Isn't it lucky my European History course is right at the prewar period..
French Goverments 1936-1939 were very unstable.
there was even a coup attempt in 1937 by a secrect cabal of army officers and police, called the...uh..wheres my notes for yesterday..here we go, The Cagoule, meaning "the hooded ones", at least thats what my prof said. Anyways, they tried to overthrow the goverment at the time in nov of 1937. They failed, but they did murder a number of promenint leftists. of course, my textbook dosn't list any of the names. But simply this event could push france dissent up a fair bit.
Some other stuff that was the Policies of the Popular front goverment, headed by Leon Blum, was in 1936 he stopped their programs of reform, to lessen the worries of the Upper classes, in march 1937. by June, france had gotten so bad, Blum resigned, and a radical goverment was formed.
There were ALOT of strikes at this period in france, so the stike event probably should happen to france a fair bit here. Also, the Left in france was extreamly upset that the goverment wasn't going to help the Republicans in Spain, so maybe if france chooses not to help, dissent goes up.
in 193, blum attepted to come back, but was unsuccessful, and a new radical goverment was formed under Edouard Daladier, who was to repleal the 40 hour work week law that had been passed in 1936( more dissent!). Paul Reynaud became fiance minister, and his policies recovered frances economy, but in 1939. This Could possibly give some production to the French, which i notice, is horrible! i just finished a game, wher ei was horribly mauled as the french, as they only had 126 ic to begin with...have an increase of 5 or so in some of the major provinces, that could help, not that the world will be at peice for much longer, but it may give them a fighting chance.
France really didn't seemm to want to leap into war like the british...maybe there could be an option for the french to stay out, at least for a little while.
