Kinda ignoring the fact they fought hardest against the Germans a generation before that and without doubt sacrificed the most in the first world War to win

Not to mention 1500 years as a great European power and then the next greatest Colonial empire after Britain all the way up to world War 2

Not to mention they continued to fight and resist occupation and fought in north Africa as free France
