Reviews

'This volume is a valuable contribution to a vital, yet much neglected issue: how NATO makes strategy. A range of cases - from Bosnia to Afghanistan and Africa - brings out well how the Alliance has fared in formulating and implementing strategy over the past twenty years. Policy-makers, soldiers and analysts are offered a plethora of useful insights into the challenges of achieving political and operational coherence in international interventions.'

- Jan Willem Honig, Department of War Studies, King's College London

'... an important collection of essays by a group of noteworthy scholars who have closely examined the many gaps between 'strategy on paper' and 'strategy in practice.' It will be immensely useful to the field of NATO defense studies.'

- Dr. Antulio Echevarria II, Director of Research, US Army War College

'The authors of this comprehensive and well-researched book have more than succeeded in their stated goal 'to enhance the understanding on NATO strategy formulations'. This book is a must for the serious student of the NATO political and military nexus in developing strategy for military operations.'

- General Bantz J. Craddock, U.S. Army, Retired
