    "Over 260 photographs taken in the summer of 1939, have gone on display at the Museum of the Second World War in Gdańsk, Poland.

    The unique photographs taken by pre-war photographer Henryk Poddębski, show key elements of the Polish army participating in war-manoeuvres just weeks before Hitler invaded.

    Karol Nawrocki, head of the museum, said: “The photographs that make up Mr Poddębski’s exhibition, show an army which we will never see again.

    “An army, which led a heroic fight from September 1 1939, was defeated and driven all across Europe’s fronts to fight for a free Europe, a unified and democratic Europe and a strong and independent Poland.”
    Never seen before WW2 photos reveal Polish army on the eve of Hitler’s invasion
