Soviet Options toward NATO
ARMY COMMAND AND GENERAL STAFF COLLEGE FORT LEAVENWORTH KS
Pagination or Media Count:
This paper addresses the question of strategic options open to the Soviets in view of present NATO strategy and what the NATO countermeasures should be. The authors first examine Soviet thought processes, as conditioned by ideology, capabilities and priorities, in an effort to enumerate Soviet options and likely areas of emphasis. The second part discusses one of these options in detail--Soviet use of subversive movements within the NATO nations as a means of achieving the Soviet design. In assessing the present subversive threat in Western Europe, particularly with recent developments in Portugal, Italy, Greece and Turkey, this study offers a timely warning of a very real Soviet threat.
