AbstractThe training of mountain troops was from the very outset in 1940 a project requiring the combined efforts of the Army and representatives of the National Ski Association. Best results were possible when the prerogatives of Army command were subordinated to the superior knowledge and skills of the mountaineering experts who had come into the Army from civilian life, and when at the same time the experts subordinated their enthusiasm for their specialties to Army discipline. That such rapprochement could be and was in some instances achieved is evident from the official documents and from this study. But there are also unmistakable indications that in some areas of the Mountain Training Center command, conflict in purposes instead of cooperation prevailed. This conflict is in the official records, and any impartial study of the Mountain Training Center's activities will reveal it.
