Britain, Germany, and Western Nuclear Strategy


This comprehensive account of post-war British and German policies towards nuclear weapons shows how these interacted in the context of alliance strategy. The author gives a detailed account of major episodes in the evolution of the alliance and its doctrine, such as the MLF debate, the origins of flexible response, and theatre modernization programmes, and demonstrates how British and German interests impinged upon these episodes. In all this, one of the lesser-known nuclear relationships within the alliance comes vividly into focus.
