Summary

Since the diplomatic relationship between the U.S. and the FRG is the heartbeat of the Atlantic Alliance, West Germany is the most strategically vital European member of the alliance. U.S. forces have been stationed in the country since the end of World War II, constituting the largest U.S. overseas contingent Discussing why the U.S. will remain in the FRG for the foreseeable future, Dr. Nelson examines the U.S. military presence in broad historical perspective. He shows how that presence has affected the development of the political and diplomatic relationship between the two countries and has contributed to a dense network of military/civilian relationships, including kinships through marriage and individual friendships. Exploring the military side of this close and abiding partnership, the book analyzes U.S. successes and failures, pointing to changes necessary for maintaining the cohesiveness and viability of the U.S. presence on an ally’s soil.
