The problem with this scenario is you can, as the French, take all the objective cities and should then win the game.
I did it about 20 turns.
However the AI will not recognise the victory, and given you lose 1 morale point whilst the AI gains one per turn you are on a long hard road to defeat given the AI wins when her morale reaches 150 or something, leaving you controlling all objectives but without an enemy to attack, beat and gain morale from.
Possibly the most stupid scenario apart from the Russian one.
If you control every city on the Spanish mainland consider it a victory and quit.

A disaster of a product, warn your mates not to buy it. It is also very unstable and riddled with bugs.
