Actually, the French had a better chance of "confining" Hitler if they weren't so damned complacent with their inept generals.<quoted text>
Of course they could have done something. They could have stopped Hitler dead in 1938 even. Actually, they could have stopped him in 1935. Hitler succeeded due to a range of high-risk gambles that only worked due to the ineptitude of the Western democracies to do something. FIne enough, but then these same "freedom loving" nations cannot proclaim any moral high ground either. Likewise, how many raids did the allies launch upon concentration camps? They probably knew to a higher and more systematic extent what was going on than the average German civilian and even most of the armed forces.
The brits could have stopped it and so could the french. Well, in case of the french, could have TRIED may be more fitting, LOL.
As for the concentration camps, you're assuming the allies had knowledge of what was taking place. You let me know when you have more information on that.
