Appeasement Policy

Prior to World War II, Great Britain and France pursued an appeasement policy toward Nazi Germany during Hitler’s wave of territorial expansion in the 1930s. British and French diplomats made territorial and political concessions to the Nazis to avoid open military conflict. The appeasement policy has been blamed for emboldening Hitler to make further claims and hastening the coming of World War II, particularly following the Munich Pact of September 1938.
