It was largely unprepared for this, leading to confusion and improvisation.

This book explains how the Alliance responded to the language and cultural challenges it faced and how one man led efforts to reorganize and professionalize NATOs translation and interpretation support on the ground so as to ensure that the missions did not fail through lack of understanding. The book contrasts these challenges with the situation during the Cold War period and outlines NATOs language policy and practices, including the growing dominance of the English language. It finally recounts how NATO eventually developed a coherent doctrine on linguist support for military operations.
