GENERAL CLARENCE R HUEBNER SIGNED DOC., WWII OMAHA BEACH, BERLIN, WAR CRIMES

$295.00

Description

General Clarence R. Huebner (1888-1972)  Partial Document Signed, "C. R. Huebner", 8 x 5, c.1948, by the highly decorated senior officer of the United States Army who saw service during both World War I and World War II. As the commander of the "Big Red One", the 1st Infantry Division in WWII, General Huebner led the 1st in the assault on Omaha Beach. He signs here as Chief of Staff, while at the Headquarters, European Command, in the American Zone, Berlin, Germany (a few months later he would become the last Military Governor of the American Zone).This is a Judge Advocate General document issued during the American Zone occupation in Berlin after WWII, in part: "…This headquarters agrees with the opinion of the Theater Judge Advocate and desires to disseminate such holding to all subordinate commands. Because of the importance of the question presented, request is made for the opinion of the War Department as to the jurisdictional question involved."  The Nurnberg and Dachau war-crimes trials were a major focus of the Judge Advocate Generals office at this time: this partial document has probably been redacted to allow the selective disclosure of information while keeping other parts of the document secret. In fine condition, boldly signed, with minor age toning, irregular top, and attached to back strip.
