Notes As the C in C of the army Foch naturally had a seat in the military Governing Committee. As commander of the army of Paris, France's only remaining army with any organisation, Petain was effectively ground forces commander. Army chief of operations, and Foch's deputy. Petain and Foch delegated much of the civilian reorganising to Weygand.

Notes Following Foch's assassination Petain decided to form a second committee. He and Weygand had always hated each other, this bitterness became worse. Their endless quarrels caused Petain to launch a coup against Weygand, he arrested him and proclaimed himself head of state. Petain still delegated civilian matters to Weygand, until he disagreed with Petain's proposal of conscription. This was one of the causes of the May 1st coup. Following the coup Weygand was imprisoned at Grenoble pending execution until this was carried out, 14 years later.
