SHORTLISTED FOR THE ORWELL PRIZE FOR POLITICAL BOOK WRITING 2020

‘Astonishing’ ANTONY BEEVOR

‘One of the most promising young historians to enter our field for years’ MAX HASTINGS

On a wet afternoon in September 1938, Neville Chamberlain stepped off an aeroplane and announced that his visit to Hitler had averted the greatest crisis in recent memory. It was, he later assured the crowd in Downing Street, ‘peace for our time’. Less than a year later, Germany invaded Poland and the Second World War began.

This is a vital new history of the disastrous years of indecision, failed diplomacy and parliamentary infighting that enabled Nazi domination of Europe. Drawing on previously unseen sources, it sweeps from the advent of Hitler in 1933 to the beaches of Dunkirk, and presents an unforgettable portrait of the ministers, aristocrats and amateur diplomats whose actions and inaction had devastating consequences.

‘Brilliant and sparkling . . . Reads like a thriller. I couldn’t put it down’ Peter Frankopan

‘Vivid, detailed and utterly fascinating . . . This is political drama at its most compelling’ James Holland

‘Bouverie skilfully traces each shameful step to war . . . in moving and dramatic detail’ Sunday Telegraph


Appeasing Hitler is an astonishingly accomplished debut. Bouverie writes with a wonderful clarity and we will no doubt hear a lot more of his voice in future -- Antony Beevor

A brilliant and sparkling debut by an outstanding young historian. Tim Bouverie has written an account of the build-up to the Second World War that reads like a thriller. I couldn’t put it down. -- Peter Frankopan

This is the debut of an unusually talented writer, one of the most promising young historians to enter our field for years -- Max Hastings

Drawing on an impressive and interesting range of sources and characters, Tim Bouverie has written a fascinating and scholarly portrait of a decade when credulity, self-interest and poor judgement prevailed tragically and inexorably over morality and good sense: this is the reporting of history at its best -- Caroline Moorehead

Appeasing Hitler is the stunning debut of a major new narrative historian. A riveting and depressing story which has resonance today as the democracies again face dictatorships -- Professor Margaret Macmillan
