Abstract
The question of the cohesion of the Warsaw Pact forces is analyzed from the point of view of interaction between national attitudes and the integration mechanisms of the alliance. Functional and attitudinal aspects of integration are correlated with the reliability factor. The years of joint operations and indoctrination are weighed to measure the impact they have had on shaping overall perceptions and identification (or lack thereof) with common goals, and thus on patterns of future combat performance. In the final assessment three crucial components of the Warsaw Pact forces are analyzed: the servicemen, the professional cadre, and the military-political environment in which they interact. Their relative impact on the attitudes/performance mix in peacetime is evaluated and projected for wartime conditions. This is Volume I of a two-volume study.
