Seem to be having similar issue. Haven't conquered all of France but have several major cities and Paris. I got some event about French taxes, but all French units still fight and nothing about Vichy? Tried to fire event 76 with f12, but no luck. Is this part of the game broken? Kind of a bad deal if so, as France surrendering and Vichy being created is something all games about WW2 need to consider. I have yet to see a war game that did have special conditions for France surrendering
Where is this in the ToW documentation?
AFAIK the game does cover Vichy, because as the Axis player, at some point if you are capturing France, including Paris, you will be offered an opportunity to accept the establishment of Vichy France. If you refuse the offer, then France will fight on, but when the offer will appear depends on your progress, you may have to capture Le Mans before the event will trigger.
