The Treaty of Dunkirk was signed on 4 March 1947, between France and the United Kingdom in Dunkirk (France) as a Treaty of Alliance and Mutual Assistance against a possible German attack in the aftermath of World War II. The treaty entered into force on 8 September 1947 and preceded the Treaty of Brussels of 1948, which established the Western Union. According to Marc Trachtenberg, the German threat was a pretext for defense against the USSR.
