The Second World War. Europe 1939 - 1941.Вторая Мировая война. Европа 1939 - 1941
The German invasion of Poland marked the beginning of the bloodiest war of the 20th century - the Second World War. On September 1, Hitler addressed the German soldiers with the following words: "The Polish state has refused a peaceful settlement of the conflict, as I proposed to do, and has taken up arms ... Several violations of the border, which are unbearable for a great state, prove that Poland does not intend to respect the frontiers of the Reich.
