Australian Commandos are ranked in the world’s top three elite military units, often deployed alongside US and British Special Forces. They are more than brave warriors; they are self-punishing super men with the mental resolve to overcome their human failings in order to complete the most dangerous of missions.
With exclusive access, Commandos follows the Forces’ most elite and decorated instructors through the highs and lows as they select, punish and prepare the next generation of ‘green berets’. They break each soldier down in order to test their physical toughness and mental resolve and refine the skills they need to stay alive, striving to do their job with honour, courage and extraordinary personal sacrifice.
From training to live conflict with Taliban loyalists in Afghanistan – some men will fail, some will be injured, some may even die.
