Here is my best explanation:

'into pieces' is the definition.
('asunder' can be a synonym of 'into pieces')

'like a french and german article' is the wordplay.
'like' becomes 'as'.
'a french' becomes 'un' ('a' in French).
'and' says to put letters next to each other.
'german article' becomes 'der'.
'as'+'un'+'der'='ASUNDER'
