An analysis of French policy toward the Soviet Union since World War II against the background of Franco-American and Franco-German relations and of French domestic affairs. The return of General DeGaulle to power during the Algerian war and the construction of the Fifth Republic around him mark an important divide in French politics--a new concentration of French policy on the enhancement of France's rank among the states of Europe and of the world. DeGaulle's maneuvers to achieve a position of power for France are described. Although, for the time being, DeGaulle finds no compelling reasons, international or domestic, to change his approach to foreign policy, the question remains: how long will the costs of these policies to French interests be considered as justified by the benefits?
