His ink signature on a photocopy of General Eisenhower's understated message announcing victory in Europe
Photocopied document signed in ink: "Mark Clark", 8½x11. Photocopy of the message sent by Dwight D. Eisenhower as Supreme Commander, Allied Expeditionary Force (SHAEF), originally dated 1945 May 7, to all subordinate commands, announcing Germany's surrender: "The mission of this Allied force was fulfilled at 0241, local time, May 7th, 1945." Mark Wayne Clark (1896-1984), who assumed command of the Fifth Army in North Africa in 1943 and commanded the Fifth Army in the invasion of Italy in 1944, got his fourth star in March 1945. He accepted the surrender of German forces in Italy and Austria and, from 1945 to 1947, was the U.S. High Commissioner in occupied Austria. In 1953, as Commander in Chief of the United Nations Command, he signed the military armistice between the U.N. Command and the North Korean Army and Chinese People's Volunteers in Korea. That year, he also began his 12 years of service as President of The Citadel. He is buried on the campus of The Citadel next to Mark Clark Hall. Usual marks from an early photocopy. Image lightly grainy. Otherwise, fine condition.
