    'A brief but powerful story that comes at the very end of the twenty years of insecurity and crisis that followed the Great War', Overy's widely acclaimed account of the ten days prior to the British and French declarations of war recreates, hour-by-hour, the last days of peace, while setting the situation of Danzig and Poland - the trigger of conflict - in the context of the deteriorating European order during the 1930s.
