Abstract It is 1938 and Chamberlain goes to Munich to bargain with Hitler for "peace in our time." It was not to be. Instead, Hitler invades Czechoslovakia; Britain introduces conscription as trenches are dug and sandbags appear throughout London. Poland is invaded and Britain declares war. London evacuates its children and the British Expeditionary Force embarks for France. British shipping is being sunk, but this is nevertheless the "Phony War." Blackouts are introduced and traffic accidents double. Churchill replaces Chamberlain. The BEF is routed in France and the disaster of Dunkirk becomes a miracle. De Gaulle flies to London as Paris falls.
