New book, 152 pages, 278 photos and diagrams. Danish Leopard 2A5 Main Battle Tanks were deployed to Afghanistan from 2007 to 2014 as part of Denmark's contribution to the NATO ISAF mission. The purpose of this book is to tell the story of the Danish tankers who manned these vehicles. Their tales will be told, as the soldiers told them to me. This, you will get insight into some very personal stories about the experiences of the crew members, while they were 'at work' in Afghanistan. The Leopard 2 tanks were deployed in Afghanistan as a direct fire unit which could support the Danish infantry units. This book is about the men who operated these machines in their own words, crews extensively interviewed to gain an insight into the life of a tanker in an alien operational theatre thousands of miles from home.
