wait till late spring early summer till Germany has established a foothold in France.

Historically, France isn't invaded for a couple of months, and capitulates on June 25, 1940. If I remember correctly from earlier dates in my career, Bordeaux was the only port showing after the fall of France (I was in turnaround from mid June to mid July 1940). Brest and Lorient showed up again by August. On Sept 1 I started getting radio messages about the 7th Flotilla being moved from Kiel to St. Nazaire, but St. Nazaire isn't showing up on the map yet.
