Belgium Generalgouvernement

WWI Occupations

On 4 August 1914, Germany invaded Belgium to begin its offensive on the Western Front.  Most of Belgium was conquered by the first weeks of September 1914, when the lines on the western front settled into fairly stationary positions.

Those portions of Belgium occupied by Germany were organized administratively into the Belgium Generalgouvernement.  Germany issued overprinted Germania postage for use by civilians within the area.
