The War After "The War to End All Wars"

Jim DeRosa reminds us that today it is the 70th anniversary of the start of WWII.

At 0445 (0245 GMT) 1 September 1939 a German battleship Schleswig-Holstein opened fire at point-blank range on a Polish fort on Westerplatte peninsula near Gdansk.These were the first shots fired in WWII.
