At 4:45 on the morning of September 1, 1939
(the morning following the staged attack),
German troops entered Poland. The sudden, immense attack by the Germans was called
a Blitzkrieg (“lightening war”).
The term “Blitzkrieg” was coined by Western newspapermen to convey
the rapid and mechanized German attack on Poland.
The German air attack
hit so quickly that most of Poland’s air force was destroyed while still on the ground.
To hinder Polish mobilization,
the Germans bombed bridges and roads. Groups of marching soldiers were machine-gunned from the air.
But the Germans did not just aim for soldiers, they also shot at civilians. Groups of fleeing civilians often found themselves under attack. The more confusion and chaos the Germans could create, the slower Poland could mobilize its forces.
Using 62 divisions, six of which were armored and ten mechanized, the Germans invaded Poland by land. Poland was not defenseless, but they could not compete with Germany’s motorized army. With only 40 divisions, none of which were armored, and with nearly their entire air force demolished, the Poles were at a severe disadvantage – Polish cavalry were no match for German tanks.
