, lest it be able to carry out its ‘“Trojan Horse” mission of transforming the Common Market into an “Atlantic Community”’ (Gladwyn, 1969, pp. 32 and 63). 15 German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer was firmly Western-oriented, keen on German membership of the Council of Europe, NATO, the European Coal and Steel Community and the EEC. See e.g. Ash (1993, Ch. 1). 16 Even the name the ‘Federal Republic of Germany’ indicated this, just as the name the ‘German Democratic Republic’ showed an admittance by that country that it was only German, not Germany. 17 The High Authority, a

Jonathan Colman

The Washington meetings would usually include an hour or two during which the

Wilson responded that if he did so he would be ‘finished’. 87 Johnson also asked Wilson if he was ‘going crazy’ by planning to pull troops out

This seems unsurprising given the fact many did not return until the second half of the 1940s, while the last of those who found themselves in the Soviet Union did not leave that country until Konrad Adenauer visited it in 1955. In the popular culture and academic literature of the Federal Republic, the term ‘prisoner of war’ has therefore tended to refer to those individuals who faced

The insistence reflected the unwillingness of the French establishment to recognise not only that France could no longer claim to lead Germany, and hence Europe, via the European Union, but that now Germany was assuming the role of primus inter pares (first among equals). Paris could do little about Germany’s gradually assuming the leading role in the European Union and working in favour of a federal EU structure in which Germany’s larger population would give it a correspondingly strong role
