Here’s a great look at the German KSK. If you’ve read my book The Red Circle, then you know that the SEALs did the first US/German joint Special Operations missions in Afghanistan post 9-11. My SEAL platoon was also put under the command of a German KSK Officer-in-Charge during a combat mission and this was another first.
The KSK is a relatively new arm of the Bundeswehr. Enjoy a look.
