London Revival

Gorrell, Frank
October 1954
New Republic;10/11/54, Vol. 131 Issue 15, p6
This article focuses on current developments in world politics. The Final Act of the London Conference restores West German's sovereignty and admits her to North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) as well as to the new Brussels Treaty Organization. Germany in return has forsworn manufacture of biological and atomic weapons, guided missiles, large naval vessels, submarines and bombers, and promised not to use force in attempting re-unification or modification of existing frontiers. Command of practically all forces on the continent will be vested in NATO's Supreme Allied Commander, thus revitalizing that organization and giving its commander tremendous power.
