Historical information:

A sapper or combat engineer is a combatant soldier who performs a wide variety of combat engineering duties, typically including, but not limited to, bridge-building, laying or clearing minefields, demolitions, field defences, general construction and building, as well as road and airfield construction and repair. He is also trained to serve as an infantryman when needed in both defensive and offensive operations and is fully involved in modern counter-insurgency operations. A sapper"s tasks have, throughout history, including modern day counter-insurgency operations, been devoted to the mission-critical tasks involving facilitating movement and logistics of allied forces and impeding that of enemies. This active combatant career field is normally limited to males in most countries due to legislation.

The term "sapper" is used in British Army, Polish Army or Commonwealth nations" military services. In the United States Army and United States Air Force, the term sapper leader has been instituted to indicate combat engineers who meet additional professional qualifications that demonstrate a certain level of proficiency and accomplishment as a small unit leader of combat engineers. An ordinary engineer who has completed his training is called a pioneer. The German Army uses the term Pionier, while sapeur is used in the French Army, and guastatore (more precisely defined as an assault engineer) in the Italian Army.
