Today, 63 years ago, Neville Chamberlaine stepped off the plane and proclaimed "we have peace in our time." History regards that as a sellout and the Czechs were dismayed, but really, how did the respectable opinion of the day regard it? If it happened today, the NYT would praise him for his statesmanship. Everyone knows that Churchill thundered against it, but how did most of the people react?

Sadly, with relief and joy. The British population was vehemently isolationist and wary of war because of their WWI experience. Chamberlain was feted far and wide post-'peace in our time'. Essentially, the whole world was happy to give up Alsace-Lorraine, the Sudetenland and Czechoslovakia for a chance at 'peace'. Quite the folly. CB
