General Dwight D. Eisenhower did not announce the Allied landings on the coast of France until 3:30 a.m on June 6, 1944. As the last edition of the day, this 6:00 a.m. extra edition of The New York Times carried the most complete D-Day coverage of any morning newspaper world-wide, replete with text and detailed maps of the Normandy. In addition to Raymond Daniel's lead story, the front page includes NBC's Wright Bryan's coverage from a U.S. Ninth Air Force plane, providing one of the first eyewitness accounts of the airborne invasion.
