Abstract:

This essay reviews the historical trends in the employment of combat engineer support to tactical mobility operations. Historical perspectives from US Army operations since the Revolutionary War formulate trends in the relative priority given to tactical mobility versus other traditional engineer roles. The insights gained from the historical review are presented as a set of questions designed to help the AirLand Battle commander more clearly focus on the critical issues associated with modern mobility operations.
