This chapter pauses the historical narrative to take stock of some of the factors that influenced the strengths and weaknesses of the transatlantic alliance. It argues that NATO is more than a military alliance and that its political role is critical to its success. It examines the aspects of geography, history, ideology, international and regional roles, and capabilities that affect alliance relationships. It then shines a light on the perpetual burden-sharing issue that has been part of the alliance from the beginning and will likely persist for as long as the alliance survives.
