Title Modern Warfare: NATO's War amongst the People in Kosovo.
Publication Date May 2013
Media Count 68p
Personal Author M. A. Felice
Abstract This monograph explores the application of Rupert Smith's theory regarding the utility of force and the six characteristics thereof using NATO's 1999 Operation Allied Force (the Kosovo campaign) as a case study. Smith's theory and conclusions provide insight for both political and military leaders interested in the profession of arms. The monograph investigates the events leading up to the conflict, highlighting tensions within NATO, the intricacy of conducting alliance warfare, and the need to determine NATO's role in a post- Cold War world. Analysis of the campaign reveals tensions in civilian-military relations and tensions within the U.S. Department of Defense.
