Orders of Battle
for Wargaming the
French Army of 1940
The orders of battle listed here have been edited for wargame use, and
only list the combat troops present in each unit.
As an example, a Char
B1 tank battalion
had 30 combat tanks and these would be given in the OOB. It also had 1
command tank, 3 replacement tanks, half-a-dozen cars, 80
trucks/lorries, 18 Lorraine carriers and 44 motorcycles none of which
were used by combat troops. These extra vehicles and troops were
critical in keeping
the tanks in action, and certainly needed if you were to run a wargames
but they are not necessary for playing a normal wargame and
I have therefore left them out.
