World War Ii: The Price of Empire

The Phony War

Season 1, Episode 2 of 13

The European story continues with the invasion of Poland and the irresistible casus belli that forced even the most resistant of the powers into a declaration of war. The appeasing Prime Minister (Chamberlain) falls to be replaced by Winston Churchill. Now hardly remembered military action and early naval encounters characterize a war that, in the West, resembles skirmishing - in the East Japan has suffered major reverses with Chinese victories at Changsha and Guangxi.
