This timely book explores the often stormy French-U.S. relationship and the evolution of the Atlantic Alliance under the presidency of Charles de Gaulle (1958-1969). The first work on this subject to draw on previously inaccessible material from U.S. and French archives, the study offers a comprehensive analysis of Gaullist policies toward NATO and the United States during the 1960s, a period that reached its apogee with de Gaulle's dramatic decision in 1966 to withdraw from NATO's integrated military arm. This launched the French policy of autonomy within NATO, which has since been adapted without having been abandoned.
