Also see . . . Operation Safari (Wikipedia). "Operation Safari (German: Unternehmen Safari) was a German military operation during World War II involving 9,000 German soldiers. Launched with the intention of disarming the Danish military, it led to the scuttling of the Royal Danish Navy, and internment of all Danish soldiers. On the Danish side it resulted in 23–26 dead, and around 40–50 injured. A total of 4,600 Danish personnel were captured. German losses were reported as one killed and eight wounded, although they may have been as high as 11 killed and 59 wounded." (Submitted on December 21, 2018.)
