OKH ordered to reduce the Heer's strength

Target is reducing by 35 divisions to 120 divisions - which means demobilising roughly 20% of the men under arms - allowing them to return to industry and agriculture where labour is needed.

Halder concludes:

[This is] based on the assumption that with the now final collapse of the enemy [France] the army will have fulfilled its mission [and] the Air Force and the Navy will be carrying on the war against Britain alone.
