Synopsis: Recounts the adventures of the U.S. soldiers who led the way to the Battle of the Bulge
From the Inside Flap:
t, there was no bridge too far. From Normandy to the heart of Germany itself, the 291st Engineer Combat Battalion literally paved the way for the Allies' final march to victory in Europe. Comprised of the best and the toughest among American enlisted men, proving they could take the worst of combat, and more important, give it back, the 291st both built and blew up vital bridges, stood its ground against the crushing Panzer spearhead during the Battle of the Bulge, and provided critical access over the Rhine in the face of enormous resistance.
This is the 291st's story, dramatically told by the man who served as its commander.

Embossed label of the former owner, a noted military collector. From Library Journal: "Why did the 291st Engineer Combat Battalion stand its ground during the Battle of the Bulge when many combat and support outfits broke and fled? According to Pergrin, former commanding officer, pride, morale, training, and leadership caused the 291st to be named the premier engineer battalion in Europe in World War II. The battalion built the first bridge over the Rhine in the face of murderous enemy fire. Their stubborn stand during the Bulge enabled the U. S. First Army to reform and decisively counterattack. The 291st's part in the Bulge has been described in Janice Holt Giles's The Damned Engineers and in the G. I. Journal of Sergeant Giles, which she edited. Pergrin's work traces the history of the battalion from its formation and training through the campaigns in France, Belgium, and Germany. An exciting, well-written book that belongs in every World War II collection." ; 9.20 X 6.40 X 1.30 inches; 337 pages. Bookseller Inventory # 40851
