    Biographical Information on Lieutenant General Thomas W. Herren

    Comments from the Curator:

    World War II period combat General's groupings are extremely rare to find today, especially for one identified as a rare Cavalryman. This uniform is one of two different uniforms in the AAF Tank Museum collection that belonged to General Herren. It is the only one that will ever be for sale. Provenance is direct from Herren's estate auction from his decendents. The fact that there are only a handful of World War II "Task Force" Commanding Generals reflects in it's tru rarity.

    Priced reasonably for it's great rarity
