Non-US Coalition Troops In Iraq

14 September 2007

The Pentagon has stopped publishing the number of coalition troops in Iraq. This table is an estimate, based upon published news reports. With the exception of the British, coalition troops operate in a non-combat capacity.

There are two sets of data: majors and minors. The definitions for each catagory may change, but currently it's 500 or more troops.
