    Description

    West Point 1915 Howitzer With Future WWII Commanders Dwight Eisenhower and Omar Bradley. Teammates on the West Point baseball diamond and football field and future WWII commanders, this 1915 Howitzer gives a glimpse of the boys that would become the men who helped win WWII. The United States Military Academy Class of 1915 is known as the "Class That Stars Fell On." Sixty-one of the 164 men in the West Point Class of 1915 attained general's rank. Besides his individual page, Bradley also appears in team baseball and football photographs. Prophetically, his class biography includes the line: "...if he keeps up the clip he's started, some of us will someday be bragging to our grandchildren that 'sure, General Bradley was a classmate of mine'". Eisenhower's biography begins: "This is Senor Dwight David Eisenhower, gentlemen, the terrible Swedish-Jew, as big as life and twice as natural." The book is well worn, with a partially detached spine panel and moderate wear on the corners, otherwise it is in very good condition.
