However, I do agree with George Lerner in that Hearts of Iron II thoroughly covers every period of the war. It's not your typical strategy game either. There's no micromanagement, but rather, division-level management or even army level. I played as France and sucessfully repelled the German attack through Belgium.
What about management of air assets?
Yes, Hearts of Iron II includes various degrees of air force development, 1936-1947. You can create wings of fighters and bombers, but their strength can be diminished depending on the strength of the enemy air force or the development of their anti-air batteries in a certain province. The game does not include "terror bombing" however, but focuses more on military type air strikes such as strategic bombing and close air support.

After finally being able to acquire an older version of the TOAW I found to my surprise that it seems the Hawk 75 was not in the FAF inventory in the France '40 scenario.

I know the OP isn't looking for a shooter, but if anyone else is interested, last year Post Scriptum got a Battle of France expansion called "Plan Jaune", which looks pretty cool. Hoping that Enlisted will get one too after release.
