p.19.: French Foreign Minister Barthou, finding Sir John Simon reluctant to undertake new
commitments for Britain sought security elsewhere by trying to form a bloc of all those nations
in Eastern Europe willing to resist aggression (including Soviet Russia and Czechoslovakia, both
of whom already had pacts with France). When Hitler complained of "encirclement", Barthou invited
Germany herself to join. Hitler declined and made a pact of his own with Poland instead, spoiling
the plan.
