Marsh Is.#239 Invasion of Poland - 1989 Imperforate Mint Issue

September 1, 1939 The storm brewing across Europe broke with great force when more than one million German troops moved across the Polish border at 4:45 a.m. Within 48 hours, the Polish Air Force was completely destroyed and Poland's 35-division army was reeling from the blitzkrieg (lightning war) tactics of Germany's modern mechanized army. On September 3, the declaration of war on Germany by Great Britain and France marked the beginning of World War II.

Scarcely firing a shot, Stalin's troops obtained half of Poland and annexed the Baltic States of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.
