And considering the size of the French and Belgian formations they had to have taken some good sized losses during the invasion of both areas - none of the French formations in those areas is anywhere near pre-war manpower or equipment
Still think the Belgians joining the French freely is a little bit to much, the country is divided into a French and Dutch speaking part, never would the Dutch speaking part become a member of a French speaking alliance.
