Why did Neville Chamberlain sign the Munich Pact?
Hi Liam. At the time of the Munich Pact, Britain was not able to handle the chance of entering in to another war. This is one of the reasons the Pact was signed, to keep further aggression at bay. There was a consensus that Britain would not be happy with going to war for the sake of Czechoslovakia. Similarly, at the time Hitler hadn’t displayed too much aggressive expansion and many world leaders believed that he would not continue to take over nations. As the Sudentenland was full of German speakers, it was considered almost reasonable that they become part of Germany. Hope that helps!
