Show synopsis 'It epitomises the best characteristics of the research now coming from the smaller countries...Through his wide-ranging research the author has also brought a wealth of hitherto unused sources to bear on Norway's role as a function of its geographic proximity to the Soviet Union...By focusing on naval strategy he furthermore sheds important new light on Britain's - albeit declining - maritime role in the North Atlantic.' - Olav Riste This study examines Norway's place in the strategic policies of the Eisenhower administration. It is concerned, above all, with the operational level of American policy as expressed through the activities and war plans of government agencies and armed services. It sheds new light on US intelligence activities and cooperation with Norway and Nordic countries (including the U-2 incident); the evolution of US forward maritime strategy in the Atlantic; and on planning for strategic air operations in the event of war.
