Summary:
It is arguably the most important element of warfare, and undoubtedly one of the least heralded. But were it not for the men who literally lay the groundwork for war, many of history's famous battles might have turned out differently. BATTLEFIELD ENGINEERING is a comprehensive introduction to this overlooked military art, whose practitioners lay roads and rails, build bridges, airfields, hospitals and support facilities and destroy enemy mines and fortifications. Discover how the first "mine detectors" were women with kettles of water who watched for the ripples caused by mines being dug under castle walls! Hear Army Corps of Engineers veterans tell of the stunning solution to one of D-Day's biggest problems building a much-needed artificial harbor in England and floating it across the Channel to France. And see footage of engineers working in the harsh conditions of the Iraqi desert to demolish defenses so coalition forces could sweep toward Bagdad. Extensive interviews with veterans and military historians combined with gripping footage makes this an illuminating look at the dangerous and vital world of BATTLEFIELD ENGINEERING.
