Abstract : The study examines the possible consequences of a sudden and significant unilateral withdrawal of US forces from Western Europe in terms of options available to the European members of NATO should such a retrenchment occur. It explores the reasons for the United States stationing forces in Europe and the psychological impact and relationship of those forces to the Alliance's defense strategy. It examines four courses of action that emerge as Western European alternatives to a precipitative reduction of the American on-scene commitment to the defense of Western Europe.
