ABSTRACT
This article presents information on various political developments in Europe. At last the European Army project has been initialed by the governments of Europe. Now it faces the test of ratification under conditions that grow harder day by day. Yet nationalists unwilling to surrender local sovereignty, pacifists unwilling to see a military effort become the heart of a united Europe and all who fear Germany, or who wish to see Germany rise again, are joining to kill the European Army at its birth. Security is the principle issue. The basis of the unified army is no longer the combat team, but the division. Its weapons permit it to carry out brief action, but it cannot survive without the support of an army corps. The army corps is the real unit, it includes several divisions and comprises command organs, reinforcement and maintenance units and an integrated logistics support.
