He promised ‘peace in our time’ but was proved catastrophically wrong. Neville Chamberlain has been judged harshly by history, but is that totally justified? Nicholas Milton is a military and natural historian specialising in the World War II and conservation who has written for several national newspapers. His book, Neville Chamberlain’s Legacy: Hitler, Munich and the Path to War, looks closely at the career of one of our most criticised prime ministers. He’ll be in conversation with James Lloyd, Chamberlain’s grandson, to explore the character of the man who waved that famous piece of paper.
