When Does Surrender Make Sense?

A highly respected war hero, who helped his country immeasurably during World War One, Philippe Petain believed that surrendering France to Germany, in 1940, was the best option the French people had.

Charles de Gaulle, on the other hand, believed that surrendering France to Germany was neither smart nor needed.

Why do you think a man who was once a war hero believed surrendering his country to Germany made any sense at all?

If an invasion force came into your country, with the intent of occupying the land and running the country to suit its own purposes, how do you think your fellow citizens would respond? What are some of the resistance options they could employ?  

Would you support resisting a foreign invasion of your country? What could you do to help the resistance?
