TITANS OF THE 20TH CENTURY

Darkest Hour: 1938-1940

Season 1, Episode 4 of 6

The Spanish civil war reaches a bloody climax. The League of Nations seems toothless against the aggression of Italy, Germany, and Japan. Neville Chamberlain is the man of the hour - but Adolf Hitler is the man of the times. 1938 brings a group of our titans together when Chamberlain invents "shuttle diplomacy" at Munich, joining Hitler and Mussolini and thinking he has secured "peace for our time". "Good man! " telegraphs FDR. But peace is the last thing on Hitler's mind and the episode ends with war again burning across Europe.
