A daily life beyond legend

Often surrounded by myths and secrets since its creation, the command of the special forces remains little known across the Rhine, justifies the Bundeswehr. " For the first time, we provide a comprehensive insight into the day-to-day working life of the KSK, free from captions, but still preserving the secrecy that is important to our survival. says Dirk von Holleben, head of marketing for the Bundeswehr.

20 episodes until mid-December

During more than 20 episodes, which will be broadcast in the coming weeks, everyone can follow the daily life of these forces. We can follow KSK support personnel in the jungles of Belize or commandos during an international special forces exercise in Denmark. All told by the photographer and adventurer Robert Marc Lehmann, who accompanied the KSK on their travels and lent his eye and his voice to describe their work.
