Sir Winston Churchill e a sua Recusa em Negociar com a Alemanha Nazi

Translated title of the contribution: Sir Winston Churchill and His Refusal to Negotiate with Nazi Germany

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Some historians (who label themselves as conservative), melancholic with the loss of the British empire, sustain that it would be possible to reach an understanding with Hitler´s Germany, and that the proposals of peace formulated by Hitler in 1940/1941, should at least be considered by Sir Winston Churchill.
In this field it stands out John Charmley, who considers correct the appeasement politics implemented by Neville Chamberlain and that Churchill prevented it from reaching its goal. Moreover, Hitler´s peace proposals should at least be considered and the proper timing for a negotiation should have been in 1941. Indeed, it would be possible for Britain to preserve its empire – allowing Hitler’s Germany to concentrate all its efforts in the Russian front.
The present essay aims to respond to the following question: should have Churchill negotiated with Hitler´s Germany? For that end, the arguments of Churchill and Charmley will be confronted, and this essay concludes that Churchill was right for not even wanted to start negotiations with Hitler´s Germany.
