September 1, and Britain, France, and Canada, declared
war on Germany on September 3. The Soviet Union joined
the war on Germany's side on September 17, with the
Soviet Invasion of Poland from the east. The
German Invasion of Poland (called Operation Case

Two in Asia is generally considered to have begun with
the Japanese Invasion of China in 1937).
