Without Chamberlain's political courage the battle of Britain would have been lost. His policy of rearmament made the RAF a modern fighting force able to. Nicholas Milton in this book provides a sideline on this traditional narrative by pointing out that Chamberlain was also a keen conservationist before it was fashionable.

He helped to found the Council for the Preservation of Rural England (now the CPRE) and built environmental considerations into England’s planning laws long before the Town and Country Planning Act/5(10). The one thing detailed in this book that I have rarely seen in other histories of this period is how Neville Chamberlain, usually considered the main villain in British pre-war policy, fought for and won the decision to spend extra money building up the RAF instead of the British Navy and Army and, since it was the RAF and the Battle of Britain that ended up saving the UK from a German invasion, he at /5().

At the local, national, or imperial level, he was a constructive radical, caring more for practical. Chamberlain came from a famous political dynasty in Birmingham: his father, Joseph ("Joe") Chamberlain was Lord Mayor of the city and one of Britain's leading Liberal politicians in the late 19th.

An amazing, if depressing book about policy mistakes in the run up to World War 2: this book brings the principal players, Chamberlain, Hitler, etc to life and how the British Government took its time to realise that it wasn’t dealing with reasonable people, rather an evil to be fought/5().
