And Hitler was a great admirer of Pilsudski, even making a point to post an Honor Guard at his grave after the Nazi invasion of Poland.

Which begs the question, What if Pilsudski had lived in 1939? What course would they had taken with regards to Poland. Hitler knew of Pilsudski’s hatred of the Russians and might have tried to make a deal with him.

Pilsudski would not have given up Danzig and the corridor. That would have meant land-locking Poland and forcing Poles under German rule. Then again, who knows.
