History Of The Second Engineer Special Brigade
This is the story of the Second Engineer Special Brigade in World War II. An amphibian unit of the Corps of Engineers, U. S. Army, it was first designated as the Second Engineer Amphibian Brigade, the present title having been adopted after arrival in Australia early in 1943. Its entire foreign service was devoted to the Pacific theater of operations, and at no time after the brigade entered combat in New Guinea was it ever pulled out for rest, which caused General Krueger, Sixth Army Commander, to observe that the brigade has been in more combat operations than any other unit in the theater.
The following units made up the brigade:
Brigade Heaquarters & Headquarters Company
532d Engineer Boat & Shore Regiment
542d Engineer Boat & Shore Regiment
592d Engineer Boat & Shore Regiment
