Defense of many Danish strongpoints and towns was based mainly on national units, their strength was increased before the war, in 1657. They usually included musketeer units supported by national cavalry companies. However this second formation lacked experience so it was often supported by mercenary cavalry. In the face of the Swedish offensive the local forces were often supported by partisans. The renowned snapphanar were sometimes able to delay the attacking Swedes and to cut their lines of communication.
