Established after World War II, NATO’s founders fervently believed that only if the West’s democracies banded permanently together could they avoid a catastrophic global atomic conflict.

Deterring Armageddon takes the reader from backroom deals that led to NATO’s creation as the world’s most successful military alliance, through the Cold War, the Balkans and Afghanistan to the current confrontation with the Kremlin following the invasion of Ukraine. It also looks ahead to what might be the most dangerous era it has ever faced.
