Was the Munich Agreement a British diplomatic coup in 1938?
Neville Chamberlain died on 11/9/1940. Chamberlain's brother had won the Nobel Prize for Locarno, which has explicitly stated that the UK viewed Germany's Eastern border open for revision and was only committed to defending Germany's Western border. Other than getting Hitler's signature on an agreement that he then violate in less than 6 months, I see no other way that Chamberlain could have gotten a treaty with Poland ratified or instituted peace time conscription in a democratic society.

Thoughts? Does Chamberlain get a bum rap?

A few years back, I happened upon a book by a front bench Labour MP denouncing Chamberlain as something close to a traitor over Munich. I did some checking and that British politician had voted against conscription after the Nazis marched into Prague. I think that people forget that Chamberlain existed in a democratic society. Once Hitler made an agreement and almost immediately violated it, there was a resignation among the British public that there had to be a war and that preparations had to be made. This was not the national consensus in Britain until March of 1939.

I agree; there was zero appetite for intervention in Europe and little at all for defending Poland... if there had have been then the Anschluss, and later the dismemberment of Czechoslovakia would've stimulated a much greater response. My mother after a YHA trip hiking through the Black Forest became very enamoured of a Hitlerjugend fellow in 1937, only dissuaded from pursuing this by my grandfather who had fought in the first WW. My father was in the TA and joined up before general conscription believing 'regulars' would receive special treatment - he did, he ended up in the BEF, blowing up bridges "running, hiding and fighting when we had to" to cover the retreat to Dunkirk... It wasn't our finest hour ...

Anonymous games
I've noticed that most of the new games on this website are set to "anonymous". Why is that? Why do the people setting up new games like "anonymous" so much?

Anyone want to take this world game?
I'm playing in World Peace Simulator-2, gameID=39267 , but I'm about to go away and am unsure if I'll be able to input my moves. If you are interested, PM me and I'll tell you what country I'm playing. I don't want to just say it here as the game is anonymous. Then I can use the country switch tool to give it away. Please take a look if you are interested.
Thanks!
