"HURRDURR FRENCH COWARDS HURR DURR WHITE IS NATIONAL FLAG HURRDURR" haha yea because **** you thats not old as **** .

The french werent the only country to surrender, and considering they were already pinned down it would have been pointless to just kill off 500 000 soldiers trying to take it back and lose.

seems like nobody remembers all the things Napoleon did or how the french helped out america in the revolutionary war.

Like holy **** , its a joke from 1945 for ***** sake.
User avatar #70 to #1 - hydraetis (12/09/2013) [-]
Because it's much better that they drag out the fight and get the rest of their cities destroyed and thus millions more of their own people killed. I actually respect them for having the intelligence to surrender, rather than being brash idiots looking for a false sense of glory.
#204 to #70 - therealsupanova (12/09/2013) [-]
why are you ignoring the fact that surrender meant essentially handing over every french Jew for the Nazi's to exterminate? How can you condone a government betraying its own people so wholeheartedly

The got their reputation by surrendering in WW II so fast but they already surrendered in after 10 months in the Franco-Prussian war from 1870 to 1871
User avatar #79 to #10 - ruebezahl ONLINE (12/09/2013) [-]
Yes, because the other European countries did soooo extremely well during WW2. Except for the Soviet Union, the only countries that did not surrender immediately against Germany all had the benefit of being separated from Germany by the sea.

And look at those nordic countries for example. Some of them surrendered at the mere sight of the first German panzer.
User avatar #160 to #79 - chrisel (12/09/2013) [-]
France had pretty good army and had time to prepare and wasn't outnumbered as much as the other nations did and surrendered relatively fast compared to the smaller nations. Norway surrendered 62 days after declaration of war, they made smart use of the climate.
Denmark knew a war would only cause hostility from Germans to the danish population and evacuated a lot of Jews to help the allies and still make the Germans ''like'' Denmark
the Netherlands surrendered after only 5 days because the German air force bombed Rotterdam after it surrendered and threatened to bomb the other cities if the dutch army didn't surrendered but some allied troops kept fighting in the province of Zealand 2 days longer
Belgium surrendered in 14 days because everything was occupied.
Luxembourg surrendered nearly immediately because they barely had an army.
Poland surrendered after 35 days but they were invaded from 2 sides.
Greece surrendered after 24 days but their army was already damaged from an earlier invasion.
And France surrendered after only 33 days and has lost over 2 million soldiers.
so I think that France could have done better in WW II event though it didn't do it that bad.
#128 to #1 - feupy (12/09/2013) [-]
Doesn't this get old ?
French weren't forced to surrender indeed, they had to "choose" between
- you fight, we obviously beat you, decimate your people, smash your buildings and your art, and we take the remaining Jews
- you surrender, we take the Jews.
And they surrendered. Silly pussies eh ?

I'm not really mad, and even less proud of what happened. But it is simply inaccurate to say they weren't forced to surrender. It's a terrible thing to say, but when you're at the head of a government, you sometimes have to take the less worse decision, even if it is a bad decision.

Seriously, it's just a joke.    
   
If you want to discuss real history, the French people were the best at sabotaging German defenses. Half the bridges blown up in WW2 in France were due to the French, not the Germans. They fought even against terrible odds, and probably had the strongest backbone in the world to fight the Nazi's like that.

well, you say that, but it wasn't actually Charles De Gaulle who signed France over to the Nazi's. it was a man called Petain, and without going into too much detail about the history of it, Petain could be described as worse than some of the Nazi officers that over saw the take over of Paris
#55 to #17 - bann (12/09/2013) [-]
Or the man who saved Paris and most of France from being smashed to a pulp and inevitably surrendering anyways.
#170 to #55 - anon (12/09/2013) [-]
Vichy France of Pétain was a terrible place to be, with militias hunting every possible jew, resistant or whatever they wanted to kill. There where great poverty because every remaining French worker was sent to Germany to work in factories ... There were no resource, no industry, because everything was took by the Nazis ...

Pétain was a dictator, and the worst thing that could happen to France in its entire history. That's a fact, not an opinion.

