Just a where abouts will suffice for the kind of missions I have been making.

I guess the sarcasm wasn't dripping enough...I was making a half hearted reference to a Simpsons episode where the Eifle Tower was the launching site of France's nukes launched against Springfield.

In this case, I took the overmodeling of the Eifle Tower into context and joking turned that overmodeling V-2 site joke in to everyone. Alas...I have failed once again to get anyone to actually laugh at the joke. Oh well http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Just make a map of 2 million people all with their arms up in surrender to the Nazi's and you'll have it!

I am very far from symathising with the French, but I cannot stand such an oversimplification.

The French were not happy when the German army marched into Paris. In fact the chronicle from that day is one of the most known examples of crying men.

France lost the war before it really begun. The war was lost in the civilian politics' cabinets where it was decided that the best defence for France would be the fortification line (the Maginot line) and that this line should not be built on the Franco-Belgian border. The whole Franch military machine, with the small units of hardly movable tanks was designed to support the defence line. When this line was lost, there was virtually nothing that could be done.

Mind you, fighting to the last soldier was not fashionable by then.

Play a board game "a World at War"
Global conflick of 2nd WW.
2-5 players. Best played as a team for faster play.
One game playing the side of russia & france.
I was arguing with the british player about defending France, Paris was the problem. The British player wanted out of France. Which is a valid complaint.
The arguing got quite nasty. What was done was abandon Paris (open city) then launch a counter attack on Paris. Turned out it was a good move fore the german time table was off so bad that
the german player quit the game.
Paris was a lucky city in WW2, it was never fought in ,bombed or gutted.

"I am very far from symathising with the French, but I cannot stand such an oversimplification"

What oversimplification, it was declared a Open City. Is the number of people wrong?
