What would you do, if the French declare war to you.
he French declared war for very good reason - to protect Poland.
Some learned the lessons as Patton and Zhukov, some didn´t as Maxwell Taylor.
In comparison the UNO made action in the Kosovo after around 700thousend people escaped to Albania.
This was demonstrated by the last ditch resistence on the Somme on June 5-8th, the only time the French fought effectively, when their interior was being invaded.
Another factor was that there were 400,000 French troops in the Maginot Line. Their only contribution to the campaign was to surrender en masse on June 22nd, a surrender largely overlooked by the historians.
