First off, while France indeed spends more, a good share of that goes to the Navy, which won't come into play much in such a conflict. Germany spends more on the forces that actually matter here. Also, Germany was expected to be the battleground in case of a NATO/Warsaw pact war, so it is well prepared for exactly that kind of engagement.
Also, nukes are difficult to estimate here. If there is a previous buildup of tensions, then Germany is likely to have its own nukes by the time when the sh*t hits the fan.
A lot will depend on which side attacks the other one. There too i would give Germany the edge, because it holds lands on the western side of the Rhine, to be used as a staging ground. France would have to fight its way across the Rhine as it doesn't hold any land on the eastern side of it.
So...i'd clearly put my money on Germany.

I think it would depend on the length of the conflict.
If it was a short war, then France would have the advantage, since it has a larger, better prepared army. The French have been very effective militarily in the past, e.g. Napoleon conquered most of Europe.
If is was a long conflict spanning years, then Germany would have the advantage because of its economic strength, larger population, and manufacturing capability. The Germans could quickly outpace the French in military expenditure and production.
Germany is not a nuclear armed power, but it is nuclear capable (with the technology and resources at readily hand), and could construct a small nuclear arsenal in about 3 or 4 months. So France has no advantage there.

I'd go for Germany, France, is, and always has been a bunch of pussy's.
Jbomb 22 needs to check his facts,
UK has a larger air force, France is 4th in Nato in terms of aircraft.
In terms of advancement, they are Fielding jets that were designed in the 70's and 80's compared with the modern euro fighter that germany Fields. Americans are ahead of france with the raptor, f-35 etc.
Notice that the french economy is 2nd to germany's.
The aircraft carriers they have are NOT super carriers, they are medium carriers, they're 40,000 tonnes compared to 70,000 classed as a super carrier.
The Germans are armed with the G36, which has been described as the best assault riffle ever made, so that tops the guns that france sells to china..
The germans are equipped with the leopard 2, which are arguable one of the best 2 tanks in the world.
There's more, but you get the picture, guy above doesn't know his stuff. Germany in my opinion would win.
Also, 750million people?! What are you high?!
Germany has more population with 81million, france has 65million people, so good effort on making one person become essentially 11...

Germany's military is weak today.
They have made drastic cuts in the last 20 years, so it is only a shell of its former cold war strength.
Think of it this way, germany is now so PC, that german soldiers are NOT allowed to wear their uniforms off Base
because the sight of a uniform, might offend one of their citizens.

we have to say Germany we know like Britain this is a fighting nation! i would be hard pressed to include any other country as having the staying power to win a war

Is this a serious question? French soldiers would be waving white flags with the first pair of German jackboots marching across the border like always.
