(1891-1960) German air force officer during both World War I and World War II, named Inspector of Fighters with rank of major general in 1938. His close friendship with Hermann Goering, who flew with Loertzer in the First World War, led to Loerzer's promotion to Generaloberst by the war's end. Goering described Loerzer as 'his laziest general,' but noted: 'I need someone I can drink a bottle of red wine with in the evening.' Rare partly-printed D.S. as General of the II. Fliegerkorps, 1p. 8vo., 'Gefechtstand' ('Combat Headquarters'), Nov. 14, 1939, awarding the Iron Cross, Second Class to one Oberfeldwebel Wilhelm Moller. Loerzer signs at bottom in blue ink.
