Danish Troops

Denmark is the country in the ISAF (International Security and Assistance Force), that has had the largest number of casualties compared to the country's population. Out of all the countries, Denmark is also the nation, which has the largest percentage of its soldiers who have died. It is also among the nations with most troops deployed relative to size.

With a new mandate issued by the Danish parliament in 2006, Danish military operations transformed from relatively safe non-combat operations in the centre of the country to combat operations alongside the British contingent in the violent southern Helmand province. Although the last combat troops have now left Afghanistan, a number of Danish defense personnel will remain in the country in order to train the Afghan police force and to man special units and tanks. According to reporting by Politiken newspaper, the roughly 300 Danish soldiers who will remain in Helmand province will participate in combat if necessary but will have the primary focus of securing the withdrawal of other Western forces between now and the end of 2014.

37 soldiers have been killed in various hostile engagements or as a result of friendly fire, and 6 have been killed in non-combat related incidents, bringing the number of Danish fatalities to 43. In addition, 211 soldiers were wounded in action and injured.
