Ashford 4: – Week 3 – Discussion 2

The End of Isolation

  

 Background: In 1938, in Munich, the British Prime Minister Neville   Chamberlain made a deal with Adolph Hitler allowing Nazi Germany to annex   Czechoslovakia’s Sudetenland. Hailed as a hero for his diplomacy at the time,   Chamberlain is now widely reviled for his policy of “appeasement” to Nazi   aggression. Yet one year later, Chamberlain led Britain into war against   Germany in defense of Poland once it became clear that appeasement had failed.   By contrast, the US did little to halt Hitler’s initial expansion, and   entered into the war only gradually, attempting, until attacked directly, to   sway the outcome without going to war itself. Never again would the US remain   so aloof for so long from such a momentous international affair. As such, the   Second World War represents a turning point in American foreign affairs, and   it is perhaps hard for us to understand why the US took so long to take   effective action against the Axis Powers.
