A comprehensive history of the WW II U.S. Army Engineer Special Brigades and their component units.
From formation and training in England to D-Day itself as told by surviving veterans. Some elements landed on Omaha and Utah beaches in the first waves, then spent six months bringing supplies, men and vehicles over the open beaches.
A story never before told, using archive material, personal documents, photographs and statistical data.
Has been re-written following so much more information that has been forthcoming since original publication.
The original edition first published in 1994 is still available from RTBassBooks.
