Does the army use more energy training its soldiers or going to war?

    I don’t think we can find data published on this, so I’ll give a rundown of the energy of each. Remember that each individual component uses energy in some fashion.
    War: greater transportation and equipment cost
    Training: greater housing cost (?)
    Relatively Equal: food cost

    Given this simple analysis, I’d say the army uses more energy in going to war, or at least strategically positioning troops even if that area is not in a war. Soldiers are probably positioned more than they are in training, which supports that wartime energy use would be greater.
