This book is a comprehensive account of post war British and German policies towards nuclear weapons and 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, theatre modernisation programmes - and demonstrates how British and German interests impinged upon these episodes. On occasion, theseinterests converged; at others, they diverged and Britain and Germany took on the role of protagonists. In all this, one of the less well-known nuclear relationships within the alliance comes vividly into focus. The book tells this part of the alliance's story in detail for the first time, and, in the accounts of development of German strategy, brings a refreshingly new perspective to the predominant Anglo-American interpretations.
Christoph Bluth is a Professor in the Graduate School of European and International Studies, University of Reading.
