    I'm trying to translate this phrase : 'I managed to survive all the assault courses. bayonet drills and swimming or boating across every river...'

    The 'ant' from in French just doesn't seem particularly French or elegant and I was wondering whether there is an alternative (perhaps a noun) which would convey the meaning, avoiding 'ant'?
