He set off a "war scare" in London in mid-March , which contributed to the timing of the British Guarantee to Poland of March 3. This is a narrative with selected archival documents, which became accessible after the Act of Parliament reduced the time of closure for state papers from 50 to 30 years.

Colvin condemns it, but most western historians came to judge the policy as natural in view of Britain's military weakness and economic problems.
