The Fall of France is the third short story of the New World series. The Fall of France chronicles the history of the Orcs, their attack on Hispania, and then the Wars in both Hispania, and then France, and because of this it is the longest by far of the short stories.
The Fall of France contains two smaller background stories told from the POV of Jessie Eisenburg, and Franky Munitz of which explain the early history of the region of France, and the early history of the region of Hispania.
The Fall of France starts with the story telling of the events of the Fall of Hispania, and then quickly moves to the attemps to hold onto Andorra. When Andorra falls the war basically falls apart, and the Orcs run gong show throughout France, and proceed to destroy much of France before finally the humans and allies of Europe group together at Lyons to try and save the region. At the Battle of Lyons the alliance is wiped out by the Orcs and following this defeat the Bretonians flee from France and the Orcs have complete control over France.

For the story the main characters are of the Kingdom of Bretonia, and the Roman Empire, and it is during the POV of the Roman General Lucius Vorenus that we learn most of the story elements for the Roman Empire.
