Neville Chamberlain - Peace In Our Time One of history's most infamous photographs: It was taken on September 30, 1938 at England's Heston Aerodrome. British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain has returned from a meeting with Adolf Hitler in Munich. As part of Chamberlain's appeasement policy to avert war, Chamberlain (and his French counterpart Edouard Daladier) had just agreed to Hitler's demand that the Sudetenland and Czechoslovakia be annexed into the German reich. Chamberlain is shown holding the document signed by Hitler that Chamberlain insisted would guarantee 'peace in our time.'

The history channel is constantly on at my house. The WWII fare must have stirred images of the disgraced Mr. Chamberlain.

On May 10, 1940, with German tanks rolling through western Europe, Chamberlain resigned as Bitish prime minister, citing ill health. Luckily for mankind Chamberlain was replaced by one of the most outspoken critics of appeasement--some no-nosense fellow named Winston Churchill.

Chamberlain died in November 1940.

Wasn't Churchill recommended because of his politics and stand on issues and tenacity at the time? Also, didn't he watch his daughter doing her job as an air raid warden or air battery officer in the evenings?

Must admit, he was the right guy for the job. The world is a better place for his contributions.

Churchill was likely chosen by the wartime parliament because he was regarded as a tough politician whose resolve was desperately needed in the spring of 1940 when things were looking very bleak for the Allies. Churchill also had military experience from the Boer War and as hs days as the head of the British Navy.

The biggest public park in my hometown is Winston Churchill Park. Churchill was truly one of the outstanding figures of the 20th century.

I just came across a great quote from Winston Churchill that applies to this post:

'An appeaser is someone who feeds a crocodile hoping it will eat him last.'
