10th Mountain Division (Military Power) Reviews
10th Mountain Division, trained to fight in the cold, in the mountains, could ,not find a niche in World War II until near the end of the War, where it fought in Northern Italy keeping the German forces there from retreating into Germany and forced their surrender, and then went on to keep Yugosslav forces from invading the Trieste area. The truly first United States elite military unit.
The 10th Mountain Division, established in WWII as a specialized unit and committed to the final phase of the fighting in Italy, is today one of the U.S. Army's key units in the Global War on Terror.
