The 172nd Combat Engineers went into France on Utah beach on D-Day. They worked their way from there through Metz, France and on through Aachen, Julich, Cologne and Hamm. They helped break the Zeigfried line, fought in the Battle of the Bulge, and built the bridge over the Rhine river.

Topographical Engineer battalions were the ones who printed maps for the army. They were probably assigned to an Army or a Group command Headquarters. The 66th Topographical Engineers worked in Italy and prepared many of the maps for that area. I will try to look up the history of the 664 Top. Engr. in my reference book.
