80th anniversary of WWII: The long Polish year of 1939

The attack of Nazi Germany on Poland on September 1, 1939, and the subsequent Soviet aggression on September 17 marked the second apocalypse for Poland. Poland could not win alone against the two most powerful armies in the world – writes Mateusz MORAWIECKI Prime Minister of Republic of Poland in his article: The long Polish year of 1939

He also writes that: The Second World War would have probably ended in a few months with Hitler’s defeat if France and the United Kingdom had opened the Western Front in September 1939. Their advantage over the Reich in the number of divisions was crushing. This was the opinion of Hitler’s generals themselves. The price of this omission was the fall of France in 1940, Vichy, and the battle for Britain.

Those words should be a warning for all of us right now, today. Are they???
