Let the CBS the Columbia Broadcasting System. It's up to the minute coverage of the invasion of western. Europe. CBS World now brings the latest news development followed by reports by its correspondents at home and abroad. I for the latest news dispatches here is John Daly. Here is what we know officially about the progress of the invasion of Europe at this moment, the second communique from Supreme Allied Headquarters issued early this evening, eastern wartime told us that our forces succeeded in their initial landings, and that fighting continues. Our landings were affected undercover of a heavy air and naval bombardment. We know officially that our naval casualties were light, much lighter than expected rather than Roosevelt, told his radio best conference after noon today, eastern wartime United States naval losses where to destroy US and one landing ship for tanks. To rear admirals of the United States Navy would have bought cruises which took part in the naval bombardment, which preceded the landings Rear Admiral Alan Goodrich, Kirk, commander, of one of the Task Forces Watch the operations from his flagship the cruiser. And Rear Admiral Morton L. Deo was in command of the cruiser Tuscaloosa in American, battleship Nevada pace. The thousand allied ships that made up the striking ARMATA. We know officially to modern. The thousand troop-carrying planes and gliders dropped allied paratroopers and other airborne troops behind the German lines in France. The airborne phase of the operation met with what the Allied High Command described as unexpected success and prime minister Churchill told the House of Commons earlier in the day, but I'll parachute. Troops seized the number of vital bridges before the Germans had time to blow them up. Churchill gave the only official allied indication of just where our troops landed, and how father have advanced. He announced that allied invasion spearhead penetrated the railroad town of Khan nine and a half miles inland, but reports from the German indicate tonight that forces pushed inland from seven and a half to ten miles at key points along a sixty mile front, and the radio said where thirteen miles inland one point north of come. While the official reports are happening, but meagre in detail we do know from the request correspondence and allied pilots who flew over the battle area. That I'll progress appears to be good in every area. We know too that there's no German counterattacks up to this time. Although such attacks are expected momentarily at eight PM Eastern wartime the German controlled Peres radio that an important American naval. Squadron was cruising off Chevron. CBS correspondent child culling would reports that we have already taken some German prisoners. He saw them line up at the end of one of our beachheads. At the same time, the first wounded men from the invasion front have landed back in England and about them. We have this report. Despite their wounds, many were cheerful and smiling. To round out the unofficial reports in the invasion, the London Daily Mail seven dispatch from Stockholm, but Adolf Hitler is expected to make a speech soon from somewhere in the west, where he said to be personal command of the Anti invasion operation, and that's the best news we've had today considering his record debate as commander of the German forces in the field. Now a picture of American fighting men, and how they react in battle by one who has seen them in action. Here is Colombia's war quarter when Reynolds. I know nothing about the mass strategy of war, and it would be presumptuous for me to try to guess what will happen tomorrow or the next day, and I have no idea tall to the final outcome of this most daring all military operation. But I do know Gi Joe. I saw him in action in Sicily and Salerno and I know his reactions. I, know his hopes and his fears. I know that he has been looking forward eagerly to this test. Just as he wants, looked forward to playing and a big high school football game. All. He was a bit nervous about it, but he knew that once it began. His nervousness would leave. It was tough. The Gi Joe Crossing the channel last night. Because, he knew they were enemy minefield that had to be crossed. Then, sitting there on the deck of a ship. Had nothing to do. Nothing to do but think. It was a chaplain. Every lodge ship in the invasion Amada. Chaplain was running during the Sicilian invasion during the Solano operation at Anzio. The G. Gi Joe doesn't want. Any sermons preached to him just. Before we goes into battle. He wants a pat on the back. Sometimes he wants to talk. To unburden himself. That's what Gi Joe did last night. That's got talking with the Padre. And it didn't matter much. What faith the Padre belong to? All chaplains wear the same uniform. And there was only one God at the front. and. The invasion fleet mid the enemy code. Now Gi Joe tightened up. Examined as M, three submachine gun Catholic took it apart, but it together thing it is clips Savannah Munition. He kept telling himself that he wasn't afraid. Telstar once said and Warren piece. Every. Soldier is afraid that he will be week at the decisive moment. Telstar was right. G. I O. G. I joe felt that way. Well. They got near the enemy coast. Nervousness increased. Maybe, he lit a cigarette, then tossed into the deck when an office called sharply, but that out. And, then it was h our. It was tumbling over the side into a waiting LCI. Himself because there was a slight swell, and he grin weekly at his pals indistinct in the same dog. They all spelled as he did. was like that high school just before the kick-off. then. The boat started tug Shar. Wasn't much opposition as I went to show. The boat grounded a few feet from the beach and Gi Joe out keeping his gun high over his head. Adjusting steel helmet. The German, modern machine gunfire opened up. He! Had the bullets whistling past and he ducked instinctively. And he laughed sheepishly. There are no foxhole meaningless channel. He surged fall within the Cold Water Abrasive. Many hit land. Sappers attached to his company dashed ahead to be sure that we're. No mind. Now suddenly, the nervousness left G. Joe. He looked cooley ahead. And when he saw flash, the automatically lifted as Tommy got an sprayed clip of bullets. Now, his long training tone. He did things the right things instinctively. Avoid booby traps and.

