Hitler visits the front - Poland 1939.
On September 6, 1939 Hitler went to Schwetz and Graudenz and the Tucheler Heide by car. There he met General Guderian, who was CO of the XIX AK (Mot). The Army Corps' KTB stated:
At 11:30 hours the Army Corps’ Commanding Officer, the CoS and the Ia travelled from Lubiewo to the junction located 1 kilometer south of Plewno (Julienhof) there they will meet the Führer. At 14:30 hours Führer’s arrival, then escorted by General Guderian (Army Corps Commander) moved along the road Plewno – Schwetz (Swiecie) up to the bridge on the Vistula at Graudenz.
Along the way, Adolf Hitler saw a destroyed polish artillery unit and asked if it was done by the Stukas, the answer was by our panzers. At 17:00 hours travel back to Plewno and farewell. AH came back to Groß Born.