Honestly, France got what they deserved. At the end of WW1 they just made it their goal to humiliate Germany and make them pay as much as possible. Not that any country should get off scott free after starting a war, but there's no reason to add insult to injury. Look at how we treated Japan. They were a thousand times worse than the Germans, but we still didn't make it our goal to humiliate them. We took away their ability to start wars, rebuilt their country, put them on a path to prosperity and both sides come out ahead. France was like the kid who never wins at games, so he's got to be a complete asshole about it when he finally does.

"After they started a war" WW1 was started by Serbian separatists funded by the British with the express intent to start a war in Europe knowing full well it was the only way to get rid of the German and Russian branch of the royal family.
#91 to #58 - conroyjonez (12/09/2013) [-]
Russia was on the allies side, how do you figure that Britain was attempting to get rid of Tsar Nicholas by starting a war with him as an ally. It was more like centuries of greedy colonialism by Britain and France that led to World War 1. It was an inevitable outcome, the world ran out of colinizable land, meaning a war between the great colonial powers had to happen at some point.

the entirety of europe put the receipt for the first world war on germany. It was france alone, it was the entire league of nations.

And logically, too, germany really only wanted to join in on the war because hey they had an army and the **** head wanted to have fun with it. Germany was still being pissy about Lorraine and Alsace being French and threw all his army at France because of a little territory dispute. Germany is as much to blame for WWI

Also France participated in germany's reconstruction post WWII

And Pearl Harbor and just about everything else they did during wartime...
User avatar #108 to #74 - skilgannon (12/09/2013) [-]
Their attacks on Pearl Harbor had ,at least, some military sense, in that they were engaging enemy forces, rather than civilians primarily. That's simply orders. What those responsible for the Rape of Nanking did.. there's no penalty extreme enough for those that took part in that. If there wasn't a special place in Hell for something that bad, I hope a place was created just for it.

As for "thousand times worse" or even just "worse".. there's no scope for that. Numbers alone would suggest the Germans were far, far worse, but you can't measure tragedy and sheer inhumanity. Both what the Nazis did, and what the Japanese did were just evil, there's no party there "innocent".
User avatar #233 to #108 - yuukoku (12/09/2013) [-]
Well, you could measure it by the raping and the killing. I mean, you're right that you can't measure how good or evil a nation is, but you can measure how many people they killed.
#210 to #108 - anon (12/09/2013) [-]
and even when facing such an enemy we allied did a lot of bad things too, especially during the final years, bombing of german/japanese civilians, torture, concetrarion camps too (not for killing though) and the A-bombs.

World War II could probably have been completely avoided if it weren't for the way the European allied countries treated Germany at the end of World War I, so this is all pretty fitting.

No, but the way they were treated after WWI created the conditions which allowed Hitler to rise to power. Germany was in a bad way after WWI, and they needed something to lift them back up. To the German people, the Nazi Party seemed to be that savior.
User avatar #25 to #13 - letting (12/09/2013) [-]
The Germans were always a violent people, dating back far before WWI and WWII, the Germanic tribes have showed periods of intense violence and pillaging of neighboring European countries for thousands of years. Now, all countries have their dark pasts, but Germany's is especially brutal, with things like torture, rape, etc, being extremely common place, even backstabbing peaceful colonies because they wanted their land.

Fast forward to WWII and you have a ******* psychopath, born Austrian, but manages to rise through the ranks in German politics and eventually convincing an entire people to hate and exterminate another entire group of people for no goddamn reason. Did you know, that Adolf Hitler was so ******* off his rocker that he would preach that the Jews were the reason Germany lost WWI, that they somehow betrayed the German people and caused them to lost the war?

And during all of this time, the German people stood by and millions of people were exterminated in their own backyards, and no only that, but making every effort to hide it from the allied forces that began to close in once Germany started to fall.

There actually are stories of allied soldiers forcing local inhabitants next to concentration camps, to dig the mass graves for the Jews, after being questioned for evidence of war crimes, they uttered phrases such as, in so many words "Those pigs deserved it!" or "I had no idea, who cares anyway?" That's not the evidence of being afraid of your leader or his soldiers, many German people genuinely didn't give a **** that the Jews were being exterminated.

