Sale 45 Lot 22

OMAR N. BRADLEY (1893-1981) American general of World War II who commanded the largest ground force ever led by one man. He was later Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, and HASSO VON MANTEUFFEL (1897-1978) Commander of the 5th Panzer Army which spearheaded the ill-fated Ardennes offensive of January 1945. After vainly requesting more help from a vacillating Hitler, he spoke despairingly of "a corporal's war". Terrific S.P. 10" x 8" b/w, an image of the two old war horses seated beside each other and poring over a document, signed by each adding rank and dated 1965. Some toning at margins and in the area of Bradley's forehead, else very good. Sold with a T.L.S. on Bradley's General of the Army letterhead, 1p. 8vo., Washington, Aug. 25, 1969 sending the signed photo. Two pieces.
Estimate $ 400-500
