    It's so unfair that France also gets those culture and tourism bonuses. It needs a nerf. Anyway, if you want to watch more documentaries about how OP France is, check out all the number of fun historical documentaries on CuriosityStream here: curiositystream.com/reallifelore

      @Flo Alternity France has the highest productivity rate in the world ! The Americans need to work twice as much to produce the same quantity as the French so...who is lazy ?

    Pffft... Easyy to defend. French cant defend for shit, even if it means their homeland. They didnt win a war for how long now? Geographical armor? maybe if they knew how to defend their homeland, but its there for the shine not the protection. Give me a break... "geographical armor"... Tell that to Germany. France is a joke and will be a joke. go eat some frogs

    Well the French war of 1870 is the Franco Prussian war
    The French war of 1914 is the World War One (1st Great War)
    The French war of 1939 is the World War Two (2nd Great War)

    4:55 Germany didn’t invade France in 1939, WW2 “started” in 1939, but Germany invaded french soil on May 1940.

    And green Germany too
    And mountainous norway
    Even the green and grey British Island.
    But only one place in Europe have a little piece of the rest and for this reason is the sublime place , the peninsula iberica.

      •French invasion of Normandy
      •Anglo-French war of 1213
      •100 years war

    Constructive feedback: you spelled the names of three rivers incorrectly. It's Seine (not Siene), Loire (not Lorie) and Garonne (not Garrone). NB: I'm not French.

    Sorry, the French Empire bordered Austria and the Ottoman Empires?...
    600 years before the Ottoman Empire existed, and 400 before the duchy of Austria did?
    You're also ignoring the original plan of the Belgium side of the Maginot Line, French troops were station alongside Belgium rivers until Belgium declared neutrality, forcing France to fall back to undefensable terrain. Step it up man.
