1945 to 1990 was an era of peace and stability in Europe. NATO in the West and the Warsaw Pact in the East imposed the longest peace since the end of the Napoleonic Wars. But as the Cold War ends¸ this armed stability will end as well. The nations of Europe have many long-standing territorial disputes and historic animosities that only now can erupt into violence.
