Hitler annexes Czechoslovakia and invades Poland

Hitler's annexation of Czechoslovakia and invasion of Poland in 1939 are explored via commentary and primary footage. Hitler used legal means to annex Czechoslovakia, resulting in the Munich Agreement with Chamberlain as Britain followed its policy of appeasement. Believing Britain was not going to intervene, Hitler made a deal with Stalin to divide Poland under the secret non-aggression pact. In September 1939, Hitler invaded Poland and Britain declared war; World War Two had begun.
