The Munich Agreement of 1938 was an important milestone in the preparations for World War II. The Munich Accord - an agreement drawn up in Munich on September 29, 1938 and signed the following day - September 30 - by British Prime Ministers - Neville Chamberlain, France - Eduard Daladier, Italy - Benito Mussolini and German Reich Chancellor Adolf Hitler. As a result of this agreement, these Western countries sanctioned the start of the capture of Czechoslovakia by fascist Germany. More precisely, it provided for the transfer of Germany to the Sudetenland of Czechoslovakia (with all the structures and fortifications, factories, factories, stocks of raw materials, communication routes ...), as well as the satisfaction at the expense of Czechoslovakia of the territorial claims of Hungary and Poland. Czechoslovak representatives were not allowed to discuss this agreement. The USSR was also denied participation in the meeting. The first country that signed the treaty with Hitler in the role of chancellor ... was Poland. In 1934, the "Hitler-Pilsudski Pact" was signed, which signified Germany's withdrawal from political isolation. Later, agreements with Hitler signed London (Anglo-German declaration on the results of Munich), and then France. Italy became an ally of Germany, along with Japan. The last great power that concluded the Treaty of Non-Aggression with Germany was the USSR. In the framework of the Munich conference, the British, the French, the Germans and the Italians decided that the Sudetenland of Czechoslovakia must be given to Hitler. At the same time the army of the Czechs was NOT LESS German, but the pressure from England and France on them was such that Prague agreed. At the same time, the settlement of the problem with the Polish and Hungarian minorities was identified in the annex to the decision of the Munich Conference as being negotiable with Poland and Hungary. The Czechs had the full feeling that after giving Hitler Sudeten, no one would give anything to anyone. But they were simply rudely deceived. The day after the announcement of the decision of the conference to transfer part of Czechoslovakia to the Third Reich, Poland issued an ultimatum. In 24 hours to transfer to her Teshinskaya region under the threat of the outbreak of war. The Czechs agreed to this and the Polish occupation forces entered its territory.
