You are bidding on a SUPERB and 100% original WW2 German Wehrmacht Panzer Document featuring the signature of BOTH General Josef Harpe & Friedrich Bernhard!  Unlike most of the autographs you see, this is a WARTIME signed document (not post-war).


 Josef Harpe (21 September 1887 – 14 March 1968) was a German general during World War II who commanded the 9th Army. He was a recipient of the Knight’s Cross of the Iron Cross with Oak Leaves and Swords of Germany.

He served on the Eastern Front, where he commanded XXXXI Panzer Corps and the 9th Army. From September 1944 to January 1945 Army Group A, when he was relieved of his command due to the inability of German forces to stop the Soviet Vistula–Oder Offensive. He ended the war commanding the 5th Panzer Army on Western Front.

Friedrich Bernhard (October 5, 1888 – December 29, 1945) was a German Lieutenant-General of the Cavalry, serving during World War II as a Panzer commander; he was a recipient of the German Cross in Gold on 17 March 1944.  He held command of Special Corps 532 in the 9th Army. Captured by the Red Army in 1945.

Made of paper, this document is in EXCELLENT condition!  Featuring signatures of both Josef Harpe and Friedrich Bernhard, it is dated March 28, 1944, and is a signed evaluation of Oberst Friedrich Jurgen, Pz. Gren. Stab. zbV 18, whom it is indicated was awarded a Knight’s Cross. Bernhard signs at the conclusion as the commander of Special Corps 532 in the 9th Army. Harpe signs beneath as Commander-in-Chief of the 9th Army with a typed endorsement, agreeing with Bernhard’s assessment that Jurgen is suited to command a division. Friedrich Jurgen (1895-1954) received the Knights Cross for his actions as the Commander of a Schtzen-Batallion within the Second Panzer Division, where he forced a crossing over the Maas River and distinguished himself in the capture of Fortress Boulogne.  Some marks, wear, and creases due to the age, but nothing that detracts.  100% original, it would look EXCELLENT framed!  A PERFECT addition to any collection or display!
