History

The G chronological series contains the documents on German Defence Contribution of the Executive Bureau of the Temporary Council Committee (TCC). In October 1951 the Temporary Council Committee circulated among member nations a couple of questionnaires to objectively analyze the military situation of the Alliance (see TCC-D/5-ADD1 and TCC-D/6). At the same time an Executive Bureau (EB) responsible for carrying out the analytical work, known as the "Committee of Three Wise Men", was set up within the Temporary Council Committee. Consequently, the Allied High Commission for Germany produced a report on the War Potential of Western Germany following the lines suggested in the questionnaires to member nations (see TCC-REPLY GE). On 1 February 1952 the Allied High Commission asked the EB to examine the capacity of the Federal Republic of Germany to contribute to the common defence in 1952/1953 (see TCC-D/26 ). West Germany was asked to produce a survey and study on its public budget as a basis for the initiation of negotiations on the amount and composition of the future German defence contribution (see G-1). Statistical data on German expenditure was analysed by the EB (see G-2 to G-6) and several memoranda were issued by the German Government related to the German contribution (see G-12 and G-14). After analysing this data, the EB produced a report on Germany’s contribution to Defence 1952/1953 (see G-13-REV2 and G-17 (not found)).
