Winston Churchill

             Neville Chamberlain and Winston Churchill were contemporaries of Hitler, and
             each had his own opinion about appeasing him. They completely disagreed about what
             In Neville Chamberlain's speech In Defense Of Appeasement he supports
             "peace" at all costs for Europe, regardless of any other factors. He believed that the
             Czech Government should agree to give Germany the territory that it wanted, and in
