Hitler was the main aggressor during 1939 who everyone appeased to, who is infamously known for his rise to power, his persecution of Jews, and his attacks on the world to dominate, that killed so many. Neville Chamberlain, the British Prime Minister, believed in the policy of appeasement and appeased Hitler at the Munich Conference which eventually lead to the start of World War II.

Throughout the 1930s, Adolf Hitler rose to power and successfully became chancellor of Germany by 1933. Throughout his course as a leader, many foreign policies were planned and achieved, debatably imposed for pre-war requisites and expansion of Nazi Germany in Eastern Europe, more known as Lebensraum. Such expansions intimidated Western European countries, most importantly, the United Kingdom. By November 1937, Neville Chamberlain’s cabinet has been in office for only a brief 6 months, while Hitler had risen to an extent where he has achieved nearly absolute dictatorship and totalitarianism in Nazi Germany. Hitler began to pursue his aggressive program and act of expansion against the will and power of the British, believing them to be an envisaged and possible alliance.
The policy of appeasement was the best rational decision that England could make in 1938 in an attempt to avert war. Neville Chamberlain and Lord Halifax of England believed that there was no other alternative that would stop Hitler from eventually starting a war (Documents A and E). The inevitability of an impending war led people to believe that there was no other option than satisfying Hitler with territory and power in an effort to postpone the upcoming war for as long as they could. The possibility of repeating the violence and atrocities conducted during World War I frightened the people of Britain into trying to appease Hitler by giving him what he wanted. Thus, the most reasonable option in avoiding war was the appeasement policy, even

In his speech in defence of the Munich Agreement, Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain reassures everyone in persuading them that the right decision had been made: to hand over Czechoslovakia to Germany. ‘Time was essence’ he reminded and it was crucial to reach the right decision as soon as possible.

Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain mainly highlights in his speech that ‘the real triumph’ was the fact that all 4 great powers had succeeded in coming together and making a decision without violence, fighting and chaos.
November 8th of 1923 marked the first of many major political advancements regarding the NSDAP. It was then that Adolf Hitler’s Sturmabteilung troops surrounded the Bürgerbräukeller building during a political meeting, when he burst into the beer hall, jumped on a table, and fired a pistol, during which he shouted “The National Revolution has begun!”. Ernst Rohm, the leader of the S.A., led the other units in a takeover of Munich’s army headquarters, or a putsch.

Government policies dramatically changed in the 1920s which were a consequence to the Treaty of Versailles since the period was so soon after the war and many of the policies concerned post-war aspects. The Allies have varied views and in many cases Britain is the country to be in a different position in terms of the perceived aftermath of the Treaty of Versailles. The Dawes Plan in 1924 was a policy agreed by the Allies to cut the total amount of reparations and allow Germany a realistic time frame to repay the amounts owed to them. It also proposed the removal of French troops from the Ruhr in Germany as the reparations which they were demanding payment of were no longer needed to be paid. The reparation put Germany in a very vulnerable and weak position within Europe and opened them to the feared threat of communism from Soviet Russia.

The Treaty of Versailles which was composed in 1919, was an attempt to come to an understanding between the winning powers on what the punishment and consequences for the defeated powers would be.
