Neville Chamberlain and Munich: Umbrella Man, Part Three
Spying Zeppelins and Fighter Plane Duels...a Fainting Leader and a Final Stand A third and final look at Neville Chamberlain and the Munich analogy. In part one, we've used WWI to 'beat up' on the Munich analogy, in part two we used the events of Munich itself. In Part Three, we hopefully show how the events of 1939 and 1940, including the post-Munich diplomacy and war and the Battle of Britain put Chamberlain's actions in context.
