Tim Bouverie Road to War -Warwick Words History Festival

On a wet afternoon in September 1938, Neville Chamberlain stepped off an aeroplane, waved a piece of paper at the waiting crowd and said that his visit to Adolf Hitler had averted the greatest crisis in recent memory.

‘Peace for our time’.

A year later, Germany invaded Poland.

Using newly discovered sources and deep archival research, Tim Bouverie has written a compelling new narrative of the disastrous years of indecision, failed diplomacy and parliamentary infighting that enabled Nazi domination of Europe: an unforgettable portrait of the ministers, aristocrats and amateur diplomats who, through their actions (and inaction), shaped Britain’s policy and determined the fate of Europe.
