The four powers agreed to the annexation of the Czechoslovak borderland areas named the Sudetenland , where more than 3 million people, mainly German speakers, lived. Hitler announced it was his last territorial claim in Europe. Germany had started low-intensity undeclared war on Czechoslovakia on 17 September In reaction, the United Kingdom and France on 20 September formally asked Czechoslovakia to cede its territory to Germany, which was followed by Polish territorial demands brought on 21 September and Hungarian on 22 September. Poland also moved its army units towards its common border with Czechoslovakia and conducted an unsuccessful attack on 23 September in the area of Zaolzie. An emergency meeting of the main European powers — not including Czechoslovakia, although their representatives were present in the town, or the Soviet Union , an ally to both France and Czechoslovakia — took place in Munich, Germany, on 29—30 September An agreement was quickly reached on Hitler's terms, being signed by the leaders of Germany, France, Britain, and Italy.
There are many different cause for World War II. The Treaty of Versailles was a complete and almost a total failure due to the distaste of many of the allied powers. Here we have Japanese militarism. Japanese militarism spread rapidly throughout Japan, being it is that Japan has an emperor but at this time the military had more of a say than the crowned emperor. Next the politacal takeover of Hitler, because we all know that the takeover of Hitler in Germany contributed greatly to the war. During the s, attempts were made to achieve a stable peace.
Munich Agreement , September 30, , settlement reached by Germany , Great Britain , France , and Italy that permitted German annexation of the Sudetenland , in western Czechoslovakia. After his success in absorbing Austria into Germany proper in March , Adolf Hitler looked covetously at Czechoslovakia, where about three million people in the Sudetenland were of German origin. Moreover, disruptive political activities inside Czechoslovakia had been underway since as early as October , when Konrad Henlein founded the Sudetendeutsche Heimatfront Sudeten-German Home Front. By May it was known that Hitler and his generals were drawing up a plan for the occupation of Czechoslovakia. The Czechoslovaks were relying on military assistance from France, with which they had an alliance. As Hitler continued to make inflammatory speeches demanding that Germans in Czechoslovakia be reunited with their homeland, war seemed imminent.

As he disembarked from the aircraft, he held aloft a piece of paper, which contained the promise that Britain and Germany would never go to war with one another again.
To what extent was the failure of appeasement primarily responsible for the outbreak of World War II? A value of the origin is that Fest was born into a family in which opposed the Hitler regime, for example, the family refused to make Fest join the Hitler Youth. Fest is therefore able to provide a very informative, critical and emotional overview of Hitler, which affects his view on appeasement and thereby helps me to further explore the controversy of it. As he is therefore intentionally discussing and evaluating the impact appeasement had on the outbreak of World War Two, I can perfectly refer to his argument during my investigation. A limitation of the origin is that, although Fest had access to a lot of newly published documents, he still had slightly limited access to documents concerning appeasement because some were only published after he published his book and thesis.
The lesson of Munich , in international relations , refers to the appeasement of Adolf Hitler at the Munich Conference in September The policy of appeasement underestimated Hitler's ambitions by believimg that enough concessions would secure a lasting peace. The foreign policy of British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain has become inextricably linked with the events of the Munich Crisis and the policy of appeasement and has resonated through the following decades as a parable of diplomatic failure. Although appeasement, which is conventionally defined as the act of satisfying grievances by concessions with the aim of avoiding war, was once regarded as an effective and even honourable strategy of foreign policy, the term has since the Munich Conference symbolised cowardice, failure and weakness.
The article examines the development of the crisis manifestations of the Versailles system on the eve of World War II. Special attention is paid to how and under what circumstances the preparation and signing of the Munich Agreement took place. This led to a decrease in the stability of the Versailles system. The manifestations of the reaction of the great powers to the aggressive policy of Berlin are analyzed and attention is focused on the fact that the policy of appeasement was erroneous and led to the aggravation of the Versailles system crisis in the late 30s XX century. This study emphasizes that as a result of the policy of appeasement, the balance of forces on the continent changes dramatically, and the signing of the Munich Agreement in September was decisive in the development of the Versailles system crisis and determined the beginning of the collapse of this model of international relations. It was stated that the Western democracies did not understand the essence of dictatorial regimes, and such a misunderstanding led not only to the collapse of the international system, but also to the beginning of the World War II.

During these 50 years, the agreements became deeply ingrained into the Western political discourse. They were often evoked on anniversaries and other commemorative occasions for their historical and emotional value. Many politicians also utilized them as mental shortcuts. While many historians rightfully criticized this reductionist and sometimes revisionist approach, the ubiquity of the discourse throughout the Cold War demonstrates the inherent appeal of heuristics under the conditions of uncertainty.
