Fact sheet on NATO deployments in Afghanistan

Read our Fact Sheet comparing NATO troop deployment figures in Afghanistan

Amidst the debate about NATO becoming a 'two-tier' alliance, we have prepared a Fact Sheet about NATO troop deployments in Afghanistan. We compare troop commitments by individual countries with overall army sizes, and conclude that while the UK comes out on top with 4.29 % of active forces deployed, the US is lower down the list (1%) sandwiched between Luxembourg (1% also) and the Czech Republic (1.04%)
