Episode 6: Military Exercises

Episode 6. Military Exercises in the Cold War and Beyond   NATO’s mission has changed over time, from a strong deterrent role during the Cold War to a more diverse mission-set in the post-Cold War era. This included peace keeping, human rights protection and disaster relief. In this episode we discuss how military exercises changed over time by bringing together NATO planners and members of the various armed forces to discuss these changes.
