Germany had already taken over Czeckoslovakia and Austria. Hitler had managed, by a brilliant combination of threats and diplomacy, to achieve these without war. When he remained beligerant and it was clear that his apetite was not satiated Britain and France made it known that they would not permit futher German agression to go unchallenged. Specifically they pledged that in the event of a German attack on Poland, they would declare war. That was fine with Hitler, war was what he wanted. Thus, when Poland's turn came, France and Britain gave Germany 24 hours to cease its attack and withdraw. It didn't, so they declared war.Michael Montagne
Directly after Munich Chamberlain sincerely beleived that Hitlers forceful take overs of Germanys surrounding countries would seize, by mid 1939 it was obvious that this was not going to happen. With England and France's promise to Poland they had to react... England gave Hitler till eleven on the morning of the 3rd of September 1939 to call his troops out of Poland, at 11 15 am Chamberlain adressed his country that this had not happened therefore England declared war on Germany. Because of Englands and Frances promise to Poland and to their countries (to ensure their safety from the dictatorships) that they must go to war... Other European countries than followed in surpport of either the allies or Germany.
The German invasion of Poland and the occupation of eastern Poland, by agreement in the German-Soviet Non-aggression Pact, caused alarm in England and France. After a few days England and France declared war of Germany. As part of its agreement with Germany, Italy began military operations against the British in the Mediterranean Sea. And by November of 1939 the USSR had invaded Finland.
On 3 September 1939 Britain and France, which had treaty obligations to Poland, declared war on Germany. As a result the German invasion of Poland ceased to be a local war.
The German invasion of Poland led to a wider European war due to the fact that England and France had signed a mutual protection agreement with Poland meaning that if Poland was attacked, England and France would come to Poland's aid. When Poland was attacked France and England did declare war on Germany but they did nothing to help Poland. Also after the invasion of Poland Germany and the U.S.S.R fought, which was always inevitable because of the invasion of Poland which brought Germany's and Russia's broders together.
France and England had both pledged their support and defense of Poland.
The UK and France had guaranteed Poland's sovereignty. They were no longer going to stand aside while Germany gobble up nations. Once Germany attacked the UK and France declared war on them.
The invasion of Poland led to a wider European war, firstly by Englands treaty with Poland, and secondly the worlds views on Nazis and Hitlers crule beliefs. After Hitler had declared war on Poland, England gave an ultimatum to pull out or war would be declared, however Germany did not stop with his invasion and however keeped rollong on through Poland. Using the tactic of blitzkreg or aka lightning war. This proved very successful. By sending in stuka dive bombers to soften up the defence of town and cities tanks would roll through to eliminate the larger targets and defenses, followed by the infintary who would clear out any remaining forces. and with Russia comming in from the other side Poland was being stabbed int he back whilst defending its self from a ferocious Greman army
No. A wolf has a stronger jaw and a wider body than a german shepherd.
Eurocenticism : focusing on European culture or history to the exclusion of a wider view of the world; implicitly regarding European culture as preeminent. =]
So they can get a wider spread of land.

becuase thats wat it says in the geography books
They wanted to reach a wider audience.
Italian refers to anything from Italy. Italy is one of many countries in Europe. So European refers to a much wider range of things. Therefore Italian and European are not the same thing.
