    Description

    Dwight D. Eisenhower: A Signed Copy of His Memorable Message to the Allied Expeditionary Force as They Embarked on the Normandy Invasion.
    "You are about to embark on the great crusade, toward which we have striven these many months... The tide has turned," wrote Ike. "The free men of the world are marching together to victory. I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty and skill in battle... Good luck! And let us all beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking."

    In 1948, Doubleday published this limited edition of 1426 numbered & signed copies of Eisenhower's book Crusade in Europe. Each incorporated a facsimile of Ike's famed D-Day Order of the Day, as shown. The book has been protected by its original slipcase and is in excellent condition. Copy #715. A highly-sought item by World War II and presidential autograph collectors alike.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
