Hitler visits the front - Poland 1939.

On September 22 Hitler visited the Warsaw area. He returned to Zoppot, where he stayed during the following days..

Keitel recalled: My fifth recollection is of flying to an airfield and of proceeding thence across an army bridge over the Vistula, north of Warsaw, to the command post of the Second Army Corps artillery commander. From a vantage point in a church steeple northeast of Praga, a suburb of Warsaw on the Vistula's east bank, the latter was calling down artillery fire on the outer fortifications of Warsaw. It was here that the news reached Hitler that Colonel-General von Fritsch had died in action that morning at an infantry commander's headquarters, during an advance by the 12th Artillery Regiment.
