Typed Letter Signed: "Mark W. Clark", 1p, 6x8. Headquarters Fifth Army, Office of the Commanding General, APO 464, 1944 October 9. To Frank J. Beebee, Newtonville, Mass. In full: "I have received your letter of September 8th and the card with my monogram which you enclosed. I wish to thank you for your thoughtfulness in sending it to me. I am enclosing the autographed photograph which you requested." Mark W. Clark (1896-1984) was Eisenhower's deputy during Operation Torch, the 1942 invasion of North Africa. In January 1943, Clark was appointed Commanding General of the Fifth Army and prepared for the invasion of Italy, which began in September. On June 4, 1944, Clark's Fifth Army entered Rome. The Fifth Army continued its advance but was stopped short of Bologna in October at about the time he wrote this letter. During the last week of April 1945, Clark received the surrender of 230,000 German and enemy troops in Italy, the Tyrol and Salzburg. Folds, light vertical fold just touches "W" in signature. Lightly creased at upper right blank corner. Overall, fine condition.
