General De Gaulle was quick to recognise the possibilities this offered for his foreign policy. " But he also realised that France's chances of successfully confronting the United States alone were limited, even in the international monetary sphere.

The Federal Republic could not simply wait for that; it needed some plausible concept for dealing with a divided Germany.
