      Abstract

      In opposition to US policy today, during the 1950’s, the United States was a strong, even the primary supporter, of a supranational European defense force with the goal of creating a European power bloc. Ironically, French distrust of the integration process killed the EDC. Moreover, the failure of the French to ratify the EDC was a major step on the road to mistrust between France and the US that continues to exist today.
