The reason why soldiers march in step, is to keep up the pace and encourage everyone to be smart and do the 'slog' in the quickest possible time.

In the British Army, you will be expected to march a distance of 10 miles in 2 hours - that's about 5mph - that is best described as a "cracking pace".

If you are ever in London, go to the Albert Bridge [Chelsea] and you can see a notice there which orders marching troops to 'break step'.

because they are soldiers, they fight and stand for a country, they need to show they are all united in arms, show disipline, order and bravery! thats why, they need great respect and honour! they show all these when they march.

Have you tried walking in a crowd - you either clip someone heel or you get your own heels clipped and it can be quite painful - marching is quite a quick way to get companies of soldiers from one place to another on foot.

Its efficient faster and more organised than walking. In centuries past on the battle field men marched into position it was like a giant game of chess lol. but it really is faster and more efficient form of moving large numbers of people at once

Marching in formation is an orderly way to move troops from one location to another.
Walking is without order, some walk fast, some walk slow. Marching is the one way to control the situation.

Close order drill, or marching used to be the way commanders maneuvered units in actual combat, watch a civil war movie and you will understand.

What they discovered is that close order drill is a good way to move units around in non-combat, as well as teach good order and discipline.

In boot camp close order drill is seen as a building block for teaching raw recruits discipline and obedience to orders.

Now close order drill is used to teach discipline, teamwork, and is used for ceremonial occasions, instead of being a method of battlefield maneuver.
