Praise For Munich, 1938: Appeasement and World War II…
"With an encyclopedic grasp of the diplomatic issues at hand, David Faber has written the most thoughtful and well-researched study of the Munich Conference ever written. All the key historical players are brought to life: Hitler, Chamberlain, Lord Halifax, and Mussolini, in particular. Faber's analysis of appeasement is nothing short of brilliant." -- Douglas Brinkley, author of The Wilderness Warrior: Theodore Roosevelt and the Crusade for America
"Using archives, diaries and memoirs, David Faber has meticulously reconstructed one of the momentous events of the twentieth century. Moreover, he manages to tell the story of the Munich conference in a manner that grips the reader even though the outcome is a well-known tragedy." -- Joseph S. Nye, Jr., University Distinguished Service Professor, Harvard University, and author of The Powers to Lead
"David Faber offers a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at how Hitler outwitted the smug and curiously naïve Chamberlain to win control of much of Czechoslovakia and start down the road to war. Dramatic, exciting, and at times almost unbearably poignant, Munich, 1938 puts a human face to a key turning point in history and makes it come alive." -- Lynne Olson, author of Troublesome Young Men
