Invasion of Poland. The invasion lasted for over a month. It started on September 1, 1939, and lasted until October 6, 1939. The Germans and Soviets declared victory during this invasion, but it did not stop there, as the invasion was the start of World War II.

There were many territory changes that occurred as a result of the invasion. One is that the Polish territory was divided between the Slovak state, Lithuania, Germany, and the Soviet Union. Next was that Danzig and Kresy were both annexed, while Vilnius was given to Lithuania.

No. Pearl Harbor is when the USA got involved. Not when the war started. The Assassination of Arch Duke Ferdinand started the war and the invasion of Poland started the war because France and Britain said they would get involved if Poland was invaded. And they did. But WWII started as a conflict between two countries.

Looks like Germany alone was a bad boy. What about Soviet Russia?Soviet Unioninvaded Poland 2 weeks later! They were allies who divided and conquered the Europe. German-Soviet military parade was at Brest-Litovsk September 22, 1939

The correct answer is Germany and Soviet Union.
Too embarrassing to USA, who helped Soviets to grab half of Europe after war and have nuclear headache till now!.
