"The rapid tempo of war had led to an increasing speed in the development of equipment. It is probably true that such developments moved at a more rapid rate during the recent war than ever before in the annals of history. In no arm or service of the fighting forces has this development been greater than in the Engineers." - General Sir Thomas A. Blamey

This publication describes the work and achievements of the Royal Australian Engineers throughout the duration of the Second World War.
