42 Haines, Ralph E., Jr. (1913-2011). United States Army four star general who served as the last Commanding General, U.S. Continental Army Command from 1970 to 1973. TYPED LETTER ON THE SUBJECT OF WORLD PEACE SIGNED BY AMERICAN FOUR STAR GENERAL RALPH E. HAINES, JR.
February 5, 1973. 1973. Fine Signed
February 5, 1973.. 1973.. Fine. - Typed 2-page letter filling 1 side of a sheet of cream-colored, 8-1/2 inch high by 7 inch wide letterhead with a vignette of a flag in red & gilt at the top, and 1 side of a follow-up sheet. Signed "Ralph E. Haines, Jr," above his typed name and title "General, United States Army, Ret." There are 2 tiny marks & a small area of light soiling at top left of the first sheet. Near fine.

Haines writes to Congressman Seymour Halpern who has sought his views on the best way to achieve world peace. Haines apologizes for the delay in answering caused by activities related to his retirement. He retired from the army on January 31st, 1973, five days before the date of this letter.

Haines writes a long and thoughtful letter, quoting from the Bible and telling a charming anecdote about a girl requesting help with her homework from her dad. He confronts the apparent contradiction posed by his belief that world peace is the most desirable condition for the welfare of mankind: "My career of service as a soldier bespeaks a less than complete conviction in the ability of men to resolve their differences and reconcile their ambitions without resorting to arms". He concludes that only a national effort "to turn anew toward the goal of becoming 'one Nation under God'" will result in "an outpouring of God's blessings that could include peace..."

Ralph Edward Haines, Jr. [1913-2011] was a U.S. Army four star general who served as Vice Chief of Staff of the Army [1967-1968]; Commander, U.S. Army, Pacific [1968-1970] and Commanding General, U.S. Continental Army Command [1970-1973]. He was the last commander of the Continental Army. At his death he was the Army's oldest living four star general and its senior retired officer. First Edition.

49 Koenig, Marie-Pierre (1898-1970). French army General and politician. He commanded a Free French Brigade at the WWII Battle of Bir Hakeim. Rassemblement du Peuple Francais: ASSISES NATIONALES DE NANCY: RAPPORT SUR LA DEFENSE NATIONAL / par le General Koenig / President de la Commission de Defense Nationale a l'Assemblee Nationale / Depute du Bas-Rhin. 23-24-25 Novembre 1951.
Nancy: Societe d'Impressions Typographiques, (1951). (1951). Very good Signed
Nancy: Societe d'Impressions Typographiques, (1951).. (1951).. Very good. SIGNED BY GENERAL KOENIG - Octavo, 8-1/4 inches high by 5-3/8 inches wide. Printed stapled paper wraps. 16 pages, including the covers. There is a horizontal crease through the center of the pamphlet, likely from having been folded and 2 small remnants of mounting tape on the blank rear cover.

Boldly signed in ink by General Koenig on the front cover.

General Koenig gives a report in favor of furthering the development, reorganization and funding of the French armed forces. Briefly touching on France's role in Indochina & North Africa, he argues against the dependence on a "European" armed force and concludes with the argument that, while Germany seeks to reclaim equality of rights within the European continent, it should not be allowed to rebuild its armed forces as others, namely some in the U.S., have argued in context of the Cold War.

