The invasion of Poland by Russia was the preceived beginning of the end for the German war effort. Poland was defended by Germany, which, with its military preoccupied with other wars, was defeated by the massive Russian offensive. This defeat led to the German withdrawal of troops from Canada, and the reinstitution of the German Wehrmacht by Dominik Müller. Germany entered a state of rapid military preparation and advancement to fight the inevitable invasion that was to come. The draft was reinstated in Germany and the size and effectiveness of the military grew rapidly after this defeat due to extensive reform of techniques and strategy. Of course, this was in response to the power of the Russian military, which had never before been seen in history. The fall of Poland gave Russia a strategic advantage over neighboring Germany, having troops stationed in the territory of Denmark already.
