ABSTRACT
The article answers a question on whether the French forces could have prevailed if the Germans had gone with their first plan rather than the revised thrust through the Ardennes in 1940. It cites the four deployment directives, or operations plans, launched by Germany in the West after the defeat of Poland. It asserts that the Germans demonstrated better leadership and stronger tactical skills than the French during the May-June 1940 campaign.