The French Army General and politician Marie-Pierre Koenig (1898- 1970) commanded a Free French Brigade at the Battle of Bir Hakeim in North Africa in 1942 and commanded the Free French that participated in the Normandy invasion in 1944. Born in Caen, Koenig distinguished himself in the First World War and subsequently served in Morocco and Cameroon until the start of the Second World War. He was first assigned as a captain with the French troops in Norway, for which service he was awarded the Norwegian Krigskorset med Swerd medal in 1942. He fled to London following France's fall to German forces where he became chief of staff in the first divisions of the Free French Forces and was soon involved in the campaigns in Syria and Lebanon. Promoted to General, he was assigned command of the First French Brigade in Egypt where he and his small unit of 3,700 men held off 5 full Axis divisions for 16 days at the Battle of Bir Hakeim in 1942. He served under General Dwight D. Eisenhower as a Free French delegate to the Allied headquarters and was given command of the Free French forces who participated in the Invasion of Normandy in 1944. Given command of the French Forces he unified the French Resistance groups in support of the advancing Allied troops, encouraging sabotage efforts instead of pitched battles. De Gaulle appointed him military governor of Paris in 1944, charging him with restoring law and order. In 1945, he was assigned to arrest Marshal Petain. After the war he held several commands and, following his retirement in 1951, Koenig was elected as Gaullist representative to the French National Assembly, briefly serving as minister of defence. Having witnessed the heroism of a battalion from the Jewish Brigade who were charged with laying mines during the 1942 Battle of Bir Hakeim, Koenig broke the rules and allowed them to fly their own Star-of-David flag. After the war, as president of the Franco-Israeli Committee, he supported the new state of Israel.

The U.S. Congress honored Koenig wih the Congressional Gold Medal, the U.K. with the Distinguished Service Order, and France with the Croix de Guerre.

57 O'Connor, Raymond G VICTORY IN MODERN WAR
(Journal of Peace Research), [Dec. 1969). 1969). Very good Signed
(Journal of Peace Research), [Dec. 1969).. 1969).. Very good. INSCRIBED BY THE AUTHOR TO ADMIRAL "CHICK" HAYWARD - Octavo, stapled leaves removed by the author from the December 1969 issue of the Journal of Peace Research. 18 pages, numbered [367]-384. Very good.

What is offered here is the author's essay on "Victory in Modern War" removed by him from the Dec. 1969 issue of the Journal of Peace Research. Inscribed and signed in full by the author to Admiral "Chick" Hayward at the top of the first page.

"O'Connor attempts fhree main things here: (1) a discussion of the variety of meanings attributed to the term 'victory'; (2) a survey of how various war endings from the American Revolution to contemporary wars of national liberation measure up to these conceptions of victory....; and (3) a discussion of various factors influencing the outcome of warfare today...." - - Excerpted from the introduction.

John T. "Chick" Hayward. Vice Admiral, United States Navy. A batboy for the New York Yankees baseball team, he started his military career on rocky footing, joining the navy at 15 years old by lying about his age. This after having been expelled from military school for disciplinary reasons. Yet he went on to be promoted to vice admiral in 1959. A navy pilot during World War II, he fought in the Solomon Islands and New Guinea campaigns, his squadron being responsible for numerous kills. He achieved the most flight hours ever attained by a flag officer (13,200 hours). He joined the Manhattan Project in 1944, helping develop the implosion components of the plutonium bomb, and after the war went to Japan to study the after effects on Nagasaki and Hiroshima. He was in charge of the first attempt to photograph a nuclear explosion on the Bikini atoll in 1946. He went on to command the first nuclear-powered task force in history, leading the aircraft carrier Enterprise. He served as president of the Naval War College in Newport, Rhode island, and after retiring from the military worked for General Dynamics as vice president for international programs. Vice Admiral Hayward was also responsible for the development of guidance systems for rockets and underwater anti-submarine weapons.

AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED BY BRITISH CAVALRY COMMANDER HENRY PAGET, 1ST MARQUESS OF ANGELSEY., Paget, Henry, 1st Marquess of Anglesey. (1768-1854). British army officer and politician. Cavalry officer in the Peninsula War and at Waterloo.
58 Paget, Henry, 1st Marquess of Anglesey. (1768-1854). British army officer and politician. Cavalry officer in the Peninsula War and at Waterloo. AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED BY BRITISH CAVALRY COMMANDER HENRY PAGET, 1ST MARQUESS OF ANGELSEY.
February 6th, 1847. 1847. Very good Signed
February 6th, 1847.. 1847.. Very good. - Letter penned in black ink & filling almost 3 sides of a sheet of light gray paper folded once to form 4 sides approximately 7-1/4 inches high by 4-5/8 inches wide. The letter has been mounted on a lightly larger sheet of cream-colored stiff paper. Signed "Anglesey" There are a few small ink smudges to the 2nd & 3rd sides. Very good.