So, TL;DR, don't ******* tell me that the way Germany was treated after WWI was a good reason for how they behaved. That country has had far too many chances in its existence. In my opinion, we should've nuked the **** out of it after the war ended and that technology became available. Or at the very least, dissolved it into the surrounding countries, it doesn't even deserve to retain its name

1. The Germans were violent people, but so was the Britons, the Gauls, the Spaniards, the Carthaginians, the Russians, the Americans (Abu Ghraib for instance) even the Greeks were violent (pillage of Troy among others). All nations has had its dark past, including Germany. Torture and rape was very commonplace in all countries which has had a past. It's just something that happens in war, were someone have to much power on their hands.

2. Yes, I knew they thought that. They thought the Jews had undermined their operations etc. and sold them out to the Allies for instance. This wasn't particularly unusual at the time. Anti-semetism was extreme in pre-WW2 years, although the Nazis took it to a new level.

3. Most death camps were in Poland and the Czech republic. Most Germans didn't know about the Holocaust during the war, but they had strong suspicions. Anyhow, what were they going to do? They had already been imprisoned, they were in a war, they couldn't just overthrow their government when they were seeking vengeance for WW1 (among others).

4. Well, I'm sure there are stories of that. I've also heard stories, and seen it in movies, Germans who are forced to help clean up (many did that), and they are appalled of what they have done, and reacts with disbelief.

5. They didn't behave particularly different to other countries. Remember many other big nations at the time had had concentration camps, it's just the scale in Germany that was so big - and the people in it so concentrated on ethnicity. Besides of the concentration camps they didn't behave any worse than anyone else. They did some horrible things on the east front, with rapes etcetera - but don't think the Soviets didn't do the same on the counter.

They did merge it with several countries, namely France, USA, Britain and the Soviet Union. After WW2 Germany seized to exist for a while, until the sectors were unified - and the complete reunification in '90.

Blaming the Serbs is rather silly. As silly as blaming Poles for WW2. Yes they essentially started the world war, but nations were preparing for confrontation for a very long time and it was unavoidable. Serbian terrorists(yes I will call them that) were just fire which started up the war machine.
User avatar #241 to #133 - strikingeight (12/09/2013) [-]
No, the Pollocks didn't do very much to aggravate the Germans, apart from owning Gdansk, and having a lot of Jews. The Serbs killed the Austrian Prince, Ferdinand, causing the Austrians to force the Serbian government to remove terrorist organizations within its borders, suppress anti-Austrian propaganda and accept an independent investigation by the Austro-Hungarian government into Franz Ferdinand's assassination, or face war. Serbia called on Russia for help, Austria called on Germany for help, and Austria invaded Serbia when it heard that the Russians were mobilizing.
#243 to #241 - captainp (12/10/2013) [-]
Poles actually did. Believe it or not world thought that Germans have no chance against Poland. Poles in Danzig corridor were attacking German villagers there, because they thought Germany soon will be defeated and all germans will be removed from polish premises. It was one of many reasons why Hitler decided that Poland is first(and used it as war propaganda).
Like I said world was preparing for confrontation for a very long time. Serbs didn't change anything aside from starting the damn thing. Austria wasn't a major player too. They were puppet in German hands thanks to Bismarck shenanigans from years ago already.
User avatar #244 to #243 - strikingeight (12/10/2013) [-]
(Had no idea about that, thanks) I very much doubt that people believed that Hitlers Wehrmacht would lose to Polish troops that were stuck in the 17th century. You just said blaming them for causing WWII is silly, and here you are saying that they started it. Austria may not have been a very good fighter, but they did pull in Germany, which brought in France, England, and America.
#246 to #244 - captainp (12/11/2013) [-]
Austria calling Germany for help was all in Germany plans. Countries don't get pulled into a war just because someone is asking them(yes in defensive wars too. England jumped in because they didn't want Germany to be super power after French defeat). Everything is calculated and there's always something to gain for the participants. If not they are just not interested.
So to sum it up: WWI would happen one way or another. Germany didn't prepare for war just to sit there and do nothing. They were interested in conquest. It could be started by anyone and Germany would hop in. They were largely interested in territorial gain, establishing colonial empire and upping up their prestige to British Empire level.

