    In this universe, on 1 September 1939, Falangist Poland attacked the German Republic, triggering the Second World War. What had happened to prompt Poland to do this?

    Some lunatic fascist in Poland decides that the SPD lead government in Berlin is controlled by Jews backing armed resistance by their Polish co-religionists?

    The Laval-Beck Pact, partitioning Germany between the French Commune and the Third Polish Commonwealth.

    Why would a frano/ polish aggression against Germany become a world war ?
    Maybe USSR will help Germany

    Help Germany? No way. Attack Poland? Sure, but they would do it in order to conquer it, not to help Germany.

    Balance of Power, maybe? Ie, the British remember that France had been THE ENEMY for centuries before the ascension of the German Empire, grow concerned about France trying to pull another Napoleon and put the rest of Europe under French boots through military conquest and occupation, and decide that it's necessary to intervene?

    Of course not to help them, but both wouldn't mind returning to the 1914 German-Russia border.
