Scope and content
The documents produced over these eight years constitute full documentation which clearly highlights the various difficulties encountered by the nations as they strove to collectively satisfy the requirements expressed by the NATO military authorities in their efforts to meet the problems of shared defence together. As a consequence, the DPQ series represents a primary source for historical research, providing matter for a general study of the defence effort of the Alliance nations or for comparative studies.
It comprises the questionnaires and the replies of the member states. The general documents giving instructions for the preparation of the replies have the reference DPQ(year)General). They include forms and tables, together with administrative instructions, definitions and the arrangements for the distribution of the replies.
