The Battle Not Begun
Staged reading of play by NPR’s Jack Beatty has a contemporary resonance. It lights up deeper issues – the conflict between democracy & autocracy, the drive for territorial conquest through war – that resonates today.
At the brink of war, British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain flew to Germany to save the peace. His three meetings with Adolf Hitler in September 1938 culminated with the Munich Agreement which allowed Germany to extend its territory into parts of Czechoslovakia. Chamberlain proclaimed “peace for our time.” But peace lasted only a year, ending in September 1939 with Hitler’s attack on Poland.
