OK I need at least 10 reasons why the Germans were able to defeat France so easily in WW2 for an assignment worth a crap ton of marks.

PLEASE HELP!

germanys military was way stronger, germanys leadership was way stronger, france had internal conflicts, other european countries hesitated to help france... id check wikipedia
#7
strong military, element of surprise, Blitzkrieg, French suck at fighting, maginot line wasn't effective for sh*t, Hitler used PCP on his soldiers, no help for france.

I know you have numerous resources provided to you by your teacher that would be much more helpful than any of us.

And speaking of resources, you're on the internet for christ's sake.

Do you mean just short term stuff - or in the long term? Because you should include some earlier stuff to do with appeasement, the Sudetenland and the Reoccupation of the Rhineland, saying how it aided the Nazis, and made the German army stronger, better supplied etc.

Germany was way stronger anyways. France had a supposedly "unbreakable" line of protection, which the Germans broke by simply going around it. That left France open to attack. And Hitler stunned the French with mustache power.
