It seems France and England were considering merging in 1956. The French made the proposal. When that idea fell through, the French offered to become part of England, and even accept the sovereignty of the Queen.
Problem was that England didn’t want them.
So, the French surrendered to England, and there wasn’t even a war on. Not even a battle. No fight. Nothing.
How bad is it when you try to surrender, and the other country just walks away?
Something to think about.
