KARL DONITZ
He signed this typescript of the Instrument of Surrender, an agreement he had negotiated, in 1974.
Typescript signed: "Donitz/12.7.74", 1 page 8½x11. Typescript of the Instrument of Surrender of All German Forces (originally signed at Rheims, France, 1945 May 7. During WWII, German Grand Admiral Karl Dönitz (1891-1980, born in Grünau-bei-Berlin, Germany) developed the idea of fighting in wolf packs. In January 1943, Hitler named Dönitz to replace Erich Raeder as Commander in Chief of the German Navy. In that capacity, Dönitz gave permission for a radically improved U-boat to be built in 1944. Working closely with Albert Speer, the Minister of Armaments, Germany was producing 42 of these all-electric boats a month by 1945, but it was too late to make an impact on the outcome of the war. As the war was coming to a close, Hitler selected Dönitz to succeed him as Führer. After forming a new government, Führer Dönitz negotiated Germany's surrender on May 5, 1945. At the Nuremberg War Crimes Trials, Dönitz was found guilty of war crimes and was sentenced to ten years in prison. Center horizontal fold crease. Fine condition.
