ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the defense of Europe. Shortly after the outbreak of war in Korea, France proposed the integration into a European Defense Community (EDC) of her armed forces with those of Germany, Italy, Belgium, Holland and Luxembourg. The proposal was seen as more than a limited response to immediate fear of Soviet Military power. Additional U.S. military assurances to the French, who are weakened by war in Indo-China and worried both by cracks in their African empire and the resurgence of their traditional foe, Germany; might be required if France is to join the EDC.
