Abstract:

This paper analyzes Winston Churchills World War II proposal to enter the continent of Europe via the Balkans, the soft-underbelly. It considers the failure of the United States to have a National Policy or grand strategy in place upon which to weigh such proposals. The American, British and Russian perspectives are then reviewed, conclusion drawn and suggestions made for a future strategy in Europe.
