"By clicking on the link in the show notes. Before I explain what is happening today in the city of Megan I I need to set the table by explaining what happened back in. September nineteen, forty four. The allies had landed in Normandy back in June and pushing North into Belgium and the Netherlands. The goal was to get to Berlin quickly and try to finish the war by Christmas. To achieve this British Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery hatched a plan known as Operation Market Garden. Market. Garden. Was An audacious plan whereby allied paratroopers would be dropped behind enemy lines to take key bridges and land forces would then rush up behind them to advance and cut off German forces. The airborne component was the market and the ground forces were the garden. If successful, this would have created a one hundred kilometer thrust into the Netherlands which would have created one arm of a pincer, which would then envelope the German industrial heartland. If you want an excellent dramatization of Operation Market Garden I suggest watching the epoch nineteen, seventy, seven movie a bridge too far. They especially have scenes that detail the events I'll be talking about in episode. One of the key bridges which needed to be taken was in the city of nine Megan. As I noted in the introduction nine Megan sits on the wall river, which is a very wide river and very important for transportation. The bridge overnight Megan was one of the longest in Europe at the time. The entire plan involved one road and capturing key bridges along that road. If one of the bridges along the route failed to be taken, the entire operation would fail. I'm not going to go into more detail about operation market garden as it could easily be its own episode suffice to say that taking the bridge and nine Megan was key to success of the entire operation. There was a second railroad bridge in nine Meghan, but this story revolves around the road bridge. In Nine Megan the major concern was that the road bridge was going to be blown up by the Germans if that happened, then the entire operation was dead however, the Germans believed that the bridge needed to be preserved. So it could be part of a future German counterattack. When the I paratroopers were dropped and the attack began on September seventeenth the bridge was intact. The entire operation however went much lower than expected with delays and taking bridges and traffic jams. When the time came to take the bridge and September twentieth the Allies realized they needed to take both sides of the bridge to get to the north side of the bridge. They would need boats and they didn't have any. They eventually found thirty two canvas boats in Belgium, which had to be rushed up tonight Megan for the bridge assault. Only twenty, six of the thirty two boats ended.

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 direction of the attack and he's going to get a shot from the tiny. The master race has fallen down again. Another, other allied correspondent hurt on Columbia this morning James Willard also speaking the pools networks Willard, declared that thousands of allied planes, but then at work all night softening up the invasion coast, said Willard already. Several thousand paratroopers are waiting further inland join forces with the landing parties. These airborne troops were flown in last night. Willard also commented on the amazing quietness of the scene along the Strip of or directly behind the invasion beaches. He declared that with the exception of a German tank, moving up the road toward the beachhead or hiding in hedges. He could see no sign of enemy resistance. As to those allied paratroopers now disrupting German defences behind the front line correspondent, right Brian. Who accompanied them on? Their flight says they met only scattered small arms fire from the fields Brian has been living with a unit of car troopers. For some time. He reports that yesterday afternoon Gen Eisenhower. Passing quietly among the men and chatting with him Brian says the men were trained to the utmost and fully ready for action, and here is his description of what happened in his plane as it flew over France. The. Senior officer on board moved quietly up and down the passenger compartment, speaking to each man and asking if he had everything you needed. As the men settled back into their seats, Colonel Co said there's a doc who's going to give you some pills to guard against air sickness. Make yourselves comfortable as you can, and you better try to sleep a little and then quiet settled over the plane. These men had. Had done. They're talking now. They were grim and silent. Later on correspondent, Brian said I walked down the long passenger cabin to see how the paratroopers were writing more than half of them had taken their colonels advice, and we're dosing with their heads back against the wall, and their feet stretched out in front of them. The others were sitting silently except for two or three who talked among themselves in whispers. And broadcast an hour to go from somewhere on the English coast in it. Another reporter for the Radio Pool Stanley Richardson gave an eyewitness account of a naval action that prepared the way for the landings as far as the naval phase of our activity was concerned, he said not a shot was exchanged with the enemy while I was on the scene for that preliminary. Preliminary phase of the show. At least it was all too incredibly easy. We left our patrol torpedo boat in to accompany the slow, moving light