comment How did Germany produce such an impressive portfolio of officers for WW2?

comment Why did Britain and France not declare war against the Soviet Union when it invaded Poland in WW2?
@FelixGoldberg The spin was contemporary, but it was not about protecting Poland. It was about protecting the people of Western Belarusian and Western Ukrainian nationality (for propaganda purposes Poland was declared as non-existent and replaced by those semi-countries).
