WWII Timeline

Events On This Day

Polish troops still resisted desperately near Modlin, north-west of Warsaw, and in the capital itself. In southeast Poland, the Germans claimed to have captured Lwow.

The German high command announced that 450,000 Polish prisoners have been taken to date, and 800 aeroplanes destroyed or captured.

Mussolini, in a speech to the fascist leaders at Rome, declared that the moment had come to cease hostilities, since Poland was now liquidated and Europe not yet effectively at war.

To Finnish steamers Martti-Ragnar and Walma were sunk by U-boats.
