Notes

: Despite the propaganda image of Germany's armored forces rolling to an easy victory over Poland, the first "blitzkrieg" revealed problems with the victors' plans, equipment and tactics. For example, large numbers of vehicles using narrow roads created tremendous traffic jams. Note 2.) Picture caption: "Die freudige Erfüllung der ungeheuren Anforderung, die während des blitzartigen Vormarsches an unsere Truppen aller Waffengattungen gestellt werden, dokumentiert am deutlichsten die Disziplin der deutschen Wehrmacht. Auf unserem Bild eine ,,Ablösung an der Front" unter fröhlichen Zurusen." Note 3.) Title translates German picture caption
