  • Comments from Curator

    World War II period combat General's groupings are extremely rare to find today. This uniform is one of four in the AAF Tank Museum collection that were acquired from General Hartness's estate. This uniform includes a 70th Infantry Division, Commanding General's Flag which was presented to him attesting to it's provenance. Additional provenance is provided by the additional items that are included with this uniform grouping from his estate. Here is a rare chance to obtain a documented World War II period US Army combat General's uniform grouping.
