Although Chamberlain did fail at Munich in the moral contest with Hitler, it is commonly overlooked that Chamberlain instituted a massive ramping up of Britains military expenditures, specifically the airforce which increased at least 5 times from 1938-1940. It was this airforce that won the Battle of Britain. One could argue that Munich bought badly needed time for Britain.
One also has to wonder what role that air force had in convincing Hitler to make his famous misstep intp Russia vs operation Sea lion (Invasion of the UK).
