As time went on the Allied Powers became more concerned with  Hitler being in power Germany, Italy, and Japan created a military alliance known as the  Axis Powers Munich Conference- consisted of four European leaders  Hitler, Mussolini, Neville Chamberlain, and Edouard Daladier - conference led to a policy of appeasement which basically was an agreement to give Germany control Sudetenland to avoid a larger conflict with Germany Winston Churchill believed that the appeasement would encourage  Hitler to go crazy with power and try to claim more land This scared other European nations into speeding up their  rearmament The U.S. was determined to stay peaceful during this so they isolated  themselves from the war
  5. 5. Germany became more aggressive  In 1939 Hitler’s armies occupied Czechoslovakia  Britain and France decided to declare was onto Germany if they attacked  Poland On August 23, 1939, Joseph Stalin and Hitler signed a nonaggression pact with  Hitler that meant they would not attack each other September 1, 1939, Hitler’s army moved into Poland  Two days later the Allied Powers declared war on Germany 
