Level:
GCSE
Board:
AQA

The Munich Agreement was supposed to end Hitler’s territorial ambitions in Europe and ensure that peace would prevail. However, in March 1939, Hitler’s forces invaded Czechoslovakia. They took all the territory with ease.

The invasion of Czechoslovakia by the Nazis happened with very little resistance to the German army. The invasion of Czechoslovakia made it clear that Hitler could not be trusted to keep his promises and agreements. Therefore the world started to prepare for war. Britain and France declared that if Hitler set his sights on Poland that they would have to declare war on Germany. Appeasement was over, but that fact it had continued for so long and Hitler had got his way made sure that Hitler was confident that nothing would stop him in his conquest of Europe.
