GENERAL JAMES 'JUMPIN JIM' GAVIN - US 82nd Airborne Division.
One of the most important leaders of the US Airborne Forces in WW2, James 'Jumping Jim' Gavin was a tough commander but never asked his troops to do anything he wasnt prepared to do himself.
He fought in North Africa and then led the 82nd Airborne during the D-day drops, the ill-fated Arnhem 'Operation Market-Garden' and then over the Rhine.
This is a terrific Typed and Signed Letter on 82nd Airborne headed notepaper dated 29 April 1946
A very nice piece
