Wainwright, Jonathan M (1883-1953) General commanding U.S. Army Forces in the Philippine. Forced to surrender in May 1942, he was a prisoner of war for the rest of the war. Medal of Honor winner for his defense of Bataan and Corregidor, which delayed the Japanese takeover. The brutality of the ensuing Bataan Death March is legend. PS ("J M Wainwright General USA") in blue ink, 10" x 8", n.p.n.d. Very fine.
Estimated Value $150 - 200.

Realized $144
