  • Complete Radio Broadcast for the Invasion of Normandy

    Complete CBS News Radio Broadcast of D-Day

    Came across this CBS radio broadcast archive a little while ago, and I've been listening to it in lieu of modern radio. It is quite a sobering piece of history to listen to. The magnitude of the revelations being told are enormous.

    The amount of people that were undoubtedly glued to their radios while these radio broadcasts were being made, not knowing what fate a loved one or a friend would face over there, included most of the of the world.

    Almost all of the initial broadcasts were from German news agencies about paratrooper drops and enemy (US and British) ships appearing off the coast of Normandy. CBS even decided that they would not interrupt normal programming until they had a less dubious source than the enemy. No Allied person could confirm the story.

    I found it to be a interesting thing to listen to, and thought that I would share it. Hope you guys like it as much as I do.
