Abstract:

Despite the fact that it is not integrated into the NATO military structure, France is a pivotal security partner for the United States. While its defense policy is marked by independence, its military capabilities complement those of the Alliance. With their role in dissuasion, prevention, projection, and protection, the French armed forces are global, nuclear, conventional, and unconventional, and are being transformed to become significantly smaller, restructured, and more professional.
