This was a fun map to make.

NOTE: I do not speak French, and so take no responsibility for the accuracy, or lack of, of the Google-translated French text in this image

It was based on this map of the Occupation Zones of Germany, I decided I wanted to attempt to copy the same style. I turned the occupation on its head, and divided France between its neighbouring countries. I have no idea how this came to happen, I just wanted to try the style. I think it looks rather good.

A very god idea and done even better! I would have two Ideas if I may? I would think that England would be desperate for Gascone/Aquitane since they historically owned them and give something to Luxembourg, they deserve more land :D And no. 2, I'm not sure that Switzerland ,being neutral and all that, would have an occupation zone?

I like this map a lot, but there are two minor things, because I think some countries would also annex parts, such as spain would annex Pyrenees-Orientals (Roussillon, French-Catalonia), Italy would annex the area around Nice and Germany would likely annex Alsache-Lorraine (partially). It would have been cool if you had shown that. :)

And I also think Belgium should get Pas-de-Calais, and maybe the region around Amiens, as it belonged to them in history for a long time. And how about poor little Luxembourg:? I would grant them some land, too. ;)

But over all, great map, I love it! :nod:
Sometime later, the British sector and most of the German sector (the Germans annexed Alsace-Lorraine, while the Belgians and the Swiss annexed their occupation sectors) formed the French Republic - North France, with capital being North Paris, while the Spanish and Italian sectors formed the French State - South France, with the capital being Vichy (not surprising).

I would imagine Britain would just annex Normandy to be a bitch :P
