Tim Bouverie’s excellent book ‘Appeasing Hitler: Chamberlain, Churchill and the Road to War’ will be published in mid April and will no doubt receive much well-deserved review coverage in the media. In this remarkable debut, Bouverie tells the story of the pre-war years of diplomacy, indecision, infighting and political brinkmanship with intelligence and flair. An extraordinary tale of turning deaf ears to the experts who understood what was afoot (our ambassadors in Berlin, for instance, recalled for articulating the unwelcome) and of democracies failing to grapple with the gravest of threats. Bouverie considers the personalities and the pacifist mood of the country with sensitivity and pathos, and we look forward very much to hearing him talk about his book which so powerfully resonates with our political present.
