Nato has a New Battle Plan – and Russia isn’t the only Threat | Defence in Depth

NATO – Big Battle Plan

What were you doing in 1967? Elvis and Priscilla got married, The Beatles released Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, and Yuri Andropov, the future Soviet president, became head of the KGB.

Nato, meanwhile, was drawing up its big battle plan – a blueprint that remained in force for decades, until just three weeks ago.

A new plan was driven forward by Christopher Cavoli, Nato’s Supreme Allied Commander Europe and a US general, who made it his mission to update Nato’s preparedness in the face of a renewed threat from the east.

It remains to be seen whether Nato has totally shaken off its Cold War mindset, and whether it remains too focused on Russia.
