This article first presents central theories of military sociology about soldiers’ developing of certain military values, attitudes and identities in war operations This question and the factors related to it are then used to ask if soldiers deployed in peace operations develop different military attitudes. The question is then confronted by observations of the practices in a Danish Battalion in KFOR. The field observations found that the Danish soldiers were struggling with competing attitudes originating from both the military training and the objective of the peace operation. It is observed that new concepts and attitudes are in the making such as a new ‘mediator identity’, but that the warrior identity still dominates due to the varied intertwined processes of the daily practices of the military organization.
