Eighty years on. 18th September 1939

18th September 1939


In Poland, the battle of the Bzura ended with 170,000 Polish prisoners.  Polish Cypher Bureau members arrived in Paris with the German “Enigma” cypher codes. The Polish government fled to Rumania, where they were interned.   William Joyce (“Lord Haw-Haw”) was employed by German radio.  

Game day 18: Italy

Italy took no action. Historically Mussolini believed that the country would not be ready for a major war until 1943.
