Was appeasement a mistake for Britain after World War 1?

Yes, the appeasement policy of Britain helped Hitler gain the stronghold over Europe and ended with the blitzing of London. The first aggressive land grabs of Hitler were allowed, since British and other leaders felt it was something he had a right to do, and if they ignored it, he would stop. He didn't, and by the time they entered the war after Hitler's invasion of Poland, he had gained too much power to be immediately stopped.

What was an cause of World War 2 in Europe?

Failure of AppeasementAppeasement means giving in to someone provided their demands are seen as reasonable. During the 1930s, many politicians in both Britain and France came to see that the terms of the Treaty of Versailles had placed restrictions on Germany that were unfair. Hitler's actions were seen as understandable and justifiable.When Germany began re-arming in 1934, many politicians felt that Germany had a right to re-arm in order to protect herself. It was also argued that a stronger Germany would prevent the spread of Communism to the west.In 1936, Hitler argued that because France had signed a new treaty with Russia, Germany was under threat from both countries and it was essential to German security that troops were stationed in the Rhineland. France was not strong enough to fight Germany without British help and Britain was not prepared to go to war at this point. Furthermore, many believed that since the Rhineland was a part of Germany it was reasonable that German troops should be stationed there.In May 1937, Neville Chamberlain became Prime Minister of Britain. He believed that the Treaty of Versailles had treated Germany badly and that there were a number of issues associated with the Treaty that needed to be put right. He felt that giving in to Hitler's demands would prevent another war.This policy, adopted by Chamberlain's government became known as the policy of Appeasement. The most notable example of appeasement was the Munich Agreement of September 1938.The Munich Agreement, signed by the leaders of Germany, Britain, France and Italy, agreed that the Sudetenland would be returned to Germany and that no further territorial claims would be made by Germany. The Czech government was not invited to the conference and protested about the loss of the Sudetenland. They felt that they had been betrayed by both Britain and France with whom alliances had been made. However, the Munich Agreement was generally viewed as a triumph and an excellent example of securing peace through negotiation rather than war.When Hitler invaded the rest of Czechoslovakia in March 1939, he broke the terms of the Munich Agreement. Although it was realised that the policy of appeasement had failed, Chamberlain was still not prepared to take the country to war over "..a quarrel in a far-away country between people of whom we know nothing." Instead, he made a guarantee to come to Poland's aid if Hitler invaded Poland.

How would Neville Chamberlain have defended the policy of appeasement?

It was an attempt to avoid war. Nobody wanted to go through all of that death and destruction, yet when an enemy is intent on destroying you, you must fight.

It's a lesson we should have learned. No amount of appeasement will deter radical Islam. They too are intent on ruling the world.

Does your ex husband have the right to claim on an insurance policy if child died in car accident child an adult?

if he's not on the policy as a beneficiery he can't. ADDED: It makes no difference if the child is an adult or a minor. If the policy is up-to-date (i.e.: all premiums paid and current) and your ex-husband is a named beneficiary on the policy then he does have beneficiary rights. It's as simple as that. On the other hand, if he was NOT specifically named on the policy, he has no claim whatsoever.
