    History has judged Neville Chamberlain quite harshly Anytime a politician wants to attack his opponent for being soft on foreign policy, he ll usually invoke the coded language of Chamberlain and appeasement If only Churchill and the hardliners had been in charge from the start, some say, England and the Allies could have nipped Hitler in the bud long before he became a major threat.What this book highlights, however, is that Chamberlain and his policies were well in line with public sentime History has judged Neville Chamberlain quite harshly Anytime a politician wants to attack his opponent for being soft on foreign policy, he ll usually invoke the coded language of Chamberlain and appeasement If only Churchill and the hardliners had been in charge from the start, some say, England and the Allies could have nipped Hitler in the bud long before he became a major threat.What this book highlights, however, is that Chamberlain and his policies were well in line with public sentiment of the day Practically nobody wanted war except Hitler and most truly, if naively, believed Hitler would be satisfied if whatever latest demand was met And what one man sees as appeasement, another may simply see as diplomacy David Faber sets the record straight about what really happened in the years leading up to WWII, and just how Hitler and Germany played the rest of the world like a fiddle

    Excellent book that delves into the events leading up to Munich, starting with Bloomberg Fritsch Author meticulous researched Popular history seems to paint Lord Halifax as just a big of an appeaser as Chamberlin this books suggests that is not the case Lot of blame falls on Chamberlin but Daladier may be evenguilty.

    I had long felt that British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain was considered a weak and ineffective leader whose policy of appeasement with Adolph Hitler not only sacrificed the Czech nation to a German takeover, but also emboldened Hitler s further territorial expansions into east central Europe So rather than preventing an outbreak of war in Europe in 1938, the Chamberlain s appeasement policy only served to further strengthen Hitler politically and militarily Many had expressed the belief I had long felt that British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain was considered a weak and ineffective leader whose policy of appeasement with Adolph Hitler not only sacrificed the Czech nation to a German takeover, but also emboldened Hitler s further territorial expansions into east central Europe So rather than preventing an outbreak of war in Europe in 1938, the Chamberlain s appeasement policy only served to further strengthen Hitler politically and militarily Many had expressed the belief that had Chamberlain taken a tougher stand against Hitler s desire to expand into Czechoslovakia, that World War II would have either been prevented or muchlimited, saving millions of lives However, as is usually the case, there s often muchto the story than is generally understood David Faber s insightful book, Munich, 1938 , filled in the blanks behind Chamberlain s much discussed appeasement of Hitler and his takeover of Czechoslovakia Faber points out that Hitler s military expansion and plans to invade Czechoslovakia were already in place at the time of Chamberlain s meetings with Hitler He also explained that the French had an existing mutual defense treaty with Czechoslovakia, and how they were equally complicient in the abandonment of the Czech nation With German troop movement ready to move into Czechoslovakia, the acceptance of the idea of self determination for the German speaking Czech s, the previous acceptance by the Czech government to transfer of the Sudentenland to German control, the French and British recognized that the German takeover was a fait accompli Further, they both recognized that any threats of war had no affect on Hitler s plans, and there was no way they would be able to prevent the German takeover So with the takeover all but complete, and with no way to prevent it, Chamberlain in consultation with the French hoped that his negotiations would placate Hitler s desire for further expansion and bring, as he said, Peace with honor Peace for our time In hindsight, we clearly see the folly in this hope, but Faber provides a look at the background of the time, brings an number of interesting facts to light, and at least explains why Chamberlain held out this hope

    This is an excellent history of the policy of appeasement as practiced by the British and French in the years before WWII Faber does an excellent job of taking us through the years after WWI to set up both the rise of Hitler and the coming to power of Neville Chamberlain He goes into greater detail as his narrative gets into 1938 Perhaps one of the best features of this book is that it makes you very interested in a subject and time period that, if you have picked up this book, you probably t This is an excellent history of the policy of appeasement as practiced by the British and French in the years before WWII Faber does an excellent job of taking us through the years after WWI to set up both the rise of Hitler and the coming to power of Neville Chamberlain He goes into greater detail as his narrative gets into 1938 Perhaps one of the best features of this book is that it makes you very interested in a subject and time period that, if you have picked up this book, you probably think you know something about In fact, Faber s mission is to present to you by presenting contemporary accounts of either through newspaper interviews or letters or diaries the overwhelming popularity of appeasement at that time Faber is a very good writer concise and detailed, presenting the story in an imaginative way For example, he starts the book with Chamberlain s triumphal return to England after the Munich conference From the outset he makes clear that appeasement was what the people wanted Those who opposed it were in a very small club sometimes consisting of one man Churchill.I highly recommend this book It will give you a new perspective on a crucial period a period often evoked by present day politicans to justify aggressive action or even warfare They all say they want to avoid another Munich I doubt that many of them really know what happened there except for the fact that Hitler got what he wanted because England and France backed down This book will tell you what happened and why

