First televised on Granada Television on 31 August 1989 to mark the 50th anniversary of the Ribbentrop-Molotov Pact, this drama faithfully re-creates the events, based on official records and private letters and shows just how Hitler misread the intentions of the British. It reveals the arguments and political manoeuvres of Europe's leaders as they struggle to work out what their rivals and allies are up to. Hitler is shown as a subtle tactician, who miscalculated that Britain would not go to war if he invaded Poland. Unfortunately, history almost proved him right.
