ABSTRACT
The article discusses the myth that the appeasement policy of British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain caused or helped cause World War II. Appeasement's popularity and rational aspects forgotten, the whole mess of the 1930s could be pinned on the winged collar of a dead man, Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, who died in 1940, and safely anathematized.
