British Casualties in Afghanistan - Analysis up to August 31st 2009

Analysis of casualty data up to the end of August 30th 2009 has now been published for British forces in Afghanistan.

The analysis shows the continued elevation of British casualties despite the end of operation Panthers Claw on the 27th July. While there has been some reduction from the peak of British casualties seen during the operation, the August casualty levels are the second highest monthly totals since the start of the war in 2001.
