Hitler entered France by conquering this nation on its northwestern border_________.

This question was on a test I just got back today and I can't figure it out.

Isn't the only nation on the northwest border of France Great Britain??? Anyway, the answer is not Great Britain, b cuz that is what I put and I obviously got it wrong.

~thnx in advance*

Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Have you looked at a map of Europe to see what is on the northwest border of France?

The only thing I can see is Britain on the northwestern side. Am I missing something? I mean, what other counries are northwest of France, besides Britain and Ireland (Ireland was a wrong answer too)

On a European map, look directly northwest of France; you will see a small country that Germany would need to go through.

Switzerland? Belgium? Normandy??!??
