This catalog contains some of the most historically important items from WW II that has ever come onto the market anywhere- worldwide. Yamashita's presentation sword signed not only by the sword maker who made it, but also with a patriotic engraved presentation from the very Emperor of Japan urging him to destroy MacArthur's Allied Forces in the Pacific/Philippines. And Sherman Tanks that won the war, these 1st Model Sherman's are irreplaceable in this kind of original condition with painted tank division markings, they have been spared by time untouched and unrestored as a testament to their decisive factor during the war. And D- Day - nothing can compare in rarity and historical importance to the Sherman Duplex Propeller Driven Tank excavated from the bottom of the ocean off Omaha Beach in Normandy, France. Sunk during the most important invasion in mankind's history on D-Day June 6th, 1944 it is truly a historical time capsule of the bravery and a testament to the risk Eisenhower was willing to risk taking Europe back from Hitler. A 30-ton tank in Open Ocean with propellers and an inflatable raft in the 1st amphibious tank assault in history, risky indeed and this tank is one of the 27 that did not make it, only 2 were able to float ashore on Omaha Beach and attack the enemy. A gamble but D - Day was a gamble unto itself, of all the relic's of D - Day and Military History this Tank and it's excavated relics are not only unique but document a moment when brave men made dramatic decisions in order to win the War and Free Europe!
