A: Appeasement is the policy of giving concessions in exchange for peace. It did not work because, even after Czechoslovakia agreed to Hitler’s demands and gave up the Sudetenland to Germany, Hitler still kept trying to take over territories. He had an his own agenda of conquest, of domination that he was determined to carry out. Furthermore, appeasement encouraged Hitler to believe that France and Britain would meet any demand so that they were not at war, leading Hitler to become even more aggressive in his conquest.

  1. Your answers are good. I find your answer to #5 incomplete, though. The Battle of Britain was aimed at RAF bases and was for control of British air space, but also included the bombing of London and other cities (mostly London, the capital) in an effort to demoralize and weaken British resolve to fight. Re-read your text materials for more information.
