Appeasement..."Peace for our time"
Nothing but words.
Seyss-Inquart and Hitler in Vienna, March 1938
In 1938 Austria was annexed by the Nazis as England and the rest of the world ignored them.
From left to right: Chamberlain, Daladier, Hitler, Mussolini, and Ciano pictured before signing the Munich Agreement.
Later in 1938 an even more shameful event occurred, the Munich Agreement. Here the allied powers abandoned the Czechs in their time of need. We agreed to let the Nazis have their prized "Sudetenland". Germany would out-right invade Czechoslovakia another six months later, as Britain and the French were content to sit back and watch the Third Reich expand.
It was not until the Germans attacked Poland in 1939 that we decided to take a stand...But it was too late. Poland was no match for the might of the Wehrmacht. Several months after the fall of Poland Denmark and Norway fell under the ugly shadow of fascism. Not even the French, who constructed a defense-oriented technological terror known as "The Maginot Line", could stand up to power of a restored Germany. France was conquered and it soon capitulated to the Nazis. A new French state "Vichy France" was created in the south of France.
It is today that the Soviets have learned that Fascism is the enemy of mankind, for the Third Reich has just declared war on the so-called "workers paradise".
Appeasement has left Europe in this state. The world has been torn asunder. Fascism's cold grip clutches Europe as the strength of the allies wanes. Will the British Empire be able to recapture its glory? Or will the sun set on the empire, on democracy, and rise on the Third Reich and Fascism?
