Alfred Regenburg's WW2 Bronze Star Medal Citation

Alfred Regenburg’s Bronze Star Medal Citation

US Paratrooper Silk Escape Map Pouch with original contents

A scarce and very rare Airborne escape and evasion map pouch, that could have been used for operations like Market Garden and Varsity. The pouch contains silk escape maps C & D of Europe, the original escape compass (very rare, because it almost always got lost) and a few German money notes. Both the pouch and the contents are in totally mint condition. This is a true museum quality item!

Normandy Scrapbook (95th Infantry Divison)

Amazing and unique WW2 scrapbook. The book covers a the veteran, Private Lewis Roland Blaney’s induction into the army and into the 95th Infantry Divison. Mr. Blaney landed with Patton’s Army on Normandy June 7th, 1944 (D-Day Plus 1) and served in Europe until March 1945. The book also covers this period.

A map is included where the veteran has traced his route through Europe. A lot of different items are in this book, including several photographs, newspapers, patches, army forms from General Patton and General Bradley, a small German Nazi flag, a Safe Conduct pass from General Eisenhower, a Special Orders pamphlet from Bradley on American-German Relations and much, much more.

The state of the scrapbook is fragile. The back and cover is torn and many pages are torn and loose. Nevertheless, this is a truly magnificent piece of personal war history.

Eisenhower D-Day Letter

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

An important piece of history
It is said that he D-Day letter changed the moral of the men and women that helped make the D-Day invasion a success. Without this important document the war could have been drastically changed. The D-Day letter is one of the most important documents because it inspired greatness in all who read it. Eisenhower called for nothing but total and complete victory, and that is exactly what he got.
