Appeasement
 

Many nations (Great Britain in particular) were afraid that Germany would start another war. British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain attempted a policy of appeasement

He made an agreement (Munich Pact) with Hitler that if Germany would stop taking territory, they could have the Sudetenland (a German part of Czechoslovakia) without a fight.

Appeasement was a failure--Hitler took the Sudetenland and continued to add territory from the rest of Europe.
