German soldiers in Nazi occupied Poland fool around for the camera. Written across the uniform trousers of the soldier in the foreground is, “1939. Western Front”. Possibly a pun on the fact whilst France and the UK had declared war on Germany in September 1939, no act of overt military aggression against Germany began until the following year. The Germans mockingly called this inactivity of the Allies der Sitzkrieg(“The Sitting War”). Poland. September 1939.
