Summary
"The June 6th, 1944 Allied D-Day invasion of Nazi-occupied France was the turning point of World War II, and the most important news event of the radio era. The invasion relieved wall-to-wall coverage, with correspondents from every network in the field and on the spot to keep the American public up to date on every step of the dramatic and historical event. Here are ten hours of radio broadcasts covering the highlights of the first twenty-four hours of that unforgettable event, including General Eisenhower's "Great Crusade" speech, a spellbounding account of the first parachute drop over France, addresses from President Roosevelt and King Georg VI, reporting and commentary by the great reporters of the day, reaction from the homefront, and much more. Includes a program guide by broadcast historian Elizabeth McLeod."--Container
