Hitler mentioned making an alliance with GBR to Neville Henderson; Henderson, incredibly, said
'speaking personally I did not exclude such a possibility'
alliance, surely a military one, against whom?
FO were of course flabbergasted and turned down the offer, but;
Hitler mentioned of the annihilating Poland.
Halifax deleted that reference when they sent the detail of the meeting to Poland.
And GBR was pledged
to defend Poland(But of course, Chamberlain was duplicitous; they made the clause of defending Danzig a secret
PERFECT device for GBR to backpedal AGAIN just like in Munich)
What the HELL were those guys thinking?
I guess another Munich.
They thought selling lives of peoples of OTHER nations were acceptable sacrifice to 'maintain' peace
Well, even the Pope was urging POL to surrender Danzig.
"Josiah Wedgwood, MP who despised appeasement and had visited GER, recalled how Henderson had 'smiled and fraternized with evil' "
