Chamberlain didn't start the war, Hitler did. Chamberlain was dragged almost kicking and screaming into the war. Remember that Chamberlain pursued a policy of appeasement for the previous two years (not to mention the years before he became PM). As for Churchill, it would seem appropriate to note that had he had his way, the war would've started in 1938 (in sync with Hitler, oddly enough!!).Except Churchill didn't start the war, Chamberlain did.
Whether Chamberlain should have is a whole new post.
