1939 - The Border Violation: Hitler attacks Poland

Rights-Managed, Editorial

Location and time:

Poland, Gleiwitz, 01-09-1939


The Polish September Campaign (alternatively referred to as the German plan Fall Weiss) refers to the conquest of Poland by the armies of Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union and a small contingent of Slovak forces. The campaign began on 1 September 1939 and ended on 6 October 1939 with Germany and the Soviet Union occupying Poland. This military operation marks the start of the Second World War within the European theatre. It was one of the first campaigns featuring the use of blitzkrieg tactics. Polish government and remaining forces evacuated to Romania and later, France and United Kingdom. Polish territories were completely occupied by Germany and the Soviet Union. Soviet territories were later captured by Germany as well. Poland managed to create a strong resistance movement and to contribute military forces to the Allies through the remainder of World War II.
