On 3 September 1939 Great Britain and France declared war on Nazi Germany, following the Wehrmacht’s invasion of Poland. What followed was the Phoney War: Eight months of preparations, evacuations, uncertainty and very little combat. With extensive archive footage from both sides of the channel, a fascinating account of the collective deep breath before war commenced.
