When War Report was first broadcast from the beaches of Normandy in June 1944, it was a landmark for the BBC and combat reporting alike. Chester Wilmot, Frank Gillard and Wynford Vaughan Thomas landed side by side with the troops in gliders, by parachute and in assault craft to report directly from the front line. Their broadcasts, collected here, provide a dramatic, blow-by-blow account of the closing months of the Second World War, from D-Day to the German surrender.
