May 1940 German attack on France

Post by South » 11 Apr 2019 20:41 ... r-ii-52047

Good afternoon all,

Per ...

The phrase regarding France "embarked on a major modernization drive" has multiple meanings. The quoted expression depends on defining "modernization".

Note the name of LTC Balck's memoir: "Order in Chaos".

I found the follow-on comment by a Mark Thomason interesting but know too little about this aspect of WWII.
