Canadian Forces training back in the 50s was the inspiration for some of the training depicted in the novel, not the general society in Starship Troopers, at least according to the anecdote posted here.
Frankly, I saw definite similarities between my time in Gagetown and the MI training, albeit the training in Starship Troopers is cranked up to 11 and no one died on my Phase training. That said, the OCS in that book was nothing like phase training, and I actually wish we covered some of the stuff that the MI officer candidates did.
