  1. Reichs leader Grand Cross Award given by Hitler to his longtime freind and former boss from WWI Max Amann. it was originally obtained by my grandfather, Major General Robert Alexis McClure when he was on General Eisenhower's SHAEF Staff during WWII. It has been in my father's possession (Colonel Robert Dugald McClure, USMA Class of June '43) since he inherited it following his father's passing, and it is still in my families possession. He told me the reason his father was presented and given it by the SHAEF Staff as a war trophy following the war was because Max Amann was MG R.A. McClure's enemy counterpart on Hitler's Staff. You may want to research both officers. Max Amann was Hitler's Chief of Media and worked closely with Goebbels in the area of media propaganda. You will also find MG. R.A. McClure's significant contributions as Eisenhower's Staff as Director of the Office of Information Control, founder of the US Army 1st Psychological Warfare Division (and in charge of allied media progaganda), and Chief of US/Allied Intelligence (Office of Strategic Services (OSS) later to become the CIA). He has been memorialized as the Founding Father of Army Special Warfare and his accomplishements recognized by both the US Special Operations Command and US Army Special Operations Commands. A brief bio on Max Amann is at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Max_Amann and it is interesting to note he is the one responsible for recommending to Hitler to change the name of his book to Mein Kampf while both were imprisoned together.
