      In the end, war broke out and Czechoslovakia was completely taken over by Hitler and the Third Reich. Under a year later, Poland was invaded by both Germany and Russia, which provoked Great Britain and France to enter the war against the Axis Powers of Germany, Italy, and Russia. Bibliography. Faber, David. Munich, Appeasement and World. Great Britain, which was committed to defend Czechoslovakia only if France committed itself as well, feared being dragged into another world war. The British Conservative Prime Minister, Neville Chamberlain, led the crusade for peace.

        Just two days later, however, in sharp contrast to this explanation given in the Lower House, Chamberlain condemned the "German invasion" in his Birmingham speech of 17 March ; and on 31 March he signed an agreement with the Polish government in which Great Britain promised to support Poland in the event of war. Why was great Britain willing to go to war over Poland but not over Czechoslovakia? Because the Sudetenland in Czechoslovakia was legally given to germany. Whereas Poland was taken by force.

Soldiers, sailors, airmen, refugees and war workers came from the British Empire and the Commonwealth, the United States, occupied Europe, and neutral countries like Ireland. Even before the war, many refugees had come to Britain from Austria, Czechoslovakia and Germany.
