Do the Belgians ever surrender? I've controlled Brussels since early May and it's now mid August. I suppose all games are a waste of time but when they don't respond correctly the point is really emphasized.

Well, that's not a very nice thing to say when you're asking a question about a game...
Regarding the question, however, which version of EA are you playing? The latest one from Xtreme-Gamer or Rugged Defence, TOAW III (b)? Or the version that came with TOAW III? The version that came with TOAW III was reported to have several errors, so MArk Steves reconverted it to a point where it should work (and that's the newest version over at Extreme-Gamer.
However, are you sure that the Belgians did not surrender, and the Belgian units you now see are units that reconstituted before they could be withdrawn? If you read the manual that comes with the scenario you will note that this is mentioned and these units shoudl be used as Belgians(it also happens to others) that escaped to fight in exile.
If you have your oppoenent look at the Belgian formation he will be able to see if any in that formation are marked as 'withdrawn'. If one or more are, than the previous explanation is probably correct. If none of them are, there is the chance that it is some kind of error.

It was not my intention to offend anyone, I'm just annoyed. This is not the latest version though neither one of us wanted to start over(on turn 33 when the update was released).Oh well, I may not get to Paris. I still have to invest the entire Belgian army at the Dutch border. The didn't reconstitute.They just never surrendered(and appear to be in very good supply}.
