Failure of German propaganda

The French Army in northern France outnumbered the German invasion force, and was fighting a defensive battle on it's home turf, plentifully equipped, and surrounded by supportive French civilians. France fielded 104 full divisions, and had a 50% advantage in tanks, artillery, and trucks.

However, three years of persistent, excellent German propaganda had demoralized the force at all levels. The French Prime Minister phoned Churchill and said 'We are beaten' on the sixth day, long before the actual outcome was decided, and four full weeks before the German Army entered Paris.

Demoralized leadership is less likely to analyze correctly, to innovate, to judge risk properly, to demand achievement from their subordinates...and more willing to accept poor performance and mission failure.
