About this title


2002 is the 100th anniversary of the New Zealand Army Engineering Corps. This book follows the history of the corp over the past 100 years from the South African wars through to East Timor. Sappers as military engineers are known have played a vital part in New Zealand's military history. From their original role as tunnellers under enemy lines they now play an even more important part in providing everything a working army needs from a temporary bridge to fresh water supplies. Highly illustrated this book will appeal to former members of the corp, as well as those interested in military history and engineering.
