Generally regarded as a supporting arm, but often more in the thick of the action than many members of the "teeth" arms, the engineers have a wide range of responsibilities. Their primary tasks can, nevertheless, be set out very simply - to aid the mobility of own forces and hinder that of the enemy.

"The shock or psychological effect which comes to troops on the receiving end of a massed armour assault is terrific."
