The Swiss Raid Commando was one of the most enduring and most important military competitions worldwide. It was addressed to very well trained, armed force personnel, who were willing to compete in a "commando" type exercise. It was discontinued after the 18th edition in 2009.
The raiders competed in teams of 4, in which at least one patrol member was required to be either an officer or an NCO. Solid infantry training, an excellent physical condition as well as analytical and above-average judgment skills were vital.
The competition's motto was "Vouloir, Croire et Oser" ("Want, Believe and Dare").

“John Brown and Giuseppe Garibaldi were contemporaries not solely in the matter of time; their endeavors as liberators link their names where other likeness is absent; and the peaks of their careers were reached almost simultaneously: the Harpers Ferry Raid occurred in 1859, the raid on Sicily in the following year. Both events, however differing in character, were equally quixotic.”
—John Cournos (18811956)
