1940's GENERAL IRA EAKER PHOTO - Signed


Price per Unit (piece): £85.00


This rare and historical photograph has been been made available from an extensive, private collection.

A wartime photograph of General Ira C. Baker.

Ira Clarence Eaker (April 13, 1896 – August 6, 1987) was a general of the United States Army Air Force during World War Two. Eaker, as second-in-command of the prospective 8th Air Force was sent to England to form and organize its bomber command and was named its commander on December 1, 1942.

Although his background was in single-engine fighter aircraft, Eaker became the architect of a strategic bombing force that ultimately numbered forty groups of 60 heavy bombers each, supported by a subordinate fighter command of 1,500 aircraft, most of which was in place by the time he relinquished command at the start of 1944.

Eaker then took overall command of four Allied air forces based in the Mediterranean Theatre of Operations and by the end of World War Two had been named Deputy Commander of the U.S. Army Air Forces.
