    "Rest and recreation" ist der korrekte Ausdruck, und der wird beileibe nicht nur im Krieg benutzt, sondern für alle Urlaube.

    Die offizielle Website der US Army spricht sowohl von "rest and recuperation" (443 Hits), als auch von "rest and relaxation" (359 Hits), als auch von "rest and recreation" (161 Hits).

    Man ist sich also anscheinend selbst nicht so ganz einig.

    For the american army it may be recreation but in England its erholung to be fit to fight again.
