This defense by the man who was French Foreign Minister at the time of Munich repeatedly cites the industrial and military weakness of France vis-à-vis Germany, and the lack of support she received from Britain, Russia and the United States. It seems probable, however, that he was so obsessed with the dangers inherent in French weakness that he would have been the unhappiest man in Europe if the backing of those Powers had projected France into a war honoring her commitment to Czechoslovakia.
