Abstract:

The problem is determining the perception of NATO as a military alliance from an Eastern European viewpoint in the current year. Due to the nature of the essay, basic sources are personal observation as a Military Attache and the communications media coverage in a communist country. The image of NATO portrayed by the government to the public of a Communist country should be an indication of the major strengths of NATO and conversely its major weaknesses. The conclusion is that NATO from the Eastern European viewpoint is a viable threat because of the following West German participation in NATO is a primary fear, American nuclear capability and ground strength continues to be respected, and the military technology of the West retains a position of importance.
