Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
If the current nuclear doctrine is applied, the german troops would never go through the border.

In my scenario, I assumed that the German government fully recognises this in the first invasion, but the second government is insane, while France also has to take a possible British return strike into account.

I do not believe that current armies are able to fight traditional wars between modern states. The only forces in shape in europe are Britain's and France's. All the other countries have cut too much of their defence budget to get anything usable against a great power.

I actually agree, that's why the Hungary–Slovakia war in my scenario quickly becomes a quagmire and France defeats Germany soundly twice, without nukes. But IMHO what comes after that is not peace but something like Ukraine or worse.
