Polish war mongering in 1938

Postby Depth Charge » 3 weeks 3 days ago (Thu Aug 31, 2017 10:21 am)

Do mainstream documentaries and books forget to mention the Polish invasion of, and occupation of, Czechoslovakia? Usually with a documentary, remembrance piece or book on WW2, we get the usual foreplay with seedy music about how Germany warmed up by invading Austria, then Czechoslovakia.

But they seem to neglect to mention the Polish invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1938. They annexed an area of 801.5 km² with a population of 227,399 people. Even Wikipedia, guarded 24/7 by 'enforcers', acknowledges this;

The Polish also delivered an ultimatum to Lithuania, to formally relinquish Vilnius. This was a bald act of aggression that curiously is expunged from contemporary western history, with all events pertaining to 1938 instead focusing on German actions.

I also wonder, what other territorial ambitions did Poland have at this time?
