(1890 - 1969) 34th President of the United States, Supreme Commander of Allied forces in Europe during World War II and largely responsible for the successful invasion on D-Day. Excellent content and association I.S.P., 8" x 10" b/w, recreating an artist's portrait of a seated Eisenhower. He signs at the conclusion in black ink, adding the dedication: "For Lt. Gen. Clarence R. Huebner - brilliant battle leader in two world wars - with warm regards from his friend". The image is affixed to a heavy cardboard backing and shows bumps to the corners, else very good. CLARENCE R. HUEBNER (1888-1972) was the American general who commanded the 1st Infantry Division, popularly known as the "Big Red One", in early August of 1943. He commanded the division during the D-Day landings on June 6, 1944, where it was the first force to face the Germans on Omaha Beach, and he joined his men on the beach the same day. The division was instrumental in the battle for St. Lo and in foiling the German counteroffensive at Mortain. After the Allied breakout in Normandy, the division advanced rapidly, arriving at the German border in early October of 1944, where it was committed to battle at Aachen, which it captured after two weeks of heavy fighting. After experiencing heavy fighting once again in the Huertgen Forest, the division briefly rested but soon returned to counter the German offensive at the Battle of the Bulge in December of 1944. In January of 1945, Huebner was named commander of the V Corps, which he commanded in its advance to the Elbe river, where elements of the corps made the first contact with the Soviet Red Army. By war's end, the division had advanced into Czechoslovakia. Following the German surrender, Huebner served as the Chief of Staff for all American forces in Europe, and in 1949 was named the final military governor of the American occupation zone in Germany. This signed photo originates directly from General Huebner's estate and is accompanied by a letter of provenance signed by a direct linear descendant.
