1939 – Cómo se gestó la guerra en Europa

By Duncan Mil

September 1, 2019 - La Segunda Guerra Mundial -- que estalló en septiembre de 1939 con la invasión de Polonia por Hitler -- comenzó como una lucha para recuperar el territorio perdido por Alemania bajo el Tratado de Versalles, que puso fin a la Primera Guerra Mundial.

National humiliation, punitive war reparations and the worst economic crisis of the 20th century fuelled Germany’s vengeance.

On September 1, 1939, at 04:45 in the morning, the brutal blitzkrieg of Operation Weiss began with German tanks crossing the Polish border, supported by Stuka dive-bombers.

This second plunge into devastation within the space of a generation replaced trench warfare with U-boats, planes and the deadliest weapons technology could produce. And this time the horrors of concentration camps, death marches and the systematic persecution perpetrated by Nazi forces would be condemned by all at the war’s end.
