Saturday September 23rd

Nothing. Warsaw still holding out.

No major engagement on the Western Front.

General Von Fritsch announced to have been killed in Poland. His relatives will doubtless be highly gratified by the state funeral* he will receive by order of Hitler.

*There is film footage of the state funeral held on 26 September 1939 at the start of a newsreel that has been posted online by the US Holocaust Memorial Museum.
