Suggested correction: This is simply repeating a conspiracy theory for which there is virtually no evidence. There are many other theories including lines of communication and support (including fuel for the German tanks) becoming too long and therefore slowing or stopping the advance and secondly that Goering convinced Hitler that his Luftwaffe was capable of destroying the British and French armies by bombing alone. No doubt there are other theories that could be added.
