Munich Pact - MSN Encarta (482 words)
The Munich Pact secured the acceptance by Britain and France of the demand by Adolf Hitler that the German-speaking Sudetenland, a region of Czechoslovakia, be ceded to Germany, which it bordered.
The pact, signed by Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain for Britain, Premier Édouard Daladier for France, Adolf Hitler for Germany, and Benito Mussolini for Italy, merely determined the conditions under which the cession should be made.
The Munich Pact, however, came to be a symbol of the dangers of appeasement.
Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (4504 words)
The Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact, also known as the Hitler-Stalin Pact or German-Soviet Nonaggression Pact or Nazi-Soviet Pact and formally known as the Treaty of Nonaggression between Germany and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, was a non-aggression treaty between the German Third Reich and the Soviet Union.
For the Soviet Union, the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact was a much-needed response to the deterioration of the European security situation in the latter half of the 1930s, as Nazi Germany, aligned with Fascist Italy in the Axis Powers, aimed to reverse the disadvantageous Treaty of Versailles after World War I.
The reluctance of the western democracies to form an anti-fascist alliance with the USSR, and France and the United Kingdom's pact with Hitler signed at Munich, was indicative of a lack of interest from the side of the West to oppose the growing fascist movement, already exemplified by the events of the Spanish Civil War.
