    followed a policy of appeasement to retain peace between countries and stop the fascist powers of Italy and Germany causing disruption. There is a subsequent amount of evidence to suggest the policy of appeasement was a failure due to events including the Abyssinian Crisis, the Reoccupation of the Rhineland, The Anglo-German Naval Agreement, the Spanish Civil War and the Anschluss. Although it can also be argued that Britain had some success with preventing the fascist powers making appeasement successful

    In my opinion, Appeasement was the wrong policy to enact. I completely do not agree with it and if the allies had dealt with Germany firsthand, both appeasement and war would have been avoided. By enacting appeasement, The British government chose to give into Germany’s outrageous demands in order to avoid another devastating outbreak of war. This made the British seem as if they did not want to take action against Hitler. Several sources, a prime example a British political cartoon published in
