 This page shows conflicts between France and the "modern" state of Germany, a nation which developed partially as a result of the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-1871. Though France and various German states and political entities fought wars from the time of Charlegmane, those conflicts are not part of this category.

Franco-Prussian War (July 19, 1870 – May 10, 1871)--Major war between the Prussian-led German forces and the Second French Empire. This war helped cause the unification of Germany and paved the way for the ongoing hostility which was a leading cause of World War One.

World War I (1914-1918)

French and Belgian Occupation of the Ruhr Valley (Jan. 11, 1923-August, 1925)--Germany fell behind in war payments to the Allies due to the collapse of the German economy. France and Belgium invade and occupy the industrial Ruhr Valley region of western Germany until the re-payments are complete.

World War II (1939-1945)
