Abstract : The recent emergence of Ostpolitik--the policy of resuming relations with the countries of the Eastern Bloc--as a basic element of German foreign policy has raised questions about the future of the Bundeswehr in NATO. Will the Germans continue to support NATO. What is the status and effectiveness of the German Army in its NATO role. What will be the future of the German Army in NATO. The study examines these questions through the use of current and historical source publications and personal experience of the author while serving with the German Army. (Modified author abstract)
