Correct Answer: C
The Munich Pact gave Hitler the Sudetenland, an area in the western part of Czechoslovakia. In less than six months, Hitler had taken all of Czechoslovakia. Franco came to power in Spain in 1939 at the end of the Spanish Civil War. A nonaggression treaty was signed by the USSR and Germany after Stalin came to power. The war in Europe did not end (V-E Day) until 1945. The Atlantic Charter resulted from a meeting between Winston Churchill and FDR in 1941.
