Neville Chamberlain Announces the Munich Agreement Ca. 1938Unknown - 1938
In September 1938, British prime minister Neville Chamberlain and French premier Edouard Daladier met with Italian dictator Benito Mussolini and German chancellor Adolf Hitler in Munich, Germany, to negotiate Germany's claim to a disputed area of Czechoslovakia known as the Sudetenland. Chamberlain and Daladier agreed to allow Hitler to claim the territory on the condition that he refrain from conquering any further territory. Chamberlain called the outcome of the Munich Conference a "prelude to a larger settlement in which all Europe may find peace." A year later, Hitler violated the terms of the agreement by invading Poland, and Britain declared war soon afterward.
