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.

How did the German invasion of Poland lead to a wider European war?

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.
