On September 1, 1939, Germany launched their invasion into Poland marking the beginning of World War II. Among those units invading Poland was that of Lieutenant Hans-Albrecht Herzner. But when he phoned his superior boasting of his captured objectives, he was met with a different reply than he expected. Because it was the early morning of August 26th, one week before the official invasion of Poland. Lieutenant Hans-Albrecht Herzner and his 70 soldiers accidentally nearly started the Second World War one week too early.
