Good afternoon all,
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.
