France has decided to change its strategy this time. Otherwise, if Germany is forced to fight another world war, France will soon be able to compete with Burkina Faso in GDP per capita. Since the economy is to be restored, it is natural to rebuild the industry. But the supply of raw materials to French industry has been a big problem since ancient times. After the war, although France tried to buy some coal mine supplies from Britain, it still only met 7% of the raw materials required by France's industrial output level in 1937,
which was basically equal to a small donation. (JA Coker, 2016) France needs coal and iron ore, so does Germany To understand the feud between Germany and France is to understand the importance of the Alsace-Lorraine region. Lorraine is an important sms services industrial area. It produces 95% of France's ore, 78% of pig iron, 70% of crude steel, and 60% of finished steel. (J. Grauman and EW Rembert, 1949) Germany and France have two hatreds in one day, three rivers and four seas, mainly in addition to William I's enthronement ceremony in the French Versailles Palace,
and because Germany took the Alsace-Lorraine area after the Franco-Prussian War. Before World War I, this same site produced 74% of Germany's ore, 40% of pig iron, and 35% of finished steel. Behind all wars is a contest of industrial power. Of course, some countries can reverse the laws of physics by themselves, such as Afghanistan, but on the battlefield in Western Europe, it is obvious that this "law of mines at home" achieves energy conservation. Therefore, in order to solve the contradiction between Germany and France, we must first solve the contradiction in the supply of raw materials. How can we not let these two countries fight again, the Americans are very troubled.
