(1907 – 1994) German paratroop officer who commanded a battalion during the Battle of Crete, also commander of the Fallschirm-Lehrbataillon, part of the Ramcke Parachute Brigade. Heydte was given command of a regiment of the 2nd Fallschirmjäger Division and took part in the Battle of Carentan, Operation Lüttich, and in fighting against the Allied forces in Operation Market Garden. Important war-date document, 1p. legal folio, June 20, 1944, addressed to von der Heydte at the height of the fighting in Normandy. The "Secret" telegram recommends per the Commander of the Fallschirm-Armee Oberkommando that von der Heydte be expediently promoted from hauptmann to major for his exceptional achievements in battle along the invasion front. A bit brittle, esp. at the margins, file holes, else very good.
