A look at NATO and what the alliance does, past and present
The Washington Post -

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization, known as NATO, grew largely out of Cold War fears of Soviet aggression and expansionism, prompted by a Moscow-backed communist coup in Czechoslovakia, the Soviet blockade of Berlin that led to the Berlin Airlift, and other incidents. It was also meant to prevent the resurgence of nationalist militarism in Europe, and encourage political integration.
