Hi Steve,

I see. I thought you meant the French were going to supply the oil, which seemed curious as they had little or no production of their own.

The French also underwrote much of the cost of building the port of Gdynia as an alternative to Danzig.

Cheers,

Sid.

From my perspective whole discussion about Poland wanting war with Germany or not wanting it is a mistake. Hitler desired war with France to revenge for Great War and desired war with Soviet Union to destroy communism and establish Lebensraum. Poland took part in war on allied side but even if it stayed neutral or pro German it would not change a lot in the whole picture.

If there were no invasion of Germany over Poland in 1939 there were invasion of German over France erlier as it appeared and maybe also invasion over Russia earlier as it appeared (plus probably polish contribution in it). That is whole difference.
