According to Colonel Herbert Elgar, the German Army's initial progress in the offensive was “making everyone in Paris feel jittery.” The French still had painful memories of Germany advancing into their country at the beginning of the war as well as during World War I and feared yet another repeat. However, there was ultimately little chance of the Germans advancing deep into France and reclaiming all the territory once again. American Marines confidently claimed that the battle would “all be over in a month or two.” (PROSE: The Turing Test)
