Munich agreement

Quick Reference

‘Munich’ (the agreement signed by Neville Chamberlain and Adolf Hitler) has entered the English language as a synonym for weakness, and historians continue to debate whether it would have been wiser for Britain to have risked war rather than to require Czechoslovakia to surrender the Sudetenland to Hitler. At the time (30 September 1938), the commonest feeling in Britain was one of relief.
