Essays on american foreign policy

Without the direct and indirect assistance of France, it is doubtful that Americans could have won the war for independence.  From 1776 to 1783 France supplied the United States with millions of livres in cash and credit.  France also committed 63 warships, 22,000 sailors and 12,000 soldiers to the war, and these forces suffered relatively heavy casualties as a result.  The French national debt incurred during the war contributed to the fiscal crisis France experienced in the late 1780s, and that was one factor that brought on the French Revolution.  In the end the French people paid a high price for helping America gain its independence.
