Tidbit About Chamberlain and Munich

#1 Post by Spock » Mon Sep 19, 2022 8:14 am

I am reading "Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy" by Eric Metaxas and I ran into this tidbit about Munich that I did not know before.

Bonhoeffer was anti-Nazi from the beginning as was much of his circle and were involved in various plots to take Hitler down. Most notably, Bonhoeffer was executed (as was his brother) shortly before the end of the war for his role in the July 20, 1944, plot.

Anyway, apparently (and news to me) a major anti-Hitler plot was in the works (by mostly military people) around the issues arising from Hitler's moves against Czechoslovakia when Chamberlain bailed Hitler out with his "Peace in our Time" stuff and all that. The anti-Hitler plotters were left gasping for breath as they never predicted Chamberlain bailing out Hitler in the manner he did.
