‘Give it to them, boys!’ — Stunning audio captures the chaos of D-Day as you’ve never heard it before | Task and Purpose

George Hicks, the radio correspondent during the events of D-Day, caught 13 minutes of audio on a Recordgraph tape recording system of the largest amphibious landing in war history. While the recording has largely been regarded as one of the most iconic relics from WWII, the original audio has never been heard until now. Bruce Campbell from Florida discovered the tape and personally delivered it to the National D-Day Memorial on September 30th. Those who have heard it so far have said how surreal and overwhelming it is to listen to the raw recording of such an important event. At one point, Hicks himself is in awe of what is happening by saying, “I’ll just take a deep breath for a moment and stop speaking.”
