Prior to the outbreak of the Second World War, hostilities between Germany and Great Britain arose due to deteriorating Anglo-German relations and the rise of Hitler's influence in German-Polish discussions. On 1 September 1939, Germany invaded Poland after having staged several false flag border incidents as a pretext to initiate the attack. The United Kingdom responded with an ultimatum to Germany to cease military operations, and on 3 September, after the ultimatum was ignored, France, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand declared war on Germany.
