That Hitler's choice of escalation in early October 1940 was driven by his dashed hopes for accommodation with the Allies is put in doubt by the sequence of decisions. On 6 October, Germany made a "last" peace overture to the Western democracies. By 9 October, Hitler was already planning what to do in case of a negative response, and by 12 October, Chamberlain had officially rejected the offer. Thus according to the "pacify the West" argument, before 6 October, Hitler should have desired restraint in the submarine war against Britain and France, and after 12 October restrictions should have been lifted.
