    France will never recover its former glory. They are a nation in decline and this is evident when the Nazi's walked in to Paris almost without opposition. For anyone who wants to understand how the French let the Nazis in please read the book "Strange Defeat" by Marc Bloch.

    It's pretty obvious how they let the Nazis in. They were more concerned with the preservation of material objects than they were with the preservation of their freedom.

    They didn't want their pretty cities destroyed, so they surrendered.

    So long as the Arc de Triomphe remains standing, who care who walks through it. I'm sure Napoleon would have been proud to see his monument, which portrays nude French youth valiantly battling armoured Germans, so willingly and ironically profaned by French appeasement and columns of Nazi soldiers.
