This chapter defines the alliances and the widespread assumption that institutions can effectively aggregate the capabilities of their members. It also elaborates how the independent variables influence the dependent variable of military effectiveness, clustering the findings according to the categories of skill and quality, integration, and responsiveness. It is found that alliance operations influenced the strategic command and control, tactical command and control, and intelligence collection, analysis, and dissemination. It is expected that alliance operations result to the reduction of integration, skill, and responsiveness and their capabilities grow increasingly heterogeneous. The political benefits provided by legitimacy are strong enough that state leaders will frequently look for allies and partners in military operations, despite some of the operational and tactical costs.

Keywords:   alliances, military effectiveness, skill, quality, integration, responsiveness, alliance operations, legitimacy, military operations
