Battle of France in In the Presence of Mine EnemiesEdit
Battle of France in Joe SteeleEdit
The Battle of France resulted in France's capitulation. U.S. President Joe Steele was worried that unless he provided aid to England, she might fall leaving nothing between Germany and the USA except for the Atlantic Ocean.
During World War II, the Battle of France allowed the Germans to conquer the Low Countries and France, and effectively reduce Britain and her empire to being the only opponents in the fight against the Axis. In the aftermath, the Germans occupied the northern area of France, while France itself was divided into two factions. Free France which sided with the Allies in order to keep up the fight and one day regain the homeland, and Vichy France, which sided with the Axis.
