I found the discussion of the Munich pact and the summary of the various historical arguments that continue to this day about the choices made very interesting and intelligible to the lay reader that is not an expert in this era. The other chapters each of which focused on a country and an important event, was a clear choice to tell the story, similar in some respects to Dark Valley, at times helpful (if one wants to know what is happening in a specific country), at times less so, as then the "big" pictures tens to get lost. The citations/end-notes leave much to be desired, however.
