How did the policy of appeasement affect World War 2? Policy of Appeasement Here are opinions: Appeasement allowed the British and French to ignore an imminent threat and produced a fake peace which led to many deaths. Appeasement led Hitler to believe that no one would oppose his expansionist policies.
In short, if Europe had abandoned its appeasement policy by WWII probably could have been averted. Britain, already economicaly damaged and knowing that a war was impossible to avoid, tried to buy vital time.
She had stepped up production ao arms but was still unable to realistically fight another great war in a quarter of a century. What Chamberlain brought back from his talks was time and it proved the balance between winning an unprovoked war. England under the premiership of Chamberlain, I believe, made the correct deision to appease Germany, a weakend, abused country deeply buried in debt after its ill-treatment in a post treaty of Versailles Europe.
Slowly climbing out of debt, England had not the economy, or gun power to rsk and survive an all-out war with any country. Chamberlain also upheld beliefs about peace and felt that diplomacy, not mindless slaughter, was the answer in dealing with a responsible leader, as Hitler was to his German people.
Jews and other minorities were not threatened at the time. Hitler was not the Did the appeasement policy make the of evil, and should not have been treated as such, at that time. Letting Germany increase its navy, army, and air force, reoccupy the Rhineland, and give it the Czech Sudatenland all helped to strengthen the German postition in Europe.
It would lead to Germany taking over most of Europe with relative ease in a matter of months. They let Hitler rebuild the German army and navy, occupy the Sudetenland and Czechoslovakia. If they had put up a fight at the beginning, perhaps Hitler would not have kept pushing until the situation turned into a World War.
Originally Appeasement was a positive concept, it had started in after the Treaty of Versailles. During the 's Britain had control however by 's Hitler had seized the intiative.
Appeasement was apopulare concept especially among British policy, there were several reasons as to why Neville Chamberlain favoured this policy- people in Britain during the early 's had voted against war and favoured collective security, this could also be down the economic problems that had arised after the Great Depression such as high unemployment which the treasury had wanted to improve rather than muntions armament.
Due to the econonmic problems this led to military weakness as the country virtually had no airforce and the navy was insufficient as was the army.
In light of all these problems Neville Chamberlain had seen the effects of Hitler and the Nazis however he had believed that by getting Hitler to sign compromise documents that this would successfully bind Hitler into keeping his promises.
Chamberlain persisted with appeasement well after it had been crushed i. However in doing so he had stepped up rearmament to give him more time.
So did Hitler take advantage of Chamberlain's naivity? Subject to evidence it can be almost certain to say the answer is yes, the evidence is seen clearly right from the remilitiarization of the Rhineland up to the Munich Conference. Historians say that Chamberlain appeased Hitler in order to avoid war, others say that he was propelling Europe into war by basically allowing Hitler to do as he pleased.
As Hitler prepared fo invasion of Poland, Chamberlain had no choice but to issue an ultimatum to Hitler over Poland- invade Poland and risk war with Britain or step back from Poland and reintroduce peace? Hitler did not think that Britain would go through with its 'ultimatum' so invaded Poland sept The policy of appeasement predates Chamberlain's premiership.
Already in the early s many British politicians believed that the Treaty of Versailles was too harsh and were, in principle, willing to make adjustments in favour of Germany.
Inwhen Hitler came to power, the official British policy was multilateral disarmament and talks were in progress to try to achieve this. Britain and France were caught out at the time. It's not clear how well informed Baldwin and Chamberlain really were about the intentions of the Nazi regime.
The ultimate irony is that in many respects the policy of appeasement continued well into WWII. Britain and an even more reluctant France declared war on Germany supposedly in order to uphold Polish sovereignty - but did absolutely nothing to give any practical assistance to Poland.
Viewed coldly, the declaration of war in bears the hallmarks of grandstanding, of an empty gesture. In many ways it was a barely rational act Among some British grandees there was talk of making peace - until the Nazis bombed civilian areas of London in September Britain never had much influence in Eastern Central Europe.
It was an area where Britain could only have acted by proxy. There's a widespread belief that all Britain needed was to "do something", but very few are realistic about what that something should have been.Stars like Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin were established enough to survive the rock-and-roll revolution, but the arrival of Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry et al., in the lates did no favors for most of the artists who occupied the top of the pre-rock-and-roll pop charts.
