Abstract : The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), formed in 1949, provided security and defense as an organization against the threat perceived through the ideology and military power of the Soviet Union and its expansionist politics. With the paradigm change in 1991, the Alliance shifted mission focus from defending its member nations against a main threat perceived from the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact to an Alliance that provides collective defense and security to its members through power projection. The purpose of this monograph is to present a model for transforming the military operational level of NATO from a twentieth century Cold War alliance into an effective twenty-first century alliance that provides security for its member nations.
