The Complete 24 hour radio broadcast of D-Day

This is the full 24 hour broadcast from CBS world news from June 6th, 1944, otherwise known as D-Day.  Anyone interested in WW2 history will find this broadcast completely fascinating.  Listen to the radio as the events unfolded that day and take yourself back in history as the US took control of WW2.

The Normandy landings (codenamed Operation Neptune) were the landing operations on Tuesday, June 6th, 1944 (termed D-Day) of the Allied invasion of Normandy in Operation Overlord during World War II. The largest seaborne invasion in history, the operation began the liberation of German-occupied northwestern Europe from Nazi control, and contributed to the Allied victory on the Western Front.

Planning for the operation began in 1943. In the months leading up to the invasion, the Allies conducted a substantial military deception, codenamed Operation Bodyguard, to mislead the Germans as to the date and location of the main Allied landings. The weather on D-Day was far from ideal, but postponing would have meant a delay of at least two weeks, as the invasion planners had requirements for the phase of the moon, the tides, and the time of day that meant only a few days in each month were deemed suitable. Adolf Hitler placed German Field Marshal Erwin Rommel in command of German forces and of developing fortifications along the Atlantic Wall in anticipation of an Allied invasion.

This collection is all in MP3 format supplied on CD.  You play this in your computer and then can copy all the MP3 files to your MP3 player of choice.
