Neville Chamberlain and Adolf Hitler’s Joint Resolution "Never to Go to War with One Another Again" (September 30, 1938)
Hitler's aggressive foreign policy had always been accompanied by declarations of his peaceful intentions. After signing the Munich Agreement the night before, Hitler and Chamberlain met again to issue the following joint declaration of their mutual desire for peace. Germany and Great Britain would henceforth resolve all conflicts diplomatically and "never go to war with one another again." Upon returning to London, Chamberlain announced that he had ensured "peace for our time."
