A pleasing image. Stanley Baldwin dominated British politics between the wars. His governments saw the abdication crisis of Edward VIII the crisis over Hitler's occupation of the Rhineland, the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War and the depression and high unemployment of the 1930s. He was, however, a popular Prime Minister and he defeated Ramsay Macdonald in two general elections before being ousted by Neville Chamberlain who, like Baldwin, will be remembered for his policy of appeasement.
