There a hell of a lot of difference between massed conscript armies fighting in the field and surrendering in mass, especially given some of the blundering idiots that populated French and English high command in 1940 versuses a group of determined people with there back against the wall.
Do you thing a bunch of armed civilians would have done better. PS The British Expeditionary Force were professional soldiers not conscripts.

The English would have bravely fought to the end. But they would have lost
Exactly and no bunch of armed civilians would have made any difference.

If every adult male Jew had a rifle, it wouldn't have happened."

Had the inhabitants of the Warsaw Ghetto been better armed the results would have been quite different. Think April 19, 1775.
Any one that believes this is i am sorry just wrong.
