[QUOTE=Aristogeiton]No, he invaded Austria first, then Czechoslovakia, then Poland.
And had Churchill met with Heß the rest of the war could've been avoided, but no. Cheers Churchill!
But if we're playing the 'blame-game' then why not blame the people who gave the prussian land to Poland rather than Germany after WW1? That's why Germany invaded Poland, or even, we can skip forward a bit and blame certain individuals in the Polish government who retracted the Polish gov's original agreement with Germany over the Prussian lands? There's plenty more I could shove some blame onto too, want me to try?
Don't bother trying to outwit me with regards to WW2, you will fail.
you haven't answered points 1-6 either.
Congratulations! You just won the funniest and most ridiculous comment of the day award!!!![/QUOTE
Prussia was never ethnically German. It was captured by the tuetonic knights in 1238. Germans are central Europeans, Prussia is in Eastern Europe. The Nazi invasion was part of a continious process of trying to subdue the Polish people, which had been going on for hundreds of years. Czechoslovakia never contained a German majority. And Austria was hardly an invasion, more of a parade. But you are ignoring events in China in the 1930s. Fascist Japan invaded Manchuria in 1931, eight years before Poland. This was an act of unprovoked aggression. The same is true of Pearl Harbour in 1941, an act which arguably transformed an Asian war and a European war into world war. Doesn't matter how far back you go, Prussia was never truly German.
Oh yeah and who started WWI, Belgium didn't invade Germany. Territorial confiscation resulting from the Treaty of Versailles in 1919 was a direct result of German aggression.
