About this title

Synopsis:

Book by Fowle, Barry W., Wright, Floyd D.

From Library Journal:

Although occasionally bogged down in necessary minutiae, this battalion history moves along nicely from activation to its finest hour, the Battle of the Bulge. It offers an honest and accurate portrayal of army combat engineers, busy with sawmill operations, suddenly fighting as infantry, defending several strategic roadblocks. Their command post was in Trois Ponts, a vital Belgian town with three bridges over two rivers. They blew them up as needed to prevent the Germans from crossing and held on admirably until relieved. In the American counteroffensive, the 51st not only cleared roads but built bridges crossing such major rivers as the Roer and Rhine. Throughout the narrative, readers receive a Bridge Building 101 course, from floating, assault, treadway, and trestle bridges to a Double-Double Bailey. The 51st Again! fills a void in regimental histories.
