethnostate with developed regions and they didn’t even have to deal with a large Russian enclave moving in, just paying tribute to Moscow for a bit of autonomy.

      I’ve literally never heard of poles hating France. I’m sure it exists, statistically it has to, but it’s really not a widespread phenomenon. It’s not France’s fault that Poland is so close to Russia.

      But the HRE was where Protestantism started, you moron.

      Anything European between 1492 and 1914 is rarely touched upon in regular American history classes beyond a vague mention. The most touched on are the Renaissance, the Enlightenment, origins of the Industrial Revolution with the printing press, Martin Luther, some elements of British history (Tudors, Union of the Crowns, English Civil War, Puritans) and the start of the Age of Exploration to avoid the Ottomans, followed by a two hundred year jump to the French Revolution and Napoleon. Mainland European history in the Early Modern Era up until WW1 is for the most part its own course, which is an elective. Everything that is touched on is mostly just a vessel to talk about its impact on US history rather than to learn about the events themselves. The Protestant Reformation is glossed over aside from 'it happened and there were wars because of it'.
