[appeasement and World War II]Audiobook CD - 2009
On September 30, 1938, British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain flew back to London from his meeting at Munich with the German chancellor Adolf Hitler and was greeted with a hero's welcome. As he paused on the aircraft steps, he held aloft the piece of paper that contained the promise that Britain and Germany would never go to war with each other again. In this important reappraisal of the extraordinary events of seventy years ago, acclaimed historian David Faber traces the key incidents leading up to the meeting at Munich and its immediate aftermath. He describes Lord Halifax's ill-fated visit to Hitler; Chamberlain's secret negotiations with Mussolini; and London, we watch Chamberlain make one supreme effort after another to appease Hitler. Packed with narrative negotiations and scandals upon which the world's fate would rest.
