On 9 November 1938 Meyer was promoted to SS-Obersturmführer (First Lieutenant) and saw action during the invasion of Poland, invasion of Holland and invasion of France, winning the Iron Cross second class in November 1939. Following the fall of France Mayer became the commander of 10. Kompanie (which was later renamed as the 12. Kompanie) and in November 1940 was promoted to SS-Hauptsturmführer (Captain).

Famous quotes containing the words early, war and/or campaigns:

    We can slide it
    Rapidly backwards and forwards: we call this
    Easing the spring. And rapidly backwards and forwards
    The early bees are assaulting and fumbling the flowers:
    They call it easing the Spring.
    Henry Reed (1914–1986)

    Thus do I want man and woman to be: the one fit to wage war and the other fit to give birth, but both fit to dance with head and feet.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    That food has always been, and will continue to be, the basis for one of our greater snobbisms does not explain the fact that the attitude toward the food choice of others is becoming more and more heatedly exclusive until it may well turn into one of those forms of bigotry against which gallant little committees are constantly planning campaigns in the cause of justice and decency.
    Cornelia Otis Skinner (1901–1979)
