In May-June 1940, the Germans demolished the French Army, inflicting more than 300,000 casualties, including more than 120,000 dead. Kiesling (military history, US Military Academy) examines the logic of French defense planning within its cultural, institutional, political, and military contexts, presenting new material about the inner workings of the French military, its relations with civilian leaders, its lack of adaptability, and its overreliance on a poorly organized, trained, and led army reserve.
