Description


Rare glossy 8 x 10 photo, boldly signed and inscribed in black fountain pen “To Gen Kenner, from G. S. Patton, Jr.” In very good condition, with neatly trimmed right edge, scattered overall creasing, small tear to lower edge, and missing lower left corner tip. This striking photograph is inscribed to Major General Albert Kenner, the chief medical officer for Operations Torch and Overlord: the invasions of French North Africa and Normandy, respectively. An absolutely iconic image of General Patton—captured during his prime—it was used for the cover of January 15, 1945’s issue of LIFE magazine. A more ideal combination of WWII relevancy, stunning image quality, and autographic rarity could scarcely be imagined.

Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