Admiral James Stavridis The Voyage of Character

"We're honored to have our guest today. US Navy Admiral James Stavridis he's the former Supreme Allied Command under obviously US Navy Admiral is currently operating executive at the Carlisle Group. Admiral Stavridis thank you so much for being with us what a pleasure to be in Texas with you and our Co host today is once again the Colonel Matt Amazon who's Director of the Military Service Initiative here at the Bush Center Matt thanks for doing this again Andrew thanks for being here Admiral thank you for bringing the cool weather Dallas yeah one hundred degrees pretty much the got here now it's beautiful exactly end last night I was greeted with the fire works for the biggest lightning storms have seen which delayed my flight for almost five hours so never let it be said that I didn't fight my way through thunder in lightning to get to the Bush Center. Well we can't thank you enough we know you're busy and we we're thrilled to have you here so we wanted to start with something a little and we heard that you are a lover of Fountain pens and old maps is that is that true it is and I think it's interesting too speculate on why those two interests emerge it's going to be the next question okay fine so a one is I loved right I've written now nine books my new book sailing true North comes out next week and I am also someone who loves reading and anything that touches Writers is is important so yeah I have four hundred fountain pens believe it or not wow yeah it's it's a gentle madness and some of them are a little on the pricey side but some of them I find in flea markets antiquarian stores I can restore pens nice kind of hobby and when I pick up a fountain pen and I think that it's from the nineteen twenty s or nineteen thirties and I think of all the writers who have had l. debt pen and what they wrote and I kind of ruminate on all that so yes I love fountain pens I think maps are probably more obvious because of spending so much my life at sea and if if you really look at a map of the world of course seventy percent is water and I spent nine a half years on the deep ocean if you add it all up day for day out of sight of land so for me maps in that to quote Tennyson that untravelled world whose margin fades forever forever when you move has always intrigued me so I have maps the earliest I have in my collection is from the very early fifteen hundreds it's a map of Marco Polo's travels Oh wow and I also have maps and charts for your listeners the difference between a map and a chart is map is land chart is the see I have both maps and charts and I have many of the short what's that I use to navigate on over my years at sea from the Persian Gulf from the Mediterranean from the Caribbean With a pencil line sketchy on them and I also have a lot of maps from Afghanistan from my time as supreme allied commander in NATO every time I would go there the staff would prepare a very detailed map of where we were going and I would mark that up as we went around I have a map of the of Libya from the Libyan campaign in two thousand eleven showing many of the strikes we conducted so it's an interesting collection might pens in my maps I'll conclude however by saying that your research missed that being I collect the most man and it's books I have five thousand books which much to my beautiful wife Laura's uttered may who's sitting here with us indeed a military family where you move every two to three years so you are unpacking packing and boxing and shelving five five thousand books I got some work to do there Sir I'd love to hear your thoughts on when you say maps and charts and you were provided maps Afghanistan and things like that but sometimes the the difference between what a map in front of you displays in the actual ground truth an example being I think in in Jordan they call the northeastern portion that border Winston's hiccup when he was drawing the border so your observations over time of how maps can be represent unitive of ground truth or otherwise specifically in Afghanistan as well I think generally it is otherwise a map is so sterile in the end it can't can vader you events on the ground and I'll give you a very practical example these days I do a lot of talks where I speak about variety of international subjects and when I talk about his Ukraine and I'll start by showing a map of Ukraine and you know it's a kind of an interesting country it's on the Black Sea of course there's this dangling chunk of it hangs down like a like a pouch of rice that is Crimea and you can look at that and think man okay it's a little peninsula that juts into the Black Sea you cannot imagine the war's over two millennia the fighting over Crimea the negotiation of the treaty there you mentioned Winston Churchill a moment ago the end of the Second World War effectively conducted there in the palace it's it can't convey anything so what I will do for an audience is I'll show a map of Ukraine and Crimea and I'll say here's Ukraine it was invaded by Russia Crimea was annexed by Russia and I'll say but let me show you what Ukraine looks like today click and the next slide is a quad of combat it's destroyed buildings its artillery piece is it's it's four brutal photographs and I'll say to the audience that's what Crimea looks like that's what Ukraine looks like it's a war fifteen thousand people Villeda died there so to your point leaders statesmen diplomats military officers must refrain from allowing the sterility of a map and the simple act of gliding your pencil across it to think that you've solved the problem because you had I've not so admiral I want to start by talking about your book which Time magazine recently named a must read for October sailing true north ten admirals and the voyage of character I meant when I when I sat down to read it I wasn't expecting to have a book that I was going to personally be able to you take the lessons from and apply them to my career I thought it'd be learning about learning some history and learning about the the voyage of the fares and this is actually thing that I can apply to in my daily life did you know that was going to be the end result when you sat down to write the book I certainly hoped it would and the guide post in my mind was an ancient book plutarch's lives which is written by Roman about leading figures in Roman society and he hoped that by doing that he would illuminate lessons of character which readers could apply to their own lives I think at minimum level of entry it is a book of history you meet these ten interesting historical admirals going back two thousand years each one is a chapter but as you know having having read the book the power of it is seen how they confronted the inner challenges so you know we are awash in books of leadership leadership is the influence we exert over others character uh is how we lead ourselves that inner voyage which I would argue as vastly more difficult than the simple act motivating groups people in the idea of the book is to have some case studies that readers can say you know I face that kind of challenge in how did that seafaring admiral respond to it and then draw some lessons and they're both good and bad lessons in the