The letter is addressed to Scottish geologist Sir Roderick Murchison and concerns a publication which Murchison is proposing and how it would be funded. "Some Estimate of the probable cost of money and of time is called for from General Colby, and when it is received you shall again hear from me." The reference is probably to General Thomas Frederic Colby, a leading geographer who had been director of the Ordnance Survey.

Henry Paget, 1st Marquess of Anglesey [1768-1854] was a British army officer and politician. After serving as Member of Parliament for Carnarvon and then for Milborne Port, he took part in the Flanders Campaign. During the Peninsula War he commanded the cavalry for Sir John Moore's army in Spain and at the Battle of Sahagun virtually destroyed a regiment of French cavalry. He led the charge of the heavy cavalry against Comte d'Erlon's column at the Battle of Waterloo, losing part of one of his legs to a cannonball at the end of the battle. In later life he served as Master-General of Ordnance from 1846 to 1852.

The Scottish geologist Sir Roderick [sometimes, as here, spelled "Rhoderick"] Impey Murchison, 1st Baronet (1792-1871) was the first to describe and investigate the Silurian system. During the last decade of his life he chiefly investigated the Highlands of Scotland. Murchison was one of the founders and a president of the Royal Geographical Society and served on the Royal Commission on the British Museum. In 1855, he was appointed director-general of the British Geological Survey and director of the Royal School of Mines and the Museum of Practical Geology in Jermyn Street, London. First Edition.

59 Palmer, Bruce, Jr. (1913 -2000). Noted United States Army General who served as Commander in Chief, United States Readiness Command (1973-74). TYPED LETTER ON THE SUBJECT OF WORLD PEACE SIGNED BY U.S. ARMY GENERAL AND COMMANDER IN CHIEF, UNITED STATES READINESS COMMAND, BRUCE PALMER, JR.
MacDill Air Force Base, FL: February 12, 1973. 1973. Very good Signed
MacDill Air Force Base, FL: February 12, 1973.. 1973.. Very good. - Palmer's lengthy 2-1/2 page letter is typed on a cream-colored, 10-1/2 inch high by 8 inch wide sheet of United States Readiness Command letterhead with the address & the Department of Defense seal printed at the top, and on 2 follow-up sheets. Printed at the foot of the letterhead are the words "Readiness....Key to Peace". Signed "Bruce Palmer Jr". The sheets are lightly bumped & stapled together at top right. Folded twice for mailing. Very good.

Palmer replies to a letter from Congressman Seymour Halpern asking him for his thoughts on how to achieve a lasting world peace. Palmer writes a long and thoughtful letter, giving his views on the subject and considering the problems and challenges ahead. "The means of achieving this goal are several. First and foremost is to maintain strength and stability in our own domestic economy and political system. Secondly, in the realization that we cannot go it alone-- economically, politically or militarily--is the need for collective security, enhancing our own security through collective arrangements with other nations. Our moral, economic, political and military strength and leadership have played the key role in the collective security of the Free World for more than twenty-five years...."

Bruce Palmer, Jr. [1913-2000] served in the United States Army from 1936 to 1974. From 1967-68, he was commander of II Field Force, Vietnam and deputy commander of the United States Army, Vietnam. He was acting Chief of Staff of the United States Army from July to October 1972 and from 1973 until his retirement he was commander in chief of the United States Readiness Command.

The Queens, New York Republican Congressman Seymour Halpern (1913-1997) started his political career as a campaign aide to New York's powerful mayor Fiorella La Guardia and first served in New York's State Senate for 14 years before seeking a seat in the U.S. Congress. In Albany Halpern sponsored 279 bills that became law, including measures on schools, housing, civil rights, nutrition and mental health. A Liberal, he was something of an anomaly as the lone Republican representative from New York City, and generally garnered support from Labor Unions and endorsement from the Liberal Party. Yet he never even considered switching parties as he considered membership in the Republican Party a family tradition and commitment. While he found ample time for his private pursuits, including painting and collecting autographs, he took his legislative duties very seriously. Of these, he was proudest of his co-sponsorship of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and of the original 1965 Medicare legislation.
