The British government were undeniably slow to act, as indeed the Americans were.
yes, the brits were slow, but to be fair, the british are a seperate nation and the horrors of WW1 were not a desirable repeat. of course, its our fault tht we allowed hitler to advance developments in the army and occupy forbidden fronts, but in the end we won over. the americans followed the wrong policy from the start, same as we did.

You're forgetting that the Treaty of Versailles (sp) was one of the major factors for the second world war in the first place. And that Britain had a big hand in setting the terms of that treaty.

Yes, but they could not know how much of a fault it was. In fact the appeasement was a very noble strategy aiming at preventing any war. Maybe today we are smarter...

Yes again, but they did not intend to push Germany into a new war! Of course Germany could not pay the reparations but the results could in no way be predicted.

yeah, but Lloyd George was the only one of the main leaders to have any sort of good idea of how it should have been done. But France wanted revenge and USA wanted to be soft, so a dodgy compromise was struck.

BTW, to anyone who does/did gcse history, do/did they find it to be incredibly biased at all?

The compromise as you put it, was the defining factor for Hitler's rise to power.

What do you mean by "biased"? You can only say that the list of things we have to look at is biased...

And remember our teachers would have had choices between several specifications. We're doing "Modern World History". I remember our choices book in year 9 said there were several possible things they may choose, such as the American Wild West.
