Berchtesgaden Agreement

Welcomed as a hero by the royal family, he was invited to the balcony of Buckingham Palace before submitting the deal to the British Parliament. The generally positive reaction quickly responded in the negative, despite the royal sponsorship. However, there was resistance from the beginning. Clement Attlee and the Labour Party rejected the deal in alliance with two Conservative MPs, Duff Cooper and Vyvyan Adams, who had previously been seen as a tough and reactionary element in the Conservative Party. Six months later, in March 1939, German troops captured the rest of Czechoslovakia. Poland seemed to be the most likely victim of Nazi aggression and Chamberlain made a deal with the Poles to defend them in Germany. Hitler did not believe that Britain would go to war because of Poland, after not doing so because of Czechoslovakia. In September 1939, he sent his soldiers to Poland. On the same day, Britain declared war on Germany.

Hitler told the ambassador: “My good friend, Benito Mussolini, asked me to postpone the marching orders of the German army for twenty-four hours, and I agreed. This was obviously not a concession, since the date of the invasion was set for October 1, 1938. [41] In an interview with Chamberlain, Lord Perth Mussolini thanked Chamberlain and Chamberlain`s request that Mussolini participate on September 29 in a four-member conference from Britain, France, Germany and Italy in Munich to resolve the Sudetenland problem before the 14:00 deadline. . .
