    Hitler was invited to negotiate. Appeasement was an active policy, and not a passive one; allowing Hitler to consolidate was a policy implemented by "men confronted with real problems, doing their best in the circumstances of their time". Britain stood alone, confused about what had happened and baffled on what course to follow: fight on or enter negotiations with Hitler. But it would not immediately challenge the Western powers.

    Though initially unwilling to agree, the Czechoslovakians were forced to submit when informed that should a war occur they would be held responsible. The British Ambassador in Berlin registered a protest with the German government against the use of coercion against Austria. A careful examination of the evidence he adduces points towards a different conclusion. The international reaction to the events of 12 March led Hitler to conclude that he could use even more aggressive tactics in his plan to expand the Third Reich.

    Particularly fascinating was a lunch thrown by German Foreign Minister Joachim von Ribbentrop at the German Embassy on March 11, with British politicians in attendance at the same time that Hitler demanded the resignation of Austrian Chancellor Kurt von Appeasement in Crisis book or suffer an invasion. On Sept. The Czechoslovaks were dismayed with the Munich settlement. Britons later forgot that appeasement was highly popular with most of them right up to the invasion of Poland Another paralysing fear was of public opinion. The four powers agreed that Germany would complete its occupation of the Sudetenland but that an international commission would consider other disputed areas. Germany, Italy and Japan wanted power, so they took aggressive action that not even The League of Nations could stop.
