Hi,

Thought I would just point you to the US Army translation of the German Army document entitled `Training and Tactics of Ski Troops` dated 01.08.42, which outlines these procedures in full :

http://www.cgsc.edu/carl/wwIIspec/number20.pdf

Please see my other mail in this section on US Army Assessments of the German Army - including winter warfare and Mountain warfare booklets

Regards

Steve
