The fate of desperate civilians and of French soldiers who try to comprehend the reasons for this total collapse and for the defeat of May – June 1940, known as « The Fall of France ». Where were the commanders, who had given the orders?
Personal testimonies of civilians –children and adolescents at the time – who recall their departure, the 6 weeks on the road bombed by German planes. Could the battle of May 1940 have been won ? Noone has the answer, but all wonder about this utter defeat.
