A Transformation Gap?

This chapter introduces the common analytical framework which is used in this book. It concentrates on breaking transformation down into network-enablement, effects based operations (EBO), and expeditionary warfare. Britain, France, and Germany have similar potential to resource military transformation. Like EBO, the effects-based approach to operations (EBAO) paid attention on the strategic impacts of operations and also places priority on the integration of the various instruments of the alliance and coordination with other international organizations. An analysis of the literature reveals the significance of military culture, civil-military relations, and resource considerations in influencing European military transformation. It also shows the diffusion of US military innovations and how those innovations are received, adapted, and adopted by European militaries. The imperative for European members of North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) responded to US burden-sharing concerns, and the “legitimacy benefits” of military transformation for new members of NATO.

Keywords:   network-enablement, effects based operations, expeditionary warfare, European military transformation, North Atlantic Treaty Organization, Britain, France, Germany
