Dunno when, but After the fall of Hitler, the German people said no more totalitarian hose head for us
Germany did not fall under Communist rule until after WW2. After WW2 East Germany fell under Communist rule.
The specific reason was that German forces invaded Belgium on their way to France. Britain, France and Prussia (the key forerunner of Germany) had guaranteed Belgian neutrality in 1839 (and again in 1875). Moreover, Britain was an ally of France and was not willing to let a substantial part of the coast opposite Britain fall into unfriendly hands.
The Battle of Britain happened AFTER most of Europe had already been conquered by Germany.
During World War II, in the summer and fall of 1940, what is now known famously as "The Battle of Britain" took place between Germany and Great Britain. The battle consisted of daily clashes of large groups of warplanes in the skies above Great Britain, the English Channel, and sometimes even of occupied France. Against very steep odds, the British air force succeeded in maintaining control of British airspace and, thus, prevented a German invasion of the island.
Poland was the first Allied country invaded & defeated by Germany in WW2.
The official reason was the German invasion of Belgium. In addition, Britain was to all practical intents and purposes the ally of France. Moreover, Britain didn't want to be dwarfed by Germany or let the coast opposite fall into unfriendly hands. Joncey
To simply put it, if Winston Churchill was died or was killed during WW2, Britain would fall raver quickly. This is because Winston Churchill was a powerful and motivated speaker, which made good decisions for Britain during World War 2. Britain wouldn't stand a chance if it wasn't for Winston Churchill and his experiences.
The countries involved were Great Britain, France and Germany. The Phony War was actually not a war, but a lull in World War 2 which occured after the fall of Poland to Germany. Great Britain and France remained officially at war with Germany, but neither side made any great military moves toward the other, so it was called the Phony War.
The Fall of France in 1940 meant that Germany had access to the Atlantic Ocean, circumventing the British blockade of Germany.
Germany invaded France beginning on May 10th, 1940. Paris was captured by Germany on June 14th, and France signed an armistice (surrender) on June 22nd, 1940.
During World War II, Greece briefly opposed both Italy and then Germany before being overcome in the spring of 1941. Great Britain supplied military aid, including ground and air forces, to Greece as it was being invaded by Germany but this was insufficient to prevent the country's fall. It was occupied by Axis forces until its liberation in 1945.
Operation Barbarossa was Germany's first major defeat, Germany was hoping by end of 1941 or 194 latest that the USSR would fall and Germany would force britain to submit and possible including america.

It normally refers to the invasion & defeat of France by Hitler's Nazi Germany between 10 May - 22 June 1940 during the Second World War.
World War 2 was officially started on September 1, 1939 with the German invasion of Poland, although the groundwork for the war had been laid years earlier. The previous alliance between Germany and the USSR doomed Poland. Yet, Poland had two world powers (France and Great Britain) as allies, and they remained at war with Germany after the fall of Poland.
WW1 had shown how very vulnerable Britain was to hostile submarines in the Atlantic, and the development of bombers had made much of Britain vulnerable. After the fall of France, the enemy was much nearer and could easily use airfields in Belgium and France. The whole coastline opposite Britain, from the Arctic Circle to the border between France and Spain was in enemy hands. Joncey
The British were a part of the Anglo-Polish military alliance, an agreement between several countries, including England, France, and Poland. When the Germans invaded Poland in the fall of 1939, Great Britain gave the Germans an ultimatum to pull all of their troops out of Poland immediately, but Germany ignored them. A day later, Great Britain and France declared war on Germany, as they had agreed to do as part of the military alliance.
During World War II, the world was divided between the Allied and the Axis powers. The Allied Powers consisted primarily of the United States, Great Britain, and Russia.
