interesting facts:
The World War II began on September 1, 1939 by a German invasion of Poland from the west, north and south. On September 17th Poland was attacked also from the east by the Soviet Union. Germans and Soviets met each other on the line dividing Poland into halves, which was pre-determined in the Ribbentrop-Molotov pact. This line became the new German-Soviet border. The last Polish units capitulated on October 6, 1939 and this is the day finishing the Defensive War called as well the September Campaign. The world war however, was only beginning.