They wanted to attack France, joining in because Austria asking them too would get Russia involved, which would get France and England involved. Germany was preparing to attack France, not the other nations.

Well, that's rather silly of you to call them. It was basically just one guy that flipped **** and killed Ferdinand. The Austrians then gave the Serbs the ultimatum that they knew the Serbs couldn't accept. They knew they would be starting a war. It was the Austrians all along.

Getting bunch of land in 19th century wasn't the same as grabbing it in 15th. It had much more value and people on that land were actually were feeling like they belong to the country that it controlled. You know something called national conscious. That was something new and unknown to most of people in previous centuries.

If only SOMEONE came up with a fair plan that didn't **** over the losing nations of WWI! If only SOMEONE had an idea for...a LEAGUE OF NATIONS that could prevent this from happening again!

Woodrow Wilson and the Fourteen Points of Peace, FYI. He only won the ******* Nobel Peace Prize, but I suppose that honestly doesn't mean that much, considering Obama won it also for doing jack **** .

That's exactly my point. If the European Allies had just gone along with the League of Nations idea, the conditions may never have come up to allow Adolf Hitler to rise to power.

The French were scared ******** . Two devastating wars with the Germans in less than fifty years! (1872 and WW1). France wanted to **** up Germany so much that they would become a developing nation, it was the other two who lowered what was ultimately demanded. Britain agreed with France to some extent, while The US wanted it to be no penalty for Germany. However, the US ultimately budged so that they could achieve their goal of establishing nation-states throughout Europe.

The League of Nations had zero power, and even less legitimacy. The US didn't even participate in it's own suggestion! The only thing they ever achieved was getting some food to the Ukrainian Famine.

You're right though, if the LoNs idea had been followed some of the basis of Hitlers power and breakthrough would've been taken away. However, the most essential factor would've still been there. Namely the great depression.

American are ignorant brainwashed assholes. Main battles of WW1 were won by the French. Verdun 1916 is considered as the greatest battle ever by historians with 700000 casualties in 10 months. The French lost 100000 killed in May / June 1940 in 6 weeks , and inflicted 45000 death and 111000 wounded to Germans. They shot down 1428 German planes and damaged a further of 688. Everybody was crushed by German blietzkrieg at the beginning of this war,included Russians who lost 5 million prisoners when Sovet union was crushed in 1941/42. US troops would have been crushed like others in 1940. US army was a joke at this time. France experienced 1500 years of wars and was the dominant power in Europe for centuries, when USA were still a virgin land populated by cactus and Native Americans. Open true history books, not antiFrench google craps on you tube. American will be able to talk about wars, when they will experience one in their noman's land of history. Really pathetic. I think you're just jealous of having no military history set apart at the beginning of last century and don't have a cultural history than europe so you try to console yourself with dirty wars in the Middle East on poor people of military and financial means but the French are cowards!

America: Joins in two wars that were going badly into massive victories.
Yeah, there's a chance either of them could have gone the way they did anyways, but not a very good chance. And the ************* from the WW1 allies are the whole reason WW2 happened. Had they gone with America's plan for the peace treaty, it wouldn't have happened. Well, Japan and maybe Italy would have gone to war, but would have been quickly crushed. Europeans wanted to punish Germany, and then they saw how badly they ****** up doing that.

Also, FYI, the Russians weren't there to liberate Europe, remember what happened to European countries the Russians got too... yeah... It's thanks to the US, that we were able to hold back the "Red Bear" after WW2. I can promise you, the Soviets probably would have continued West given the chance, because a battered UK force couldn't stop them after what they've been through, and France would have probably just surrendered again.

oh they would have continued all the way to spain then glare over the ovean at usa the evil coapitalist, for sure.....its mostly that usa jumped in and said "hey josef, i have nukes" that stopped the russians

in saying that, americas part in the war was only a tiny bit to help france and england but mostly to ward off the angry bear from attacking france and england
User avatar #190 to #115 - averagemcgee (12/09/2013) [-]
Ah yes, because as everyone knows, WW2 was fought mostly in Europe. It's not like there was an entire other theater in which millions were dying, being fought by another axis force just a brutal, if not more brutal, than the Nazis.

