General Dwight D. Eisenhower’s letter from June 6 1944.
This is one of the original letters which was distributed to all Allied airmen, sailors, soldiers and airborne units on the evening before D-Day. The letter has been carried through D-Day by an Allied soldier, and therefore it has been folded to be kept in a pocket. On the back of the letter there is a few hand written notes. Even though the letter shows signs of usage, it is still in great condition, complete with no tears.
The letter measures 6 x 9 inches. Bought in Canada, October 2011
