SKU: B0436
Calculated at checkout

    On 1 September, 1939 the world changed forever as Adolf Hitler launched his invasion of Poland and the Second World War began. Britain and France declared war on Germany on 3 September, and all the members of the Commonwealth of Nations, except Ireland, rapidly followed suit. The fighting in Poland was brief and Polish resistance was quickly crushed. The first German Lightning Attack, or Blitzkrieg, in Poland took place only a week after the signing of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Non-Aggression Pact between Germany and the Soviet Union.

    Within six weeks the German tanks had made it across Poland, assisted by Soviet forces, and the Poles were defeated by early October. Richard Hargreaves’ in depth account of the invasion is told in the words of the troops who conquered Poland, from dawn on 1 September to the fierce fighting in the defence of the Polish capital.
