(p.337) 10 Girding for War
France and the Nazi Menace


Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses how France was girding for war by early 1939 to defeat an Axis coalition. This war gave priority to securing the frontier of France with Germany while at the same time waging economic warfare and forcing Germany and Italy to fight on several fronts. This was consistent with the basic principles on which French military planning had been based throughout the 1930s.
