Abstract

Extended deterrence is a central element of all Alliance relationships, as any potential aggressor must face the prospect of resistance not only by the immediate victim, but also by its ally. Most of today’s analysis of how this fundamental condition can be operationalized, demonstrated, supported and communicated is based on NATO’s history of relying on US extended deterrence in general, and on nuclear extended deterrence in particular, in keeping Western Europe free from Soviet encroachment during the Cold War.
