Then Germany renewed it's Blitzkrieg. It started attacking Denmark and Norwayy in April 1940. It was an extremely successful plan that used surprise, speed, and massive power to quickly overwhelm the enemy. Germans used tanks, also known as "German Panzers", to crash through enemy lines. Soldiers would parachute into enemy's territory from the skies, destroying transportation and communication links. Due to the Blitzkrieg tactic, Germany quickly conquered Denmark and Norway, and right afterwards attacked the Neterlands, Luxembourg, and Belgium.
Evacuation of Dankirk
Just after a few days of launchung an attack on France through Belgium, German panzers reached the french Port of Dunkirk. where 400000 allied soldiers were trapped.
If the Allied troops surrendered, Britan would have lost the war for losing so many of it's soldiers. They had to find a way to escape before the Germans captured the town.
England started to round up every boat capable of navigating the English channel to rescue it's soldiers. It took a couple of days for England to evacuate the Port of Dunkirk successfully.
They wereable to save 30000 Men.

with the declration of war in September 1939 the Allies ( Britan, France, and commonwealth countries) started prepearing for the war by orgnizing their forses. The Axis were: Germany,Italy, and Japan. Allied troops were immediately stationed along France's border with Gmany. However, for 7 months from 1939 to April 1940 nobody made any moves. This period became known as the "Phoney war".
