Appeasing Hitler

Most of us are familiar with Neville Chamberlain and the paper signed by Mr Hitler that guaranteed “Peace for our time”, but how did Britain come to be so easily fooled by the machinations of the Nazi hierarchy? Using newly discovered sources and deep archival research, Tim Bouverie gives a compelling new narrative of the disastrous years of indecision, failed diplomacy and parliamentary infighting that enabled Hitler’s domination of Europe. It’s an unforgettable portrait of the ministers, aristocrats – including members of the Royal Family - and amateur diplomats who, through their actions and inaction, shaped Britain’s policy and determined the fate of Europe.

Illustrated talk.
