Radio Londres-- Part 3: D-Day Is Here


Beginning in June 1944, the Allies innundated the radio network with messages.  On June 1 alone,  Radio Londres broadcast 200 messages..

Shortly before D-Day, it broadcast the first stanza of Paul Verlaine's poem "Chanson d'automine" which meant that the invasion was to begin within 24 hours.

Allied victory in Europe meant the end of Radio Londres.
