Description: Im Namen des Reichs - Mit Wirkung vom 1. Januar 1934 werden befördert: zum General der Artillerie der Generalleutnant Ritter von Leeb.... (tr. "In the name of the Reich - the following promotions shall take effect from 1 January 1934: Lieutenant General Ritter von Leeb to general of the artillery."). Four typewritten pages size A4, on page 4 "Berlin, den 1. Januar 1934. Der Reichspräsident von Hindenburg - Der Reichswehrminister von Blomberg - Der Chef der Heeresverwaltung Frhr. v. Hammerstein". A total of 39 promotions. Of particular importance is the signature of Colonel General Kurt von Hammerstein (1878 - 1943), the "Red General", who was a member of the military resistance against Hitler and who said to Hitler: (tr.) "Herr Hitler, if you come to power legally, it is all the same to me. If not, I'll shoot." Hitler is quoted to have said in one of his monologues in 1942: "Schleicher's most trusted colleague and commander-in-chief of the army, General von Hammerstein, had told him that under no circumstances would the Reichswehr sanction his acceptance of the chancellorship." Hammerstein is supposed to have planned a military putsch against Hitler on 29 January 1933, the eve of Hitler's seizure of power. After his reactivation in 1939 Hammerstein planned to assassinate Hitler. Important autograph relating to military history and the resistance in the Third Reich. Keith Wilson Collection, Kansas City.
