May 1940 Fall of France 1:35 Scale Model Diorama

The Fall of France, or the Battle of France, began on 10 May 1940 when German forces defeated Allied forces in a series of operations.

The diorama features 6th Panzer Division. Heinz Guderian, the German general, has arrived in his Sd.Kfz. 251/6 to determine what has halted his advance in the race to reach the channel coast. Two French Hotchkiss tanks have formed a road block to try and slow the German's advance to give others time to escape, and the surviving crewmen have been captured after the short battle. Luftwaffe radio operators are calling on air cover to sweep the road ahead of any resistance whilst two Panzer crewmen listen to the radio reports.

The Battle of France eventually lead to the conquest of France, Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands.
