This text presents a reappraisal of British policy towards West German rearmament until the Federal Republic’s incorporation into NATO and contains a series of theses on British attitudes towards European integration, Anglo-Soviet relations and the “Special Relationship”. It places policy in the context of Anglo-German distrust, American demands for a German contribution and British fears of antagonizing the Soviets. It clarifies numerous controversial issues by demonstrating British willingness to compromise with the Soviets over German unification, the British military’s desire to reduce the continental commitment and Eden’s enthusiasm for a European Army.
