    Description

    [Dwight D. Eisenhower] Broadside of Eisenhower's Proclamation Announcing the Liberation of France, June 1944. One page, 16.5" x 16.75", printed, in French. The poster announces, "Citoyens Francais: Le jour de la dèliverance se lève" (Citizens of France, The day of deliverance has broken). Eisenhower assures the French that, "Avec nos valeureux alliès russes, nous marchons vers la victoire certain" (With our valorous Russian allies we march toward the certain victory). These broadsides were posted in the liberated areas around the Normandy beachheads in June 1944 by the American, British, Canadian, and Free French forces that finally breeched Adolf Hitler's "Fortress Europe". Very few of these broadsides survived due to their fragile nature and the intervening sixty-five years. Toning, staining, and folds, else very good.
