Abstract

General Eisenhower's speech of February 1 to Congress unquestionably marks a change in the attitude of the United States government toward German rearmament. A few weeks ago we were being told that German rearmament was a matter of utmost urgency, a life and death question for western Europe threatened with immediate Russian invasion. Now the general says that it isn't even time "to start to talk about including units of Germans in any kind of army."
