Munich Agreement

Signed on September 30, 1938, the Munich Agreement was concluded between Great Britain, France, Nazi Germany, and Fascist Italy less than a year before the outbreak of World War II. The agreement allowed Germany to annex Sudetenland, an area of Czechoslovakia that was home to ethnic Germans, without interference. The agreement was the result of an appeasement policy pursued by Britain and France. It isolated Czechoslovakia and paved the way for eventual German occupation of the entire country.
