    Immediately after the treaties of Versailles had come into effect, members of the British government and elite began voicing their concerns about the new borders they had done so much to establish. While there were British defenders of the new order, there were far more critics. Because of the events of 1938, which led to the dismemberment of Czechoslovakia, relatively little attention has been paid to the effect revisionism had on Yugoslavia. Yet up until the very end of the 1930s, great effort was made by certain revisionist states to undermine Yugoslavia and redraw her borders – an effort successive British governments witnessed with disinterest, while much of the British elite expressed support for revisionism. This support was unwavering, even after the assassination of the Yugoslav King, and the French Foreign Minister by revisionist agents. As a result of British backing for revisionism, and of the apparent ineffectiveness of French support, by the end of the 1930s Yugoslavia had turned to the Axis powers.
