    Description

    George S. Patton Jr. Signed Envelope. 6.75" x 3.75". Patton has placed his signature at the upper left of an envelope addressed to the wife of General George C. Marshall in Fort Myer, Virginia. The envelope is postmarked June 5, 1944, just one day before the Allied invasion of Normandy - D-Day. Patton, who was in England training his new 3rd Army, took no part in the invasion and was being used as a diversion in Operation Fortitude (the German command feared Patton more than any Allied general). Patton and his new army arrived in France one month later and began the march toward German.
