Join us with Dr. Chris Juergens, the Anschutz Associate Curator of Military History at History Colorado, as he discusses the training and deployment of the 10th Mountain Division in World War II. While most western armies had a tradition of mountain and ski troops, the US Army needed to play catch-up, and selected Colorado as the home for a new unit dedicated to this kind of specialized warfare. After years of training, the 10th Mountain Division participated in the brutal fighting in Italy during the last offensives of World War II in Europe.
