Hitler Tells Military Commanders that Czechoslovakia Invasion Coming

Adolf Hitler, 1925

Adolf Hitler informs his military commanders that the invasion of Czechoslovakia is on.

Hitler signs the directive ("Case Green") which states:

"It is my unalterable decision to smash Czechoslovakia by military action in the near future. It is the business of the political leadership to await or bring about the suitable moment from a political and military point of view."

Field Marshall Wilhelm Keitel explains to others what "near future" means: "Green's execution must be assured by October 1, 1938, at the latest."
