Abstract:

This thesis discusses selected periods of United States history which have influenced the development of the nation as a world power. Primary emphasis is placed upon the influence of the armed forces upon the implementation of the American foreign policy. This thesis concludes that participation of the armed forces in United States world diplomacy increased significantly during the development of the nation. The armed forces are involved in the aid programs sponsored by the United States for the developing nations to insure the security of the new nations. In the opinion of the writer the most significant consideration of military participation in diplomacy centers around the consequences of war. The presence of mass destruction weapons capable of unbelievable destruction demands that United States foreign affairs and military activities effect close liaison to avoid escalation of a dispute to nuclear war.
