June 6, 1944 - The Indelible Day

News of the day for June 6, 1944. Invasion of France by Allied armies on this day sixty-seven years ago.

<strong>June 6, 1944</strong>


No matter what else has gone on in the world since that particular June 6th, the one in 1944 is always front and center in most people's minds. And as the years go on and the people involved in that day become fewer and fewer, it is always there whether it's newsreels or photos or radio broadcasts to remind people, many of whom have had no connection to that event whatsoever, what a momentous day it was in history.

So in keeping with that, here is a half-hour slice of the day, from 11:15-11:30 pm (EWT) from NBC Radio. The day where all activity stopped, and news was nothing but the events going on in the English Channel.
