Best Answer

he German-Soviet Union nonaggression pact allowed Nazi Germany and Stalin's Soviet Union to take over the lands they lost during World War I without facing the threat of each other's conquest. The two Axis powers pursued western and eastern European nations, respectively. Germany first invaded western Poland, beginning the conquest and the second world war, and the Soviet Union followed Germany's lead, aggressively taking control of eastern Poland.
