First Report of D-Day Invasion

First Report of D-Day Invasion

In the overnight hours of June 6, 1944, Americans who were awake and listening to their radios got the first word that the D-Day invasion that turned the tide of World War II and took so many American, Canadian, British and other Allied lives, had begun. Note how the great newsman Bob Trout on CBS Radio was careful to say these were unsubstantiated reports from German radio - The U.S. had not yet confirmed the invasion. A different time for news, indeed.
