Correct Answer - Option 4 : 27 September 1930: Warsaw falls and Poland surrenders
Year Events
19 July 1940
  • Adolf Hitler today addressed an "appeal to reason" to Great Britain to avert "destruction of a great world empire," but he made it clear that rejection would mean an attack with all of the forces at the command of the Axis powers.
29 June 1940: France surrenders
  • In the spring of 1940, Vidkun Quisling travelled to Berlin to meet with Nazi command and plan the German conquest of his country.
  • On April 9, the combined German forces attacked without warning, and by June 10 Hitler had conquered Norway and driven all Allied forces from the country.
29 June 1940
  • A military hero during World War I, Petain was appointed vice-premier of France in May 1940 to boost morale in a country crumbling under the force of the Nazi invasion.
  • Instead, Petain arranged an armistice with the Nazis.
  • The armistice, signed by the French on June 22, went into effect on June 25, and more than half of France was occupied by the Germans. Hence, it is incorrectly matched.
  • In July, Petain took office as “chief of state” at Vichy, a city in unoccupied France. The Vichy government under Petain collaborated with the Nazis, and French citizens suffered on both sides of the divided nation. In 1942, Pierre Laval, an opportunistic French fascist and dutiful Nazi collaborator, won the trust of Nazi leader Adolf Hitler, and the elderly Petain became merely a figurehead in the Vichy regime.
27 September 1930
  • On September 27, 1939, 140,000 Polish troops are taken prisoner by the German invaders as Warsaw surrenders to Hitler’s army.
  • The Poles fought bravely but were able to hold on for only 26 days.
  • Hence, it is not correctly matched, it is year 1939 and not 1930.
