No, Hitler's autism saved GB. He let the Allies escape because he wanted his Anglo-Saxon 'brothers' in Great Britain to join the Axis powers.

Hitler never intended to invade or even fight Britain to begin with, he always wanted the Brits to join him in his conquest of Russia.

He sent 160,000 men to their deaths to destroy your sorry excuse for a country. Your people didn't even defend your capital city, how disgraceful.

Not sure if trolling, or just massively retarded.

Why risk more lives including civilians for a hopeless cause? The German treatment of France was shit so imagine if they fought like the Russians....

Yeah I guess you're right, I would surrender too if I was as bad at fighting wars as France is.

It's funny how the only time France was ever good at war was when they were led by a Corsican, lol.

Wait a second, why is WWI up there? France made the most sacrifice of any allied nation in that war and showed a great amount of defiance and courage. Also, when it comes to Vietnam, let's not pretend the U.S. does any better.  Also, French are kinda the reason your beloved 'Murica is a nation but I guess that's niether here nor there.

Napoleon considered himself to be French. A lot of French people would have died had it not been for them surrendering. The French honestly I believe are some of the best fighters in the world. And apparently the smartest because unlike Germany when it got invaded it didn't take sevral years to get back on its feet......Also its population was not decimated.

Well, it is true that Hitler didn't want to fight the British because he considered them to be a good Germanic ally. He also admired how the British were running India. Hitler thought the Americans more dangerous than the French, but hated the French more than the Americans because of the various wars between France and German states and because he felt France was slowly becoming non-European.


This page goes into more detail, even though I dislike Wikipedia, I find this article spot on.

The French kinda got shitted on the first half of the first world war, and would've almost definitely lost had the US not intervened.

And rofl don't compare France and the USA in Vietnam. The USA never lost a pitched battle against the NVA. We pulled out because the # of casualties was not worth the cause. France on the other hand was literally defeated by a third world army. I mean why does France even have a military if it is literally such a shitty country
