Answer: The start of World War II began on September 1, 1939, when Germany invaded Poland. To Adolf Hitler, the conquest of Poland would bring Lebensraum, or “living space,” for the German people. Hitler claimed the massive invasion was a defensive action, but Britain and France were not convinced. On September 3, they declared war on Germany, initiating World War II. The Polish army was defeated within weeks of the invasion. After heavy shelling and bombing, Warsaw surrendered to the Germans on September 27, 1939.
