    Neither the British nor French were in a position to mobilize their forces to invade Germany in September, 1939.

    Also, there's no guarantee that had there been an Allied invasion of Germany in 1939 that it would have been successful.

    The Poles and French both had excellent armies and both were caught flat-footed by "Blitzkrieg" tactics while fighting on their own ground. A relatively green Anglo-French force attempting to cross the Rhine might have been decimated in the same way that the Anglo-French force to Norway was.
