Summary
  • NBC D-Day report by Robert St. John: They are fighting for islands large enough as landing fields. There is an absence of the Luftwaffe. The allied bombers have seen little resistance. General Dwight W. Eisenhower, Supreme Commander of the Allied Operation, addressed the people of Europe and the allied troops with messages of hope after the invasion began. He stayed on the British side of the channel as the invasion began. The location of the headquarters of the Allied Expeditionary Force is secret and camouflaged. General John J. Pershing, the Supreme Commander of the last war, was in his hospital room in Washington, D.C., when the invasion began. General Bernard L. Montgomery is the Combat Commander of the British Commander. Most Londoners took the news of the invasion calmly. President Roosevelt wrote a prayer for victory for the allied forces of invasion. Bulletin: a battle is in progress in the English Channel north of Le Havre between German naval units and allied air forces trying to land. Readings of German news reports. Tip-Top Bread advertisement jingle. Wright Bryan, the NBC war correspondent from WSB in Atlanta, traveled in a C-47, the Snooty, with paratroops an hour before the invasion in northern France and then reported from London. The United States 9th Air forces troop carrier command was only met with scattered small arms fire. The troop carrier squadron Wright Bryan had been living with was lead by Major Clement G. Richardson of Salinas, California. Bryan gives a detailed report of the living conditions of the carrier squadron and their operations before the invasion. Lieutenant Colonel Donaldson of Birmingham, Alabama, was the leader of the paratroopers who would lead the invasion in the morning. Lieutenant Colonel David Daniel, Birmingham, Alabama, was the commander of the first squadron to leave England for the invasion. Lieutenant General Lewis H. Brereton, 9th Air Force Commander, moved among the planes as they took off. Lieutenant Colonel Robert Cole of San Antonio, Texas, commanded the plane that carried Wright Bryan along with other paratroopers. Pills were passed out to guard against air sickness. Private Robert C. Hillman of Manchester, Connecticut comments about his mother's role in the war effort. Lieutenant Colonel John E. Peters of Chicago, Illinois, 9th Air Force Commander, is the pilot of the Snooty and Lieutenant B.E. Maxwell of Clay, Michigan, was the co-pilot. Robert E. Taylor of Altoona, Pennsylvania, was the navigator. Staff Sergeant Richard A. Eberly of Indianapolis, Indiana, was the crew chief
  • King George VI's speech to his subjects on the Allies' invasion of Europe. He implores the people to engage in prayer. He implores God to give strength and peace to the people. An unannounced orchestra plays, "God Save the King."
  • Mutual D-Day analysis by Paul Schubert. Some questions before the invasion began about whether this invasion was a feint or the actual invasion. This was the largest triphibious landing ever attempted. German coastal defenses were overwhelmed. The invasion was successful and caused progress. Two beachheads have been begun: Port of Cherbourg and Port of Le Havre. Allies have landed on at least a dozen sites on the coast of France and on the Channel Islands. Paratroopers and airborne troops have captured the enemy air drones and the city of Caen. The goal was not to get deep into France, but to land thousands of troops. There were small losses. Weather delayed the invasion by 24 hours. Next goal is to land tons of supplies. The correspondent predicts deliberate rather than hasty moves by the Germans. The ultimate goal is the Seine River, Seine Valley, and eventually Paris. The invasion was met with excitement and caution from American citizens. This is only the beginning.
