Abstract: In March 28, 1938, Konrad Henlein, the leader of the Sudeten German Party in Czechoslovakia, met German Chancellor Adolf Hitler during which the former was instructed to put pressure on the Czech government regarding the rights of the three million ethnic Germans who lived mostly in the Sudetenland area of the country. Czechoslovak President Edvard Benes resisted, and on May 19 he initiated a partial mobilisation in response to a possible German invasion. In Malta, a threat was being felt, because if Germany was to invade Czechoslovakia, Italy might join them and attack the island. A deal was reached on September 29, and at about 1.30am on September 30, 1938, Hitler, Chamberlain, Benito Mussolini and Edouard Daladier signed the Munich Agreement.
