The text translates in part: French territory is placed under German military administration. Military chiefs will taken necessary measures for security of the troops and for the maintenance of calm and order. Troops will see to the well being of the population if they remain calm. The country's authorities will continue to function if they are ready for loyal collaboration. I expect...the population to abstain from irresponsible action, sabotage, passive or active resistance. Orders must be executed unconditionally. The German army would regret if by isolated hostile civilian actions, it would be obliged to reply with very severe measures against the population...
