Originality/value of the paper – It is the first time that a researcher was allowed to follow all activities and study a class in Saint-Cyr during the three-year training period. This study provides a look inside the daily cadets’ life and shows that the traditions are not just an anecdotal aspect of cadets’ life, but perfectly witnesses all challenges, power positions, and stakes associated with them.
