Plot Summary

Based on the international bestseller by Robert Harris. It is Autumn 1938 and Europe stands on the brink of war. Adolf Hitler is preparing to invade Czechoslovakia and Neville Chamberlain's government desperately seeks a peaceful solution. With the pressure building, Hugh Legat, British civil servant, and Paul von Hartmann, German diplomat, travel to Munich for the emergency Conference. As negotiations begin, the two old friends find themselves at the center of a web of political subterfuge and very real danger. Written by Netflix

Edit
Trivia Though Hartmann and Legat are fictional, Harris confirms that they are partially inspired by the diplomat Adam von Trott zu Solz and the scholar AL Rowse. The latter, who was gay, wrote about his intense platonic attachment to Trott at Oxford. Trott, though a considerably less amiable character than the fictional Hartmann, went on to join Claus von Stauffenberg's 1944 plot to assassinate Hitler. It failed and Trott was executed. See more »
Goofs When at Munich, Paul is clearly paranoid about not being heard or seen with a Hugh. Yet they both speak publicly, in German, about stopping Hitler's plans right next to a table of Gestapo officers, the Nazi secret police, noticeable for their black uniforms. He even makes himself noticeable by borrowing their newspaper. Yet, no ones addresses nor questions his actions. See more »
