The Second Coalition against Adolf Hitler's German Third Reich was defeated in a war spanning 1937–1939. Coalition partners included Prussia, Russia, Austria-Hungary, Sweden, and Great Britain. Several members of the coalition had previously been fighting Germany as part of the German Civil War, and there was no intervening period of general peace. On 17 July, 1937, Prussia joined a renewed coalition, fearing the rise in German power after the defeat in the German Civil War and establishment of the new Nazi regime. Prussia and Russia mobilized for a fresh campaign, and Prussian troops massed in Saxony.