It always seems that Europeans forget that WW2 wasn't just about Europe. I'd like to try and see the Russians take out both the Nazis and the Japanese. If it wasn't for the US help in the Pacific, the only other force that could stand against the Japanese military, believe me, WW2 would have went an entire different way.

The thing is, if France was such a fantastic military power then how did you fall to Germany faster then Poland? Who had no tanks, air force, and still used cavalry.

I'll agree with WW1, that was a very tough fought war and without the french it would have been lost. But at the same time, by the time America came into the war everyone was tired, the troops were worn out, and supplies were strained. America brought the fresh troops, supplies, and morale that the allies needed to win. So although America didn't exactly win WW1 singlehanded, they are a big reason as to why the war ended much quicker then it would have.

When it comes to WW2, I don't know why people think America did nothing. They almost single handedly kicked Rommel out of North Africa (although some of the remnants of the British divisions were still around helping) and led the spearhead at Italy that toppled Mussolini, Hitlers biggest Ally in Europe. Then they led the single largest beach invasion in the history of man with Canada, Britain and other allies by their side. And they did all of this while fighting another, possibly more brutal war, in the Pacific. Very few nations could have pulled something off like that.

I'm not saying the America is the greatest country and deserves all the credit, but you can never say that they did nothing and the Europe would have been totally fine without them helping.

Americans kicked Rommel out of North Africa?

Nope. The British did with help from the Free French and eventually America . The Americans were only just getting to grips with warfare, well, with tanks in the desert anyway. Rommel laughed them and their weak ass tanks off the battlefield for the first few months. America went in there, with all their training, thinking it would be a cake walk and got slaughtered. Of course Patton & the Americans eventually got their **** together but once again, they're late to the party and then try and take all the credit. For shame

Then what happend in World War II? That's right, you got your asses kicked and was asking us for help. I know that Britain was holding their own except they were asking the United States for help as well for providing Naval Destroyers and whatever weaponry they could provide. The United States was trying to stay neutral as long as they can but thanks to the Japanese, we got involved and had to free the **** out have of you. On June 6, 1994, we landed on the beaches of Omaha beaches which was heavily fortified but we managed to break through and began to liberate Nazi-occupied countries. Which one needed to be liberated badly? That' right, France. You know, you may give off some very good points but after WWII, they have been going down the ******* with military tactics. You barely did a damn thing after we liberated you guys! Russia started the Eastern Front which helped out the Western Front and they were the one who marched inside Berlin and overthrew the Fascist Reich. They ended the 2nd World War in Europe while we dropped Little Boy and Fat Man (Atom Bombs) on Japan, ending the war. Bombing them was our last option; 1. Invade (would have cost us lives. 2. Sign a treaty (The Emperor said no and if he says no, the civilians say no as well. 3. We bomb them...We chose the last option because we had no choice and Russia was already looking at invading Japan too once done with Europe. So France may have been a powerful country, but now anymore.
#164 to #101 - anon (12/09/2013) [-]
'Russia started the Eastern Front which helped out the Western Front' WRONG

The Soviets, facing a ferocious enemy on their own territory, asked for the help from the Allied forces. After the turning point of the Battle of Stalingrad in 1942, the Red Army reconquered the territories which were lost during the previous fights. However, the situation remained extremely difficult for the soviet troops. Stalin wanted to meet the Allied leaders in order to take essential military decisions as soon as possible.
Thus began the planning of Operation Overlord.

lol butthurt much? America is the most powerful military force ever to have existed on the planet. You can talk **** about how we came in late in the first world war (the biggest ******* stalemate on the planet until we showed up), but we saved your asses then and we saved your asses again. Like many modern French, your angst comes from cultural overshadowing in modern times. Nobody gives a **** about Louis the sun king anymore, English and German have replaced French as the lingua franca of Europe, your country is completely Paris-centric and Paris ******* sucks, and your most elite fighting force is composed entirely of foreigners. Also at least Hitler was a ******** crazy idealist unlike Napolean who was simply an egoist and whom many French still seem to revere.