advanced God of ships, which had to pave the way for the actual landings, one of our missions was to protect the allied minesweepers cleared a wide channels straight to the enemy shore for our troops, transports and supply ships. Long lines of ships of every description where discernible on the skyline, literally miles of craft, Ev even columns converging on the area and the channel marked for the concentration points for the actual invasion, huge transports, tank, landing ships, small troop, landing, craft, tankers, and supply vessels of every kind plotted doggedly along under lowering skies in laboring heavy seas. You people at home would have been thrilled with the bone, the cialis American men American ships in American supplies, sailing calmly into the action, for which they had been prepared and trained for so many months. By nightfall we were nearing the French coast, and the watch tightened, but nothing happened even when a full pale moon appearing fitfully from behind the clouds, gave opposition away clearly to any enemy who made been laying in wait for us, and then the fast and heavy combat ships moved up into position all align themselves in the bombardment area too loose, a hail of high explosives to protect the troops moving to the beaches on their landing craft. The worship started laying there smokescreen preparatory to shooting their guns. It was then only and only a few minutes of HR of the long awaited day. And here's a picture on this side of the ocean. The Associated Press put up on the wires at twelve thirty seven am this morning eastern time saying the Germans had announced invasion landings on the French coast and simply the CBS News Room in New York Sprang into action mobilize the full invasion staff, according to plan CBS news analysts Netcom, put the bullet on the air at about twelve, forty, eight, underlining the fact that it was an unconfirmed enemy statement in both the CBS shortwave, listening post and newsroom are specialists began to monitor foreign broadcasts. At frequent intervals, CBS announcers and CBS. Military analysts major feeling Elliott broadcast the continuing German reports, always emphasizing that it was still an enemy report unconfirmed by allied sources, and then at a little after three hundred this morning we switched to s h e AF in London. Where colonel do we read the first official allied communique. One of the most interesting parts of any great story like this invasion is the way people around the world react to the first news. CBS correspondent Charles. Shaw reported from London earlier this morning that he practically was town crier for the city of London, which was largely unaware in the early morning that the invasion had begun shaw road through the London streets, asking people what they thought of the news and found most of them hadn't heard it, but the answer of one girl when she heard the news from Shaw was typical, she said simply Frank God. Far removed from the thankful and hopeful spirit allied capitals is the only reaction so far noted from the Tokyo radio which broadcast it's. I meant that I mentioned the invasion in a German language piece beamed toward Europe. The Jab broadcast said we have just learned with deep concern of landings by the Allies on the coast. Of France we expect they will be quickly annihilated by the courageous German army that from Tokyo. That's the way the Japanese put it. Up to now there's been no mention of the landings to the Japanese people themselves. According to the United States government monitors monitors the office of war, information. Our correspondent William J. Don reported from Australia that invasion reports have the light of way on Australian radio than in the Australian headline, but he added that there is not much external excitement here in our own country reaction from coast to coast was similar. People kept on working overnight shifts and shipyards and other factories, and went to work as usual this morning, but everyone. Everyone seems to be more serious and many stopped in their tasks long enough to offer prayers for the success of the allied effort, perhaps most dramatic of all. It was the ringing of the Liberty Bell and Philadelphia's Independence Hall. The ancient bell was struck six times as Philadelphia's Mayor Bernard. Samuel read the famous inscription proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof. German propagandists asserted today that, despite the invasion of western Europe live, continued normal in Berlin with no excitement, no editions, no special radio segments, but part of these assertions obviously were rather faults from the time of the first landings, a constant stream of broadcasts came from the German transmitters, many of them, carrying more than indication that Hitler's defenses along the western coast had been caught napping. The German press chief was quoted by DNB, saying the allies open the invasion on the order of Moscow. DNB correspondent set of the German people is longing for revenge because of the allied bombings of their cities. The German news agency Transocean content an early broadcasts that it was not certain of allied intentions, but at one PM at said this much has become clear by midday. These allied landings mean this is the great invasion and no fooling. That's the story from Germany. Ladies and Gentlemen Columbia. Will Continue Its invasion coverage, and approximately thirty seconds from now we're pausing. Those timeless is Douglass Edwards, speaking and CBS the Columbia Broadcasting System.
