Can Public Uprisings Change the Course of Events?

What was Hitler trying to achieve by occupying France? Was it inevitable that he (and his objectives) would be defeated?

How did the uprisings, by the people of Paris, lead to Hitler's ultimate defeat in France?

Without those Parisian prisings, do you think General Eisenhower would have sent Allied troops to help General de Gaulle recapture the French capital?

After the Germans were ousted from Paris, de Gaulle made this announcement (translated into English): “Paris violated … Paris martyred … but Paris liberated.”  What does the picture at the top of this chapter tell you about the liberation of Paris?

Is Hitler’s dream of a “Thousand Year Reich” similar, or not similar, to the idea of a “Global Caliphate?” Explain your answer.
