(1907 - 1990) American general and commander of the 82nd Airborne at Normandy and in the Battle of the Bulge. Fine content T.L.S. on "Headquarters Allied Forces Southern Europe" letterhead, 2pp. 4to., Naples, Nov. 12, 1952 to a member of the 82nd Airborne veterans' group. In part: "...There is no doubt whatsoever in my mind that Korea could have been prevented if we had a sizable Airborne force ready to move at once...Even after the Inchon landing if we had the capability to move up to Yalta by air the entire mess, too, could have been stopped. As it is, there is no telling how it will come out, despite our new President's good intentions I am sure it will prove a very difficult task for him..." Very good. The reference to Yalta is unclear, to say the least!
