ADSS 1.156 Valeri to Maglione: avoiding conflict

ADSS 1.156 Valerio Valeri, France, to Luigi Maglione, Sec State

Reference: Telegram number 135 (AES 5869/39)

Location and date: Paris, 30.08.1939

Summary statement: French and UK negotiations with Germany offer hope; problem of Polish ‘intransigence’.

Language: Italian


It appears to me that, after an exchange of notes between Hitler and Chamberlain, Britain and France would see a chance of avoiding a catastrophe.

This would, however, come up against the absolute intransigence of Poland.
