Belgium - 10th May 1940: It is easy to see why from the German's Point-of-view, the best route into France lay through the Belgian plain. It was the route the Germans used in World War I with the Von Schlieffen Plan. After the First World War, the Franco-Belgian Treaty of Alliance (1920) was signed between the French and a pro-Allied King Albert of Belgium. This treaty called for Allied troops to be invited into Belgium before the start of hostilities. The reason for the advance into Belgium was two fold: First, it was to protect the industries of Northern France that were devastated in the First World War. Secondly, it was the desire of the British to remove the possibility of Germany using airfields located in Belgium from which the Luftwaffe could mount air attacks on Britain. But events were to conspire against Allies. King Albert was killed in a climbing accident in 1934 and was succeeded by his son, Leopold, who abrogated the Treaty to pursue a policy of neutrality. In January of 1940, the German's Plan for the attack through Belgium was discovered by Belgian authorities (See the overview for scenario #132) and for a period of several days the barriers on the French border were removed but no official invitation for Allied assistance came. This scenario depicts the Allied Armies occupying their "Dyer Plan" positions. The German setup is historical.
