Remembering D-Day: Pathé & Daily Telegraph newsreels

We invite you to explore our "Spotlight" feature of curated books, DVDs, and music relating to this  monumental event in U.S. and world history.
Below you can view vintage British Pathé newsreel coverage of the landings (from their series "A Day that Shook the World").
The Daily Telegraph's coverage below features a report from the newspaper's special correspondent Cornelius Ryan, who flew from a U.S. Air Force base close by to catch a glimpse of the action.
