The present publication, an international comparison of stress and stress management of soldiers in international operations, represents an important result of such net-works.
In a mission soldiers are often confronted with ex-tremely stressful situations. As you know from your own experiences or from reports, tasks sometimes have to be fulfilled under enormous pressure, and are often accompa-nied by fear and uncertainties.
In order to reduce such factors as fear and uncertainty it is necessary to receive extensive training and prepara-tion for the scenarios to be expected in a mission. It is therefore a challenge for the commanders to create very realistic scenarios without demanding too much from the soldiers.
