Ww2 Luftwaffe General Feldmarschall Kesselring Kc Oakl.swds.diamds.top Sgnd Foto For Sale
Genuine, authenitc, original hand signedphotographof Luftwaffe Generalfeldmarschall Albert Kesselring.
Kesselringwas among the highest ranked Armed Forces commanders in the Third Reich, and one of the most highly decorated German soldiers of WW2.
Kesselring had an extraordinary military career and proved himself a success in air power command and in field infantry, panzer and airpowercommand.
During WW2, he was shot down by a Polish plane in the Invasion of Poland, one of 5 times during the War, and personnally received his Knights Cross from the Fuhrer for his successful military leadership.
He distinguished himself as overall Luftwaffe commander in the Mediterranean in support the Italian-German North African campaign, and later the painful withdrawal all the way up Italy of German forces which were under his overall command.
Because of his personal bravery and successful military leadership, Kesselring was awarded the Knights Cross of the Iron Cross with Oakleaves, Swords and Diamonds...one of only 27 soldiers to receive this high honor during the War. And he also was appointed (5 Star) Generalfeldmarshall, one of only 27 Field Marshalls/Grand Admirals during the War.
The photograph and mat measures: 3.5 x 4.75 inches, and the interior photograph shows Kesselring in his Luftwaffe generals uniform with hand drawn title of Chief of Air Fleet One and Commander in Chief of the East (Der Chef der Luftflotte 1 und Befehlshaber Ost) above and Kesselring has signed his name below in black fountain pen ink. The foto and mat were carefully laid down against another gold colored mat. This is when General Kesselring was in command of the German Air Force in the East, probably 1939-1940, and was likely a special gift to a HJ Youth group because of the elaborate title presentation. I have had several Kesselring signed fotos over the years, but I believe this to be the most attractive and interesting! I have never seen another! Rare. In very good/excellent condition.
I have been a member of the ManuscriptSociety since 1956 and am selling part of my collection. See my other offers.
