REVIEW: TV: COMMANDO - ON THE FRONTLINE
Okay, this has got to be one of the best things ever shown on TV. Pity it was not on Australian TV. I found this, or rather a link to it while ready through the Australian Military Services Forums. It's an eight part series following a unit of recruits for the British Royal Marines. Their training goes for 9 months and most of those that pass are sent to Afghanistan immediately. The camera swaps from training to A-stan all throughout and the combat footage from the embed is fantastic.
This is a must see.
