Video: 24 hours in the French Alps with the Chasseurs Alpins


What does it take to survive in the mountains? Find out as NATO video producers embed with the Chasseurs Alpins ("Alpine Hunters" in English), the French Army's elite mountain infantry unit. Over the course of 24 hours, they trek deep into the French Alps, where they set up camp and run training drills in the challenging mountain terrain. Military operations in the Alps aren't for the faint of heart, and the Chasseurs show how demanding training pays off in expertise.
