ABSTRACT
The article reports on the support that Matthew Bunker Ridgway, newly appointed commander at Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers, Europe (SHAPE), has got in England and France. The new commander at SHAPE was hailed almost with enthusiasm in England and generally accepted in those Left and vaguely anti-American circles of the Right in France where his advent had only weeks before been contemplated with misgivings. Ridgway may after all be the best man to head SHAPE in the next European phase. In Europe, Ridgway will find that the problem of building a position of strength lacks the simplicities he left behind in Asia.
