I voted for Artic/Winter. Here are some pics of the Israeli Unit "Alpinistim", which is responsible for protection of Israels highet mountain and oly sky area, mount Hermon. The mountain is half in Israeli hands alf in Syrian hands, so in war it is expected to be a battlefield. It also has a clear virw deep into Sirya, making it a stratigic asset.

Pictures of the royal marines training in most enviroments. I would think that artic/winter and jungle enviroments would be the most difficult to train and fight in, due to the tempertures and the terrains.

I asked a infantry man this and he told me its mountain fighting hands down. Not because of the weather but because of the ferocity of the fire fights. Trying to make your way up a mountain with 80 fanatical terrorist at the top is not a pretty sight.

So many votes for Artic/Winter???
But that's fun....
We had the first snowfall here yesterday by the way...

I would rather fight in -30C than +40C, I've got no problem with cold weather, I'm used to that, but I'm not comfortable at all in high temperatures..

I don't have any experience with jungle training, but I assume it would be the worst for me, so my vote goes to that...

I think thats the main trouble the allies had in italy in WW2, when the germans had secured the mountains it took a lot of hard fighting to get them out as the terrain has so many advantages if your defending it. The mountains in winter would probably be the worst as you would have to deal with the cold, the ice, snow, weapons freezing, so many problems.

If your at the top of a mountain you can either defeat the enemy or die trying, you cant just retreat. If your lucky they might take you as a pow but seeing how pissed off they would be id doubt it.

Artic and winter because I canīt tell if it would be worse in Deserts because there I have never been so I say winter.

I hate deep snow in combination of sleetsnow storms and drastic dropping temperatures, you get soaky wet of sweat and sleetsnow then you get cold like a snowman and your equipment just drag you deeper and deeper down in the snow to your waist and then a invisible ditch with thin ice and you get wet all up to your thighbones.

I really hate the winter. Out there you only wish that could make a visit with his reindeers and a barrel of hot wine punch.
