They did a real good job at the Malmedy/Stavelot perimeter in the Ardennes by blowing up a bridge to prevent the Peiper panzer div. to cross the river .
They were also the first Bn to witness the Massacre of Malmedy where the Krauts executed 82 POW.
I’m doing some research on Captain Paul Kamen , who got KIA somewhere around Remagen 3 days before the end of the war .
I can use all the info you guys got .

Was wondering with all of the material you researched and the books that you wrote, do you have information on where and what the 291st Combat Engr. was doing from April 45 through May 46? My father was inteh 3rd Army 291st Engr. Combat BN as a Tech 5, but he did not arrive in EAMET until 11 April 45 and left for the USA on 15 May 46. So I know he hwas not there for the Battle of the Bulge. Most info that I can find on teh 291st, and believe me I am a total rookie with this talks about the Battle of the Bulge and right after. I am unable to speak to my father about this as he passed away 2 years ago.
