The Munich Conference was one of the most important diplomatic meetings in the 20th century, it started with British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain and Adolf Hitler having different opinions about war, Chamberlain wanted peace while Hitler wanted war. The two met twice before, but Chamberlain proposed a third meeting with the four diplomatic representatives, Benito Mussolini of Italy, Edouard Daladier of France, Adolf Hitler of Germany, and Neville Chamberlain of Britain to find an agreement of peace. Germany was given the right to occupy the Sudetenland, part of the Czechoslovakian land. Czechoslovakia had no say in the Munich Conference, and they ended up losing 16,000 square miles of land. Every one of the diplomatic leaders figured the Munich Agreement would bring peace, but Hitler took over all of Czechoslovakia in 1939.

The Munich Conference was a diplomatic meeting between Britain, Germany, France, and Italy. In the Munich Conference, Britain and France had to decide between sacrificing their democracy to Hitler and risking a war. They did not want to risk war, so chose to sacrifice their states. Under the Munich Agreement, Hitler claimed about one-third of Czechoslovakia. The powers of Czechoslovakia were never consulted in the Munich Conference, but were forced to just submit. Czechoslovakia had no voice in the matter of the Munich Agreement. The other democracies of the world were happy with the Munich agreement, because they thought it prevented a war. After the agreement, Winston Churchill saw it as a defeat for democracy. Chamberlin soon realized that Hitler, if he wanted to destroy Czechoslovakia, would not be able to be stopped. The Munich Agreement only made Hitler even more powerful.

British prim minister Neville Chamberlain wanted peace but Hitler wanted war. They had already had two meetings but Chamberlain called for another because no one knew how intent hitler was for war. The third meeting was called the Mulchin conference of 1938. At that conference there was Adolf Hitler of Germany, Neville Chamberlain of Britain, Bentino Mussolini of Italy, and Edourad Dalarier of France. France and britain had to choose between sacrificing their democracy and war. They chose sacrificing their democracy. On september 29 all four leaders agreed on germanys occupation of the Sudenten land. Germany got rights to the central Czechoslovakia to vienna, and right to occupy some of the Czech border forts.Czechoslovakia lost one third of its former land.

The Munich Conference, a diplomatic meeting, was held between Italy, Germany, Britain, and France. This conference was held because the British Prime Minister, Neville Chamberlain, and Adolf Hitler of Germany had a contrast. Neville Chamberlain wanted peace while Adolf Hitler wanted war, and in desperation, Chamberlain proposed a third meeting, the Munich Conference in 1938, which was during the time of the Czech crisis over Sudentenland. At the meeting, Neville Chamberlain, Adolf HItler, Bento mussolini of Italy, and Eduoard Daladier of France met to agree that Germany would gain the Sudentenland of Czechoslovakia. Although the Czechoslovakian land was given to Germany, they were not involved in the Munich Conference because they were not consulted at it, and they had no voice over the agreement. Due to the agreement of Germany gaining Sudentenland, Czechoslovakia lost one-third of its former self. The significance of this meeting was that they thought this meeting would bring peace, but Hitler ended up taking over most of Czechoslovakia.

Patrick #1 The munich conference was a meeting between, Hitler (Germany), Mussolini (Italy), Chamberlain (Britain), Daladier (France). It was setup by Chamberlain to try to convince Hitler to remain peaceful and to not start a war. Eventually they gave in and gave Hitler land from Czechoslovakia and the Sudetenland. Hoping that would keep him happy and he wouldnt want to go war.But even after they awarded him that land, he eventually attacked Poland.

Patrick #2 Because they were trying to avoid war. And they knew that if they didnt give into Hitlers demands that he would begin a war. And even Chamberlain realized that if Hitler did start a war that he'd be unstoppable. So they performed appeasement which is where they give into a countries demands so they dont start a war.

The Munich Confrence's goal was to allow Adolf Hitler to expand Germany's empire while keeping peace. Neville Chamberlain, Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, Eduard Daladier all attended the Munich Conference. Hitler was allowed to take Sudetenland & part of Czechoslovakia. He took all of Czechoslovakia and everybody realized they had been tricked. All of the leaders at the Munich Conference thought the agreement would bring peace, but they found there was no negotiating with Hitler.

Germany received the highway rights through central Czechoslovakia, they lost about one third of its former self.

