Today in History – 1 September 1939

75 years ago today, Germany launched Fall Weiß (Plan White), the invasion of Poland, beginning the European phase of WWII.

On 17 September, the Russians would enter Poland from the East.  The combination of the Wehrmacht in the west and the Red Army in the east was too much for the Polish forces to counter, and by 6 October, the September Campaign was over, and Poland had fallen.
