FRENCH LANGAUGE BOOK: The crucial question of the armored divisions initiated by Colonel de Gaulle in 1934 with his crusade for the professional army, obscured, vis-à-vis the general public, a major element of the development of the French army during the period of the rearmament: yes, France had, from the pre-war period, light mechanical divisions (DLM) which had only slight names. With their 300 armored vehicles including 250 tanks (Somua, Hotchkiss and AMR Renault tracked) and 50 Panhard armored cars, their three battalions of dragons carried on motorcycles and off-road cars and their 36 artillery pieces of 75 and 105 towed , they constituted, more or less, the French equivalent of the Panzerdivisions. Better, the concept of the DLM was born in France three years before the idea is imposed across the Rhine.
