On this day in 1939, Germany’s invasion of Poland sparks another world war. In a statement to the German people, Hitler exhorted violent nationalism:

German defense forces will carry on the battle for the honor of the living rights of the re-awakened German people with firm determination.

I expect every German soldier, in view of the great tradition of eternal German soldiery, to do his duty until the end.

Remember always in all situations you are the representatives of National Socialist Greater Germany!

Long live our people and our Reich!

Berlin, Sept. 1, 1939.
Adolf Hitler

In fewer than six years, although at the cost of tens of millions of lives, the thousand-year Reich would surrender unconditionally.

It’s the birthday of famed author Edgar Rice Burroughs:

1875 – Edgar Rice Burroughs Born
On this date the author of the Tarzan book series was born in Chicago, Ill. Burroughs was educated all around the Midwest. His mid-west ties are seen often in his books. In chapter 27 of “Tarzan of the Apes”, Burroughs depicts Tarzan saving Jane from a forest fire in Wisconsin. [Source: Literature.org]

Here’s the Tuesday game from Puzzability:

This Week’s Game — August 31-September 4
Sound Bites
We’ve gone to pieces over this one. For each day this week, we started with two rhyming one-syllable words. The day’s clue gives, for each of those words, a shorter word that appears as a chunk within it. Please note that for the two words to rhyme, every sound from the first vowel sound onward must be identical, as the “-ime” sound in the example below.
Example:
LIMB, THY
Answer:
Climb, thyme
What to Submit:
Submit both words, in the same order as the clue (as “Climb, thyme” in the example) for your answer.
