European Defence Community? (1954)

In 1954, the Union française des fédéralistes (French Union of Federalists — UFF) publishes a pamphlet for French citizens on the need for a European Defence Community (EDC). This publication illustrates the contemporary development of France in demographic, economic and defence terms in comparison with other neighbouring countries. It also outlines the structure of the EDC and its potential economic and military advantages, explaining how it can be considered as a key vehicle of European integration.
