"For the first time last night, Polish military invaded our territory and attacked from our soil. We have now been returning fire since 5:45 AM ! And from now on, we shall repay bomb for bomb!"

Adolf Hitler's speech to the German Reichstag, Berlin - September 1, 1939

Quote
On September 1, 1939, the pre-dawn skies lit up over the Baltic Sea as the German battleship Schleswig-Holstein opened fire on a Polish fortress on the Westerplatte Peninsula as assault troops hidden aboard the vessel stormed the shoreline. The venerable ship that had seen action in World War I fired the first salvos of what would be a second global conflagration. Without a declaration of war, 1.5 million troops stormed Nazi Germanys 1,750-mile border with Poland. They came from the north, south and west. They came by land, by air and by sea in a quest to regain territory lost by Germany in the Treaty of Versailles and colonize its neighbor.

In the middle of the month, those sneaky Poles must have sneak attacked the Soviet Union.
