The "Phony War" ended April 1940. However, many Canadians were not sent before 1942. What did the ones that were sent with the 1st Division Canadaian infrantry do in Britain until 1942?

    I`ve already been on google but none of these site seem to tell me what the 1st Division Canadian Infrantry did during the phony war. They seem to say they didn't do much and skip to 1942.

    The second Google site states:

    "The 1st Canadian Infantry Division although having been sent to England from Halifax, Nova Scotia in 1939 wasn't thrust into the war until three years later when it arrived in Sicily as part of the British Eighth Army. In England it's primary function was being shifted back and forth around the country to provide proof to the Germans that England was able to defend itself from invasion.

    Thank You Ms.Sue

    I have one more question. I want to say that Germany attacked Norway and Denmark in April 1940 but I want to include Blitzkrieg in my sentence somehow.Would this sound right:

    Germany attacked Norway and Denmark in April 1940 using the Blitzkrieg technique.

    Is there a better way of writing this?

    You're welcome.

    It's o.k. But I suggest you say:

    Germany attacked Norway and Denmark in April 1940 using Blitzkrieg tactics.
