See also:absence of large scale detailed maps made
See also:local guides almost essential to the direction of military operations, and in the 18th century the general tendency to the stricter organization of military re-
See also:sources led in various countries to the
See also:special training of
See also:officers (called Feldjager, and considered as general
See also:staff officers in the Prussian army), whose chief
See also:duty it was to find, and if necessary establish, routes across country for those parts of the army that had to move parallel to the
See also:main road and as nearly as possible at deploying
See also:interval from each other, for in those days armies were rarely spread out so far as to have the use of two or more made roads . But the
See also:necessity for such precautions died away when adequate surveys (in which guide officers were, at any
See also:rate in Prussia, freely employed) were carried out, and, as a definite
See also:term of military organization to-
See also:day, "guide" possesses no more essential peculiarity than
See also:grenadier or rifleman . The
See also:genesis of the
See also:modern " Guide " regiments is perhaps to be found in a
See also:Corps of Guides formed by
See also:Napoleon in Italy in 1796, which appears to have been a

See also:body guard composed of men who knew the country . In the Belgian army of to-day the Guide regiments correspond almost to the Guard

See also:drill, a " guide " is an officer or non-commissioned officer told off to regulate the direction and
See also:pace of movements, the
See also:remainder of the unit maintaining their alignment and distances by him . A particular class of guides are those employed in
See also:mountaineering; these are not merely to show the way but stand in the position of professional climbers with an expert knowledge of
See also:rock and snowcraft, which they impart to the
See also:amateur, at the same time assuring the safety of the climbing party in dangerous expeditions . This professional class of guides arose in the
See also:middle of the 19th century when Alpine climbing became re-cognized as a
See also:sport (see MOUNTAINEERING) . It is thus natural to find that the Alpine guides have been requisitioned for mountaineering expeditions all over the
