Why did the Britain, France, and the United States embrace the policy of appeasement? They believed that if they appeased Hitler’s demands, he would stop any future pursuits of territories. They believed appeasement could buy them time to increase their own military capabilities. Appeasement meant they had the power to dictate whether the Soviet Union and Italy gained any power in the annexed territories. The leaders thought that a policy of appeasement would deter other countries from taking aggressive actions in Europe.

    They felt they were not strong enough to go to war and they would loose and the people of Britain didn't want to They wanted to stop Hitler from going to war with them by giving him what he wanted The people wanted peace (fear of another world war) They thought Hitler's complaints were resonable especially about the Treaty of Versailles since it was probably too harsh on the Germans After the Great Depression, Britain and France had their own internal problems. They failed to co-operate to check Hitler. They felt that the USSR (Russia) was a greater threat to them. They therefore hope that by allying with Hitler, they may defend together against the USSR.
