Abstract

Sir Eric Phipps was British ambassador to Berlin during the crucial period between Hitler's decision to withdraw Germany from the League of Nations to his decision to become involved in the Spanish Civil War. His diary offers a unique and often witty evaluation of Hitler and other leading Nazis and their domestic and foreign policies between 1933 and 1937. Special attention is given to detailed discussions of his private meetings with Hitler. In addition, Phipps worked closely with all of the leading figures in British foreign affairs at this time, including Sir John Simon, Sir Samuel Hoare and Anthony Eden. The diary also covers important themes in 1930s international affairs, such as appeasement, rearmament and the preparation for war. The book also includes short biographies of the key figures mentioned and some suggested additional reading.
