very interesting and well written report.

I interviewed twice a member of the Commandos. They were kind of the First Special Forces in history.

:wub: Thank you for your kind comments.

It is a filler while other Newsposts and new Guides are being prepared - so hopefully, they will be out shortly!

While I appreciate the sentiment, there are just too many examples of other "special forces" going all the way back to biblical times.

Tale of Gideon (I quickly copied what was in Wikipedia):

"He went on to send out messengers to gather together men from the tribes of Asher, Zebulun, and Naphtali, as well as his own tribe of Manasseh, in order to meet an armed force of the people of Midian and the Amalek that had crossed the Jordan River, and they encamped at the Well of Harod in the Valley of Jezreel. But God informed Gideon that the men he had gathered were too many – with so many men, there would be reason for the Israelites to claim the victory as their own instead of acknowledging that God had saved them. God first instructed Gideon to send home those men who were afraid. Gideon invited any man who wanted to leave, to do so; 22,000 men returned home and 10,000 remained. Yet with the number, God told Gideon they were still too many and instructed him to bring them to the water and to keep only those who raised the water to their mouth, and while doing so, drank the water lapping it with their tongues as a dog laps. This amounted to 300 men (Judges 7:4–7)."

(That the men raised the water to their mouths with one hand indicated that they still held their weapons in the other, all the while staying alert by not drinking the water directly with their mouths.)

They went on to use night and surprise to defeat a larger force.
