Watch the Brits teach these U.S. Marines how to 'fight in the freezer'

U.S. Marines received training from their British counterparts in how to operate in the extreme cold of the Arctic.

British Royal Marines hosted the training and included the obligatory inter-coalition harassment like dumping the Yanks into the cold water . . .
