Gurerians tactics are still mused today.

Hitler has ordered German advance to halt, but Guderian's panzers are storming forward anyway; he claims it is a "reconnaissance in force".

but Dave said that Hitler had only just invaded Poland.

In fact he invaded in 1939 ..Hitler not Dave.

Now I know Dave is trying to be a patronising twonk but history is history.

Can someone explain in a decent manner please.

We're in teh Battle ( :D ) fior France at the minute, Poland and Norway have already fallen, go read the time line.

I expecvt poland fell in WW2 tweets from 1939 and Pearl harbour will be next year.

I didn't realise we invaded Iceland to stop the Germans doing the same.

Aye propaganda is a great thing, we along with our fellow allies also invaded Russia in WWI in 1918
