The agreement was signed in 1938 by Germany, Italy, France, and the United Kingdom, without the participation of Czechoslovakia. It allowed Germany to annex the Sudetenland, which was seen as a way to appease Hitler and avoid war. However, this agreement ultimately failed to prevent further aggression by Germany, leading to the outbreak of World War II.

Chamberlain famously pursued a policy of appeasement towards Nazi Germany in the late 1930s, culminating in the Munich Agreement in 1938. This agreement allowed Germany to annex parts of Czechoslovakia, with the belief that it would satisfy Hitler's territorial ambitions and prevent war. However, this policy ultimately failed, as Hitler continued his aggression and led to the outbreak of World War II.

    What is the difference between suffragette and suffragist?Suffragists were .....??

    Correct Answer(s)
    Non violent
    Explanation
    Suffragists were non-violent in their approach to advocating for women's right to vote. They believed in using peaceful and lawful means to bring about change, such as organizing peaceful protests, lobbying politicians, and spreading awareness through public speeches and writings. This approach aimed to gain support and sympathy from the general public and policymakers, highlighting the injustice of denying women the right to vote. By contrast, suffragettes were more militant and employed more aggressive tactics, such as hunger strikes, vandalism, and even acts of arson, to draw attention to their cause.

The Pankhurst sisters, along with their mother Sylvia, founded the Women's Social and Political Union (WSPU), which became one of the most influential suffragette organizations. They advocated for women's right to vote through direct action, civil disobedience, and protests. Their leadership and activism played a crucial role in advancing women's suffrage and bringing about social and political change.

    C. Remilitarisation of the Rhineland
    D. Germany got away with uniting with Austria (Anschluss)
    Explanation
    The examples provided in the answer demonstrate appeasement because they involve giving aggressive countries like Germany what they wanted in order to avoid a major war. The Munich Agreement allowed Germany to annex the Sudetenland, the Remilitarisation of the Rhineland allowed Germany to strengthen its military presence, and Germany's union with Austria (Anschluss) was not met with resistance. These actions were all attempts to appease Germany and avoid conflict, but ultimately failed to prevent the outbreak of World War II.

    Explanation
    During World War 2, several significant changes occurred on the British mainland.

Evacuation involved the mass movement of children and vulnerable individuals from cities to rural areas to protect them from the dangers of bombing raids. The Home Guard was established as a volunteer force to defend against potential invasion. The Women's Land Army recruited women to work in agriculture, replacing men who had joined the military. War propaganda was used to shape public opinion and encourage support for the war effort. These changes were crucial in mobilizing and protecting the British population during the war.

    Explanation
    As World War II progressed, the opinion in Britain underwent a significant change. Initially, there was a strong sense of patriotism and adventure among the British people at the start of the war. However, this sentiment began to shift due to various factors. The reading of Seigfried Sasoon's Soldiers Declaration in parliament played a crucial role in shaping public opinion. It highlighted the harsh realities and horrors of war, causing people to question its purpose and necessity. Additionally, the impact of food shortages and rationing further affected public sentiment. As the war continued, the return of soldiers who were crippled and blinded further deepened the negative perception of war, leading to a change in opinion.
