France Mobilises For War

France mobilises for War

"Ohé partisans, ouvriers et paysans, c'est l'alarme!"
"Ce soir l'ennemi connaîtra le prix du sang et des larmes."
"Ahoy! Resistants, workers and farmers, the alarm has sounded!"
"Tonight the enemy shall know the price of blood and tears."
- Le Chant Des Partisans, French Resistance War Song

In the context of war, 'mobilisation' refers to the act of a state preparing itself all of its resources for war. Although all countries possess standing armies and the first battles of a war are typically fought within the first week, mobilisation is a much more time consuming process and can take weeks or months depending on the size, wealth, and political system of the state. During this time, new military expansion is planned with the recruitment lists expanded. Military factories increase their output to maximum, whilst non-military factories are converted as quickly as possible- automobile factories might be converted to tank factories for example, whilst clothing factories now produce uniforms and poor weather gear. Resources are mustered across the country and transported to depots in order to be made available. In essence, full mobilisation brings the entire country to a state of war readiness that would be exhausting and overly expensive in peacetime.

The French frontier is as secure as it's ever going to be. In the months since the start of the war, the myriad industries of France have been gearing up for total war, converting factories and training workers: car makers become tank builders; plane factories now produce fighter jets and bombers; clothesmakers now produce uniforms; metalworkers now produce guns. Recruitment has been going at extreme speed across the country; since the start of the war, another 600,000 soldiers have been added to the French military, along with thousands of tanks and aircraft.
