(1890 - 1969) 34th President of the United States, Supreme Commander of Allied forces in Europe during World War II and largely responsible for the successful invasion on D-Day. T.L.S. on his A.E.F. Supreme Commander letterhead, 1p. 8vo., [n.p.], Dec. 18, 1944. Two days after the German spearhead crashed through the American lines in the Ardennes starting the Battle of the Bulge, Ike takes time to thank a lady for sending: "...such a fine Christmas card. Thank you so much for your good wishes, which I fully reciprocate..." The envelope is signed by Lt. Col. ERNEST R. "TEX" LEE as censor, who served as Eisenhower's aide for the length of the war. Glue remnants on verso of letter cause light toned spots and some puckering, still very good.
