How Did It Happen?

I can't get it off my mind since I read it.

I'm referring to the year of 1940 when 1.8 million French troops surrendered to panzer forces almost without firing a shot and over 1 million of these troops were then enslaved in forced labor in Germany for the next four years.

I read there was a collapse of French troop morale and the generals were confused by the politicians.

I cannot understand the leadership climate and political environment that caused this almost voluntary march of troops and their officers into slavery.

Have a good week!
