I listened to an article about Neville Chamberlain on Radio 4 last week in which is was asked, was war really inevitable? Was the policy of Appeasement really the only option open to Chamberlain and the other European leaders? Seventy years on this is still an important question because if History teaches us anything it is that History repeats itself.
Update: There's an interesting article on the BBC website today discussing the legacy of Chamberlain and the reputation he gained (fairly or not depending on your point of view) as a result of the Munich Accord and its subsequent failure.
Thanks for the BBC link. There was an interesting interview on there t'other day with the last survivor of Hitler's bunker, but the BBC's 'search' facility is inept. If I found it, I'll let you know.ReplyDelete
