Not as Simple as You Think
Posted by: Dale Franks on Sunday, October 08, 2006

By the way, here's a note to reader Joab, who, commenting on my WWII project, wrote:
The entry for the French shouldn’t cut too far into your free time.
You were wrong. Those hats are a bitch.

And you have to draw all those arms raised in the air and get the colour and movement of the white flags, correct, too.

Que la ligne de Maginot entière chose n’a pas fonctionné comme nous espérions.
(according to Babel Fish)

Translation: That whole Maginot Line thing didn’t work like we hoped.

The hats? I’d think that was nothing compared to the various rank insignia of DeGaulle’s nose. As an aside, Dale, I used to belong to a Desert Combat gaming clan and decorated my computer with several military unit insignia that I found here: http://www.military-graphics.com/

Joe—your comment was funny.

Ah yes, Flash version 8.

Too bad there isn’t a version out for Linux.

In fact, it worked great: the Germans attacked a weak point in it. Gave the French the significant advantage of a large front the Germans were not inclined to attack, and could not breach easily.

Don, while I would term you comment correct I was referencing the prevailing thought of that day, which believed that the Germans would be either repelled by the Maginot Line or significantly intimidated by it to not attack. Of course, it wasn’t implemented as well as it could have been either, which led to the Germans overtaking France in record time. But it did deter Germany to invade beyond the Maginot Line, but likely only because it was more expedient for them than going through it.
