In Arming Against Hitler (1996), West Point professor Eugenia C. Kiesling takes a very different approach which delivers a cogent interpretation that broadens our understanding of what happened to the French Army in 1940. Kiesling is more sympathetic to the French position in the Interwar period and does a great job of putting issues in perspective, without attempting to conceal the flaws within the French Army. Overall, this book is a well-argued piece of military history that essentially argues that countries get the military that they are willing to pay for in peace, not the one they would.

The book is not an easy read, but it is worth a careful one, since it and Robert A. Doughty's The Seeds of Disaster: The Development of French Army Doctrine, 1919-1939 (Archon Books, 1985) are the only studies that deal with French military doctrine.

Grimly aware of the need to prepare for ather war with its arch enemy, French leaders created defense preparations and military doctrines in which they felt confident.
By Eugenia C. The fall of France in 1940 continues to fascinate students of warfare: how did a country rated to have the most powerful army in Europe crumble in a few weeks under the hammer blows of the Wehrmacht? Many able historians have tackled this subject, but few have done so with Kiesling's brio and shrewdness. Kiesling
In May-June 1940 the Germans demolished the French Army, inflicting more than 300,000 French casualties, including more than 120,000 dead. While many historians have focused on France's failure to avoid this catastrophe, Kiesling is the first to show why the French had good reason to trust that their prewar defense policies, military doctrine, and combat forces would preserve the nation. A superb work that will find its place as one of the indispensable books on the subject.
