Dwight Eisenhower WWII Letter Written To Mamie Eisenhower a Month After D-Day

Dwight Eisenhower WWII Letter Written To Mamie Eisenhower a Month After D-Day

General Dwight D. Eisenhower was Supreme Commander of the Allied Expeditionary Forces on June 6, 1944, otherwise known as "D-Day." This love letter to Mamie was presented by "Officer Courier Only." The tremendous content speaks of the London bombing overhead and having to "go to our shelters 19 times." The pressure is unspeakable with him doing so much he still says after each day, "What have I done?" He also expresses concern for Mamie's overall health. Undated as to year, it is likely July 21, 1944 as he cannot speak to his son John, likely his first year in the military (1944). Signed "Your Dwight" but also signed in full on the envelope. The letter, envelope and photo of the Eisenhowers are all matted and framed, measuring 23" x 16". Historically important. JSA LOA. Eisenhower would later serve two terms as president between 1953 and 1961. "D-Day" was the largest amphibious invasion in world history and was executed by land, sea and air forces. 73,000 Americans took part.
