The first 24 hours ?

Post by headwest » 19 Oct 2021 17:04

HI Everyone

I was wondering if there is a detailed analysis book on the first full 24 hours of the war, 1939 Sept 1, invasion of Poland, pref the German side, although both sides would be interesting

what i was really interested in is from midnight to midnight, that whole first day

from the 3:30 min before the attack, what were units doing, where were they, Did they know their first day goals, and then did they reach them?

from the attack then, til the end of the first day. what units made their goals, what they ran into, where the large scale but also small scale fights were?

Would be great to get a very precise route as well, i would someday like to go and trace some of the first day battles if possible

thanks so much

Sorry, meant to add, are there any surviving letters german troops might have written that details the mundane or nervousness, excitement? or journals? waiting for the attack to start?
