For many people who live in Europe, the presence of substantial US military forces is a matter of concern and debate, which has tended so far to centre around a few highly-visible bases, such as the cruise missile locations. Apart from these few bases, relatively little is known about the size and extent of the US military presence in Europe. This book aims to fill that gap by providing the raw data on what is where. The study also highlights the historical details behind the acquisition of bases in individual countries, and summarizes and analyses all of the basing agreements between the US and its host nations which are available to the public. The book a timely contribution to the debate: as discussions begin for possible post-INF cuts in superpower force levels in Europe, there is an urgent need for accurate and unbiased information on US forces in Western Europe and on the massive infrastructure that supports those forces.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'a most impressive overview and a very detailed listing of the US presence as of 1988/89' NOD, No. 17, Nov '90
'a comprehensive analysis of the United States' military presence in Europe ... Despite the fact that the book contains an almost overwhelming amount of data, the author presents it in a political, strategic and historical framework which proves most useful for the reader. The book will indeed serve as an encyclopaedia in its field.' Journal of Peace Research, Vol.27, No.4 1990
`a most impressive overview and a very detailed listing of the US presence as of 1988/89 ... The historical and legal background for the various US installations is recorded and scrupulously documented.' Non-Offensive Defense
