Summary "America's New Allies comprehensively analyzes the strengths and liabilities that accompany the 1999 addition of three former Soviet satellite nations - Poland, Hungary, and the Czech Republic - to the ranks of the 16-member North Atlantic Treaty Organization. This controversial enlargement of NATO formalizes the new geopolitical realities in Europe and forces the U.S. military to confront the prospect of defending these former enemies against armed attack."--BOOK JACKET
