Camp X was mainly run by the British but they hired William Stephenson which is the founder of camp X. The camp was also very popular about 1400 cadets at its peak and trained them to a “make or break” point at the camp just like in the the movie “the recruit” but only real and rougher.
Training was taken very seriously and didn’t wait for anyone at this camp and some even died during training. Form the crack of dawn till the stroke of midnight and was rigorous and brought the feeling of exhaustion. It specialized in fitness, hand to hand combat ( the silent kill )map reading, secret writing, explosives, security and of course intelligence. After someone left the camp they could kill someone in 15 seconds with their bare harsh hands.Camp X made sure that they had courses in all aspects for cadets to reach full potential and they surely did.
