This special issue of “Y” magazine by the Bundeswehr (German Federal Armed Forces) comprises four chapters dealing with the topics of one’s own death, killing in military action, being injured and grief when losing a comrade. The aim was to approach the achievements of soldiers, but also their ultimate commitment and the risk they take of losing their lives, in a manner appropriate in terms of both content and images. The cover design shows the picture of a dead body under a plastic sheet in order to directly yet unobtrusively allude to the topic of death.
