Tim Bouverie’s debut Appeasing Hitler is a new narrative history of the British appeasement of Hitler on the eve of World War II.
‘Bouverie skilfully traces each shameful step to war, as appeasement allowed the reoccupation of Rhineland, the Anschluss, and the final betrayal of Czechoslovakia, which he describes in moving and dramatic detail.’
- Lewis Jones, The Sunday Telegraph
‘Although the story of appeasement is extremely well known, Bouverie, a former producer at Channel 4, retells it with gusto.’
- Dominic Sandbrook, The Sunday Times
'Tim Bouverie breathes new life into this familiar story. His vivid narrative is compelling, even exciting, as it hurtles towards its tragic conclusion. This is a superb book that deserves to be widely read.'
- Literary Review - Adam Sisman
'In an impressive debut for a young historian, Tim Bouverie has reasserted the traditional verdict on appeasement with a book that is as fast-moving and exciting as the momentous events it describes. It is a glowing vindication of the fact that well written and research history need not be dry and dull.'
- BBC History Magazine - Nigel Jones
Appeasing Hitler will be published on Thursday 18th April 2019 by Penguin Random House.