BONUS I think that if they wouldve adheered to the restrictions and kept Hitler in check it really wouldnt have changed that much. He eventually wouldve gotten very frustrated, and ended up attacking some country around him and still wouldve ended putting Europe into war. Hitler had alot of power in 1939 and no matter who tried to stop him he was gonna get what he wants. Like a small child. So it wouldnt have changed that much.

The munich conference was where the leaders of Britain, Germany, Italy, and France came together to discuss the threat if war Hitler had placed on Italy. France and great Britain decided to not risk the war and backed out. Then on September 29 the four leaders gave Germany the right to occupy Sudentenland. They also gave Germany the highway rights through central Czechoslovakia. This then gave Germany the ability to have easy transportation to Vienna and they also received the right to occupy a few Czech border forts.

They wanted Hitler to destroy Czechoslovakia ,but Chamberlain Did not think Hitler could defeat the Czechoslovakia. If he did they think he would not be stopped.

The reasons Chamberlain and Daladier gave into Hitler is because of appeasement. Appeasement is when you give the aggressor what they want. They let him have what he wanted to avoid war, but when Hitler took over all of Czechoslovakia appeasement no longer came into play. Hitler made a plan to invade Poland..............

The Munich Conference was the third meeting between Adolf Hitler of Germany and British prime minister Neville chamberlain. Hitler wanted war so chamberlain desperetly called the conference to try and keep peace. Others were also called to the meeting including Benito Mussolini from Italy and Edourd Daladier of France. France and Brittian both agreed to not stop Hitler because they did not wish to start war, because of this Germany gained the Suedentland. Now that Hitler had gained the land he now would invade Czechoslovakia.

In the munich conference four countries were involved they were Germany, France, Britain, and Italy. The conference was just the four head diplomates who were Adolf hitler of germany, Neville Chamberlin of Great Britain, Benito Mussolini of Italy, and Edouard Daladier of France. This meeting was the third meeting of Adolf and Neville, Neville wanted peace and no war but Adolf wanted war. Since Neville wanted peace and Adolf wanted to gain some land germany lost. On September 29th all four leaders agreed to let Adolf take back the land Sudetenland, this caused Czechoslovika to lose one third of its former self. Everyone except the four other countries named were not involved. The aftermath of the munich agreement was the democratic parties heralded it from helping stay out of the war.

After punishing Germany for so many years after WWI, Chamberlain and Daladier gave in to Hitler's demands for extending the German Empire because Hitler had become sure that no democracies would stand in his way, and they knew they could not do anything about it. They learned that Hitler could not be stopped, and that he tricked everyone. Although Hitler got away with taking over Czechoslovakia and Austria, they knew they had to stop him from taking over Poland. Britain and France declared war on Germany in 1939, which would become WWII.

They gave into Hitlers demands because, they dont think that hitlers going to attach them because they signed a appeasment which is a agreement to be allies and not to attack one another

The Munich Conference started because of the democratic nations' fear of going to war with Germany. On September 29, 1938, Hitler of Germany, Mussolini of Italy, Chamberlain of Britain, and Daladier of France signed the Munich Agreement which allowed Germany to occupy Sudetenland, but kept Britain and France from going to war with Germany. Germany was also given rights to Czech highways and some Czech border forts. Czechoslovakia had no say in this and was forced to give in to the agreement. Powers around the world saw the agreement as a huge democratic success, but then Hitler ended the entire Czech state. France and Britain did nothing about it, but when Germany invaded Poland on September 1, both countries declared war on Germany, ending the Munich Conference, and starting WW2.

After punishing Germany for so many years following WW1, Chamberlain and Daladier gave into Hitler's demands for expanding the German Empire. The reason they gave in to Hitler's demands was because they realized that Hitler was too powerful, and they knew they couldn't stop him. They realized that everyone had been tricked by Hitler, and that if they tried to stop him, war could break out. Hitler's was very confident and sure that no democracies would stand in his way, which led him to be able to take over Czechoslovakia and Austria. After doing this, Hitler's next victim was Poland, which made Daladier and Chamberlain realize that he must be stopped, so they declared war on Germany, which became a very bloody battle known as WW11.

If the European nations had stood firm on their restrictions of Hitler and Germany, I do not think that Hitler would have adhered to the orders because Hitler was a man of his own, and he did what he wanted. It is obvious by his personality that Hitler was a leader, not a follower, which would have resulted in him retaliating in some way because he would want to be the one to make the rules, not follow them. Hitler was so powerful that he would not let anyone get in his way, and he would stop anyone who tried.
