Abstract : In February 1987, the Soviets dropped their most recent demands for compensation from the United States for British and French nuclear forces in the INF negotiations, while reserving this demand for future arms control negotiations. This thesis provides background on the recurrent Soviet demands; it includes a historical description of the demands in the major arms control proposals in SALT I,SALT II, INF and START. It examines French and British nuclear forces, employment doctrine and arms control policies. Finally, it reviews Soviet and American policies regarding these weapons and considers implications for the Atlantic Alliance.
