Marking 80 years since the start of WWII, Tim Bouverie gives a compelling reappraisal of one of the most controversial episodes in British history. Appeasing Hitler is the exciting debut of a young historian who sweeps us through a period of history beginning with the advent of Hitler in 1933, the early days of the Third Reich to the beaches of Dunkirk. In September 1938, Neville Chamberlain announced that his visit to Hitler had averted a crisis and assured the nation of ‘peace in our time’. A year after returning from Munich, Germany invaded Poland and determined the fate of Europe. Bouverie charters the timeless lesson on the challenges of standing up to aggression and authoritarianism – and the calamity that results from failing to do so.
