For more than forty years NATO premised its defence on credible nuclear deterrence. Underwriting this deterrence was NATOs strategy and the nuclear weapons and command and control systems intended to make the strategy an operational reality. ThisMoreFor more than forty years NATO premised its defence on credible nuclear deterrence. Underwriting this deterrence was NATOs strategy and the nuclear weapons and command and control systems intended to make the strategy an operational reality. This book examines NATOs attempts between 1952 and 1990 to achieve the political and military control of nuclear weapons operations in a multinational organisation. By using case-studies of US, British, French and NATO nuclear weapons operations and empirical evidence from Cold War crises it provides an analysis of NATOs experience and offers insights for the present day.
