Event Summary:

Our A-level History lecture series returns this term and we would be delighted if you and your students were able to join us. The lectures are delivered live, online, and cover topics from the AQA, OCR and EdExcel syllabuses.

Full Event Details:

In popular narratives of why Britain went to war in 1939, Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain and his allies are seen as 'Guilty Men'.? They are said to have recklessly taken Hitler's assurances at face value, ignored the need for rapid rearmament, and rejected opportunities for an international alliance against Hitler.? Central to this narrative is a view that people such as Winston Churchill consistently put forward alternatives to appeasement which could, and should, have been adopted.? Research over the past twenty years has pointed to a range of alternatives which were not pursued.? This webinar will examine why the alternatives were not adopted, whether the anti-appeasers actually held to consistent positions, and how far the cases of anti-appeasers were themselves problematic.
