If possible, please request General Harpe for permission to send me via courier your enemy position report with a description of the evens in the space around Gomel and the southwest and west of Kritschev. It is to be hoped that your well-proven sixth sense will provide the basis for appropriate countermeasures in this instance as well. The problem will always remain: how can one best prevent or counter penetration or breaches of formal fronts, that is, thinly manned sections. It simply is not possible without reserves. Thus, it is hoped that they were able to give you back in a timely manner that which had to be used at other hot spots. The fewer reserves one has, the more important is your visionary eye!... "; FERDINAND SCHÖRNER T.L.S. 1p. 4to., Southern Ukraine, May 1, 1944 in German to Johannes Freissner commanding the Narwa Army Group: "...During my stay at the Furher's Headquarters, I have been able to follow your hard but successful fight on a daily basis. You should not envy me for my position here from the Crimea to the Carpathians. In addition, there is the coalition war and, that, above all, is in the Balkans. But, of course, we will somehow get these things taken care of. I have met only a rolling avalanche here, against which resistance is not easy. Several decisions, for example, the Crimean matter will most likely only be appreciated at a later date... "; ROBERT RITTER VON GREIM D.S. 1p. 8vo., Luftwaffe Kommado Hauptquartier, Jan. 30, 1943; ERICH RAEDER S.P. 4 1/2" x 5 3/4" b/w waist up portrait of the admiral holding his marshal's baton, signature light but legible; KARL DONITZ D.S. 1p. 4to., [n.p.] Mar. 4, 1978, a typed facsimile of the German Instrument of Surrender signed at Rheims, May 7, 1945.
