Selection of General Eisenhower as Supreme Commander of Overlord

From the President to Marshal Stalin


The immediate appointment of General Eisenhower to command of Overlord operation has been decided upon.



Cairo, Dec. 7: 43

Dear Eisenhower, I thought you might like to have this as a memento. It was written very hurriedly by me as the final meeting broke up yesterday, the President signing it immediately.


G.E. M.
