"Early in the morning of May 10, 1940, Adolf Hitler launched a torrent of steel and fire upon France, Belgium, and Holland, in one of the greatest military assaults in history. Led by tanks and five bombers using the new concept of lightning war, his multiple columns flashed like great talons across northern France and the Low Countries. Cutting the defending armies to pieces, dividing and surrounding them, they littered the countryside with burning villages, jammed the roads with fleeing refugees, brought the Belgians to surrender, drove the British to their evacuation at Dunkirk, and swept down over the paralyzed formations of the French army to enter Paris and occupy two-thirds of the country."
