Book Synopsis
The 95th Engineer General Service Regiment was formed in April 1941 at Fort Belvoir, Virginia and was made up of black enlisted soldiers and mostly white officers. In 1942 they were one of three black regiments (and four white) that built the pioneer road in British Columbia, the Yukon and Alaska known as the Alcan (later Alaska) Highway.

By 1943 the regiment was in England and Wales building invasion and training camps for soldiers leading up to the D-Day invasion. Two weeks after D-Day they landed in France and specialized in repairing damaged railroad tracks and bridges. They went on to Belgium and Germany. They returned to the United States in August of 1945.

An unknown photographer took most of these photographs and provided an Index to the location and subject matter of the pictures. A set of these photographs was owned by Captain Stuart V Bradley, my father, and I present them here, as very little has been written about the 95th, particularly as to their service in Europe.
