English: The Munich Agreement was an agreement regarding the Sudetenland Crisis between the major powers of Europe after a conference held in Munich, Germany in 1938, and signed on 29 September 1938. The Sudetenland was an area of Czechoslovakia where ethnic Germans formed a majority of the population. It was of immense strategic importance to Czechoslovakia, as most of its border defenses were situated there, along with a huge armament facility Škoda Works. The purpose of the conference was to discuss the future of Czechoslovakia and it ended up surrendering much of that state to Nazi Germany.
