"You probably have read a number of books about Winston Churchill, and seen several films about him. There is now even a decent Churchill biography in comic book format – that I have previously reviewed. But Churchill was not "the man who averted another Armageddon". Those words were about the man most associated with appeasement policy, Neville Chamberlain.

Military and natural historian Nicholas Milton has written a very readable biography about "the architect of appeasement", Neville Chamberlainīs Legacy, and not far into the book I started thinking of it as a good foundation for a TV series. Like no other book, Miltonīs book (his first!) captures the incredible and genuine popularity that Chamberlain experienced following the signing of the Munich peace agreement on 30 September 1938. The prime minister who sincerely believed he had thus secured "peace for our time" soon thereafter received 20,000 letters and telegrams from a grateful public. To say that he was greeted like a rock star just after Munich is something of an understatement. More precise would be to say that he was treated like the Beatles. Even the royal family showed him unprecedented respect, also in public…"
