The Infantry Divisional Engineer Combat Battalion at the time of this operation consisted of a headquarters and headquarters and Service Company and three line companies. The usual method of employment of engineers within the 83rd Division was to assign one engineer line company to each infantry regimental combat teem. Regiment placed one engineer platoon in direct support of, or attached to each infantry battalion. These assignments remained relatively constant; that is, C Company, 308th Engineers was a part of the 331st Infantry Regimental Combat Teem and worked with no other regiment. The 3rd Platoon of C Company worked with the 3rd Battalion of the 331st Infantry, unless working on tasks assigned by regiment. Engineer work in the rear of the regimental area was usually affected by Corps or Army engineers. THIS ITEM IS SOLD AS A DIGITAL DOWNLOAD ONLY.
