Bad acting combined with low budget and portraying the enemies as idiots = awesome result.

Re: Blitzkrieg Unleashed: Poland 1939

Such a question about this data asked on AHF: It have been deducted, losses 1-4 september? Nope: "(...) And what is most important - the report shows in facts not headcounts / personnel strength data from 4 September, but rather last known data, which could be gathered from armies by Unit I. of the ...

Not speaking Polish, that was ruled out, so I had to rely on accounts in English or translated into German. There are masses of books (...) on the September campaign in Polish. I'm surprised th...

Re: Did 1st Gebirgs-Division force Lwów to surrender?

Apparently veteran of the defence of Lwow in 1939: He mentions gen. Januszajtis (who was in Lwow in September 1939), capitulation of Lwow to the Soviets, the Soviets releasing ordinary POWs as was agreed, his return home, being arrested by NKVD in November, etc.: http://www.historydocumented.com/200...
