On 8 October, after an initial period of military administration, Germany directly annexed western Poland and the former Free City of Danzig and placed the remaining block of territory under the administration of the newly established General Government.Chamberlain and his supporters believed war could be avoided and hoped Germany would agree to leave the rest of Poland alone.German hegemony over Central Europe was also at stake.The so-called Polish Corridor constituted land long disputed by Poland and Germany, and inhabited by a Polish majority.The Corridor had become a part of Poland after the Treaty of Versailles.Polish forces then withdrew to the southeast where they prepared for a long defence of the Romanian Bridgehead and awaited expected support and relief from France and the United Kingdom.While those two countries had pacts with Poland and had declared war on Germany on 3 September, in the end their aid to Poland was very limited.Many Germans also wanted the city of Danzig and its environs (together the Free City of Danzig) to be reincorporated into Germany. It had been separated from Germany after Versailles and made into the nominally independent Free City of Danzig.Hitler sought to use this as a reason for war, reverse these territorial losses, and on many occasions made an appeal to German nationalism, promising to "liberate" the German minority still in the Corridor, as well as Danzig.As the Wehrmacht advanced, Polish forces withdrew from their forward bases of operation close to the Polish–German border to more established lines of defence to the east.After the mid-September Polish defeat in the Battle of the Bzura, the Germans gained an undisputed advantage.
