The Saar Offensive was a French ground operation into Saarland on the German 1st Army defence sector in the very earlier stages of World War II, from 7 to 16 September 1939. The purpose of the attack was to assist Poland, which was then under attack. The all-out assault was to have been carried out by roughly 40 divisions, including one armored division, three mechanised divisions, 78 artillery regiments and 40 tank battalions. The offensive was stopped and the French forces eventually withdrew amid a German counter-offensive on 17 October.