    For those of you unfamiliar with the story in 1938, Hitler threatened to invade Czechoslovia, and the UK and France threatened that if Hitler invaded there would be war The British Prime Minister, Neville Chamberlain, tried to defuse the crisis by letting Germany have the majority German part of the country, and hoping that Hitler would leave the rest of the country alone Since Hitler took over all of Czechoslovokia just a few months later, the conventional wisdom is that Chamberlain s strate For those of you unfamiliar with the story in 1938, Hitler threatened to invade Czechoslovia, and the UK and France threatened that if Hitler invaded there would be war The British Prime Minister, Neville Chamberlain, tried to defuse the crisis by letting Germany have the majority German part of the country, and hoping that Hitler would leave the rest of the country alone Since Hitler took over all of Czechoslovokia just a few months later, the conventional wisdom is that Chamberlain s strategy of appeasement was naive, and that the UK should have gone to war in 1938 a year earlier than it actually did Faber s book is a blow by blow account of this crisis it feels very journalistic, in that Faber describes what British and German policymakers said, but does not try to analyze the policy issues on his own However, he seems to dislike Chamberlain and share the conventional wisdom But there is some ammunition in this book for revisionists Faber quotes one British official s view that it was difficult to see how we could effectively exercise any military pressure against Germany in time to save Czechoslovakia p 159 Another official stated No Government could possibly risk a war when our anti aircraft defenses are in so farcical a condition p 160 The French foreign minister apparently believed that neither France nor Great Britian were ready for war if war came in 1938 French and British towns would be wiped out and little or no retaliation would be possible p 276 It thus seems that appeasers thought they were in a no win situation if they sought to guarantee Czechoslovokia s security and the Nazis responded with war, World War II would have begun in 1938, and would have ended with the destruction of England and France By contrast, appeasement bought England extra time to rearm I am not sure they were wrong one extra year of war would have meant one year of war without the assistance of the Soviet Union or the United States since neither nation got involved in WW II until Germany invaded Russia in 1940, and Japan attacked the US in late 1941 On the other hand, a 1938 war would have meant that Germany had one less year to arm itself as well, and it is possible that if the UK had promised to go to war, Hitler would have backed down in 1938 I am not sure that the appeasers were wrong but it does seem that reasonable people could and did disagree

    Enlightening Chamberlain is hardly depicted as anything close to a person with whom one can either empathize or even like Though Faber does acknowledge the proximity of the rumblings of war in the 30s to the Armistice of 2018 and so can not be accused of ignoring that fact, he nevertheless from my personal vantage point fails to capture the horror that lingered and continued to possess yes, possess many the UK and soon to be Allied countries The remains of the War to end all wars Enlightening Chamberlain is hardly depicted as anything close to a person with whom one can either empathize or even like Though Faber does acknowledge the proximity of the rumblings of war in the 30s to the Armistice of 2018 and so can not be accused of ignoring that fact, he nevertheless from my personal vantage point fails to capture the horror that lingered and continued to possess yes, possess many the UK and soon to be Allied countries The remains of the War to end all wars was still very much with them, up to and beyond 1938 As if the death of sons, fathers, uncles, fiancee, friends, family, villages was bad enough, but there was the visible and invisible ubiquity of the survivors amputated limbs, dis figured faces and bodies, gassed lungs, tormenting ghosts and memories barred from public exposure due to the heartless unmerciful label of being one who Lacked Moral Fibre LMF Not to say that this posits justification for Chamberlain s seemingly cowardly appeasement policy, but it, most certainly, offers the grace of understanding while nevertheless in principled defiance and muscular disagreement

    Diplomatic manouevres If you want to read about the munich agreement and are interested in the diplomatic chicanery of 1938 then this is the book for you At times you want to yell at Mr chamberlain s naivety when dealing with hitler at other times you feel ashamed at the way this country appeased such a monster Well researched and straight to the point.

    The detail in this book show the reader exactly how dictatorships are allowed to grow and cause injury to others This book echos Martin Luther King saying, Most of the evil in the world is done by good people saying nothing.
