Overview

The 49th Engineer Combat Battalion is called the "Ghost Battalion" because so little is known about this fascinating unit in WWII and its contributions to history. The 49th landed on Utah Beach on D-day, clearing beach obstacles, mines, taking and holding key points, building bridges and rescuing Airborne soldiers trapped behind enemy lines. Follow this unit through major campaigns and battles including Ardennes (Battle of the Bulge), Huertgen Forest, Cherbourg, Cologne Plain and Ruhr Pocket. This is a true historical rendering of their story taken from actual unit journals, battle casualty reports, photos and maps.
