Rezension zu "Munich" von David Faber

MUNICH 1938 ~ The Path to the Munich Agreement
Shimonavor 9 Monaten

Could the Second World War have been 
avoided?! ~ The Munich Agreement 

The historical thriller Munich based on the 
Munich Agreement was signed by the Great
Powers England, France, Italy and Germany.
It is very well shown in the book that the
Czechs were excluded from the 
negotiations, although the contract was 
about their state: a humiliation.

What I like very much is when the two 
special trains of Germany and Italy arrive
at Kufstein, Austria. The scenes on the train
during the journey as well as the meeting
afterwards at the station is described 
brilliantly as you can already feel the 
tension and nervous atmosphere increasing
gradually among the different parties.

If I had had such a great book to read once
 at  school I would have been thankful. 
I could not imagine a better historical 
knowledge basis for an entertaining 
History lesson!

With the brilliant presentation of the 
political problems during the time of the 
Third Reich Robert Harris wants to 
emphasize that Hitler wanted a war by all 
means. To be exact, he wanted a war of 
conquest!

The policy of appeasement intended by 
Chamberlain, who wanted peace in any 
case was highly esteemed by his people.

Furthermore the Author does a great job 
in describing how phisically exhausting 
the challenging duties of a politician are. 
Moreover we can learn how different 
persons rely on each other when they
 have to work out difficult political tasks.

The author shows how essential efforts 
of a translator and interpretor are. The 
politicians depend on these people because
 if they do not translate properly there can
 be misunderstandings which lead to 
possible awful results. 

The do-gooders of the plot are Prime 
Minister Chamberlain as well as his 
private secretary Legat who works for 
the Department of Foreign Affairs.

In all respects the book has an excellent 
arc of suspense and presents informative 
background information about historical 
coherence regarding the reasons that lead 
to the Second World War. For that reason 
it is a smart and enriching reading 
experience.
