On the eve of the 50th anniversary of the outbreak of World War Two, Countdown to War shows just how Hitler misread the intentions of the British. This drama - the true story of events, based on official records and pr...展开ivate letters and diaries - 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. But he made a misjudgement when he invaded Poland. He was convinced that Britain and France would not fight. History proved him wrong. Countdown to War shows just how close he came to being right.
