ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the relationship between France and U.S. with regards to the former's nuclear policy. The American refusal to aid France in developing her nuclear strike force earned many critics. Proponents argue that France is well on the road toward acquiring her force de frappe, despite the U.S. government's opposition which has embittered French officials and made their program slower and more expensive. The bitterness and higher cost leave France both less willing and less able to support common enterprises, including the provision of modern French divisions to North Atlantic Treaty Organization and toleration of American-controlled nuclear weapons on her territory.
