Anglo-German Declaration of 1938

 

a declaration of nonaggression signed by the British prime minister, N. Chamberlain, and the fascist dictator of Germany, A. Hitler, on Sept. 30, 1938, in Munich, immediately after the conclusion of the Munich agreement of 1938. The declaration—in essence a nonaggression pact between Great Britain and Germany—gave fascist Germany full freedom of action with respect to the USSR. It was one of the acts of the policy of encouraging fascist aggression carried out by the ruling circles of Britain, France, and the USA to direct the fascist aggressors against the USSR. The Anglo-German Declaration virtually strengthened the position of fascist Germany and facilitated the unleashing of World War II.
