Suddenly on an early autumn day in 1938 there was not going to be a world war after all. This is the petit-point of history: a play-by-play, hour-by-hour account of the most important meeting of an era. Captured German secret archives, Chamberlain's private letters, Daladier's recollections and a mass of other evidence, brilliantly assembled show every aspect of Munich-the background, the real forces opposing one another, the manoeuvres of the politicians, the opinions of the men entrusted with the lives of nations, and the dreadful outcome. Illustrated by 8pp of B&W ill. 423pp in great order.
