American or German combat engineers.

Post by Hans__Rudel » 19 Mar 2019 04:40

Recently I’ve been reading a lot of memoirs and biographies about the men who fought in the war, but the one kind of book I haven’t been able to find is a memoir or biography about a combat engineer. Any suggestions? I would deeply appreciate it.
P.S. The book doesn’t just have to be about a German. It can be American or Russian too. :)

How about a Brit?

Sapper Brian Guy landed on D Day. He is a bit crumbly now but was a regular poster on ARRSE

His book is called Sword Beach to Bremen. A Veterans tale
