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.

These figures do show that the victory was not as easy as the very short time span and simple statistics might indicate. In total, 90,000 Polish military personnel escaped to either Hungary or Rumania and a number of Polish airman fought with distinction in the Battle of Britain.

Finally accepting that Germany could not be appeased Britain and France stepped up their rearmament programmes and gave guarantees to Poland, Hitler’s next target.

After signing a non-aggression pact with the Soviets, Hitler demanded territorial concessions from the Poles. These were refused and the Germans attacked on 1 September 1939. Britain and France declared war two days later. The Second World War had begun.

  1. My father passed away last month and I found in his attic a stamp collection with more than 20 books of old stamps. In one envelope found a Monaco stamp just like you have in this page: the stamp reads “Principaute De Monaco” 5F, and is red, he place it in a small envelope.
