(1894 - 1966) American lieutenant general, commander of the 26th Division during the Battle of the Bulge where it played an important role in the counterattack by Patton's Third Army that reduced the German salient. The 26th then took part in the Western Allied invasion of Germany in March 1945 until the end of of the war. Good lot of three T.L.S.'s on War Department General Staff letterheads, two signed with first name, one in full, 3pp. total 4to., Washington, 1946-48, all sent to CLARENCE R. HUEBNER (1888-1972), American major general who commanded the 1st Infantry Division in its assault on Omaha Beach, in the drive across France, at the Hurtgen Forest and in the battle of Aachen. Fairly routing content discusses Huebner getting involved in obtaining better medical care for a lieutenant son of a mutual friend, the rotation of officers, and also noting: "...I think pride of outfit is one of the finest qualities a soldier can have; it is something we must and will encourage for the good of all..." File holes in margins, else fine. With carbon copies of Huebner's associated letters as well.
