Anglo-French Relations before the Second World War: Appeasement and Crisis

Synopsis

Despite their shared interests, Britain and France, the only powers in a position to effectively meet the first overt challenges to the European order established after 1918, failed in the management of the crises facing them in Ethiopia and the Rhineland. In this book, Richard Davis attempts to understand the (mal)functioning of the Anglo-French relationship at this key juncture on the path to the second world war.
