Abstract:

The author comments on the development of NATO and how the Alliance has responded to the threat over the past forty years. A comparison of NATO and Warsaw Pact forces offers the reader some insight into the relative capabilities of both sides including both conventional and nuclear forces. The author discusses the political and economic factors as they relate to force levels and the consequences that any reductions in U.S. force levels might forebode. Recommendations for dealing with the current realities of determining force levels for NATO are provided.
