ABSTRACT
This article discusses the evolution of the European-American alliance and the role of the U.S. government in Europe's affairs. With American urging, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization powers adamantly resist changes in the Alliance. France then circulates proposals for an all-European political settlement with the Soviet Union, including a plan for German unification or neutralization, which are held to be acceptable in Moscow. These proposals are said to signify the "end" of the cold war and a normalization of political relations among all the nations of Europe, a normalization chiefly resisted, French and Soviet spokesmen note, by the United States, which indeed presses West Germany to reject these overtures, to require the removal of all French forces from Germany and take economic reprisals against France. The French, in turn, grant de facto recognition to the East German authorities as the provisional government of East Germany, subject to the negotiation of a German peace treaty and political settlement.
