    Nahh,they're human,we're trying not to use humans.And this sport is about humans,mainly.Men in particular.They're not bureaucratic,they adapt and they believe in what they do.
    If I'd have reasons for optimism is that the Legion can beat the crap out of them in very endeavour.Be it innovation,resilience or harshness.Let's hope they grab enough of them before they melt in the desert,only to show up again 2000 km's from Mali.

    Since the German Army just started a badly, badly done series of videos from the Mali mission as a recruitment device i've looked around a bit on what else has been done that way - officially.

    The Dutch Army has the "Dagboek von Onze Helden" ("Diary of Our Heroes") series which in 2015 did a very "on the spot" series of videos in Mali:

    Turn on subtitles - they're available in English.

    Episode 1 of 8, overall length for full series is about an hour:

    (Note: some episodes include combat footage. No graphic footage, although there are dead too.)


    And, with 1.3 million views watched quite a bit more, from the French MoD a 53-minute documentary on OP Serval (i.e. on the initial entry op):
