More > next war will be won in the future, not in the past. We must go on, or we will go under.” As the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) adapts to the emerging strategic environment, it must consider innovative organizational structures that will allow it to harness the potential of its European partners. In this monograph, Lieutenant Colonel Raymond Millen examines NATO’s enduring deficiencies and their detrimental effect on military capabilities.

Paperback: $15.96
