A beautiful presentation in a wood shadow box, includes three items signed by some of the most prominent military leaders of World War II. Included are: IRWIN ROMMEL, S.P. 4" x 5 3/4" color, an artist's image of Rommel in uniform while serving in North Africa, boldly signed in black pencil in the white bottom margin; WALTHER MODEL S.P. 3 3/4" x 5 1/2" b/w, a chest, up pose of the general in uniform signed in pencil at bottom, and BERNARD LAW MONTGOMERY, his signature: "B. L. Montgomery General". The photos and signature are tastefully matted in black felt with two full size copies of a field marshal's shoulder boards and one copy of Montgomery's shoulder boards. Of course, Montgomery faced both of these generals in combat: Rommel in North Africa, and Model at Arnhem. He admired their prowess so much that later in life he had their portraits, the exact same images we offer, displayed in his office! A photo of retired Field Marshal Montgomery with these portraits visible behind him is matted in this display. Overall very good to fine condition. A brilliant assembly!
