The Danish Navy on the hunt

Like latter-day Vikings, the Danish Navy tours the treacherous Gulf of Aden hunting for Somali pirates. Monocle goes aboard HDMS Absalon to join the fit-for-action forces as they deal carefully with these dangerous and desperate criminals, and to witness how to run a successful military operation when you are an egalitarian Dane.
