On 30th September 1938, Neville Chamberlain stepped off an aeroplane and announced that his visit to Hitler had averted the greatest crisis in recent memory. He declared it was ‘peace for our time’, but within a year Britain was at war with Germany. Tim Bouverie will give a compelling reappraisal of the immense drama of those disastrous years of indecision, failed diplomacy and parliamentary infighting that enabled Nazi domination of Europe.

Bouverie’s book reached number 4 in the Sunday Times best-seller list in the first week of publication.
