This invasion marked the beginning of WWII. This was the first major invasion of a nation by the Wehrmacht-icon (Eastern Front) Wehrmacht, who used a new genius German strategy, BLITZKREIG! Blitzkreig was the strategy of coordinating a major attack to a specific location, instead of the usual strategy of slowly taking land until the target is reached they would just make one major push there. This strategy was immensely helpful for the first half of the war, catching many armies off guard, eventually this strategy became useless making the Wehrmacht war machine halt.

When the Germans pushed into the West, Soviet-icon the Soviet Union pushed into the East, hoping to take the lands they lost to Poland in the Polish - Soviet War of 1921.
