520    For more than forty years NATO premised its defence on 
       credible nuclear deterrence. Underwriting this deterrence 
       was NATO's strategy and the nuclear weapons and command 
       and control systems intended to make the strategy an 
       operational reality. This book examines NATO's attempts 
       between 1952 and 1990 to achieve the political and 
       military control of nuclear weapons operations in a 
       multinational organisation. By using case-studies of US, 
       British, French and NATO nuclear weapons operations and 
       empirical evidence from Cold War crises it provides an 
       analysis of NATO's experience and offers insights for the 
       present day.
