"The Allied invasion of Europe began today between midnight and 2.25am our time." So begins this gripping blow-by-blow account of the D-Day invasion, the only one of its kind currently known to exist in its entirety. Comprising 92 feet of rolling news bulletins, this Dow Jones ticker tape news printout details the action as it unfolded on one of the most historic days in world history. As most ticker tape was discarded once it had been read, the survival of this complete run of Dow Jones ticker tape is truly extraordinary.

After the invasion the “tape” was bound into its own book and thus it is not only complete, it is also in excellent original condition.

The printout spans the complete day of June 6, 1944, starting at 8AM and ending "New York Tuesday June 6th 4 35pm Good Night." In between is printed the continual transmission of news bulletins accumulated by Dow Jones from every source and report available to them, including German and Japanese sources, which they sent on unaltered and unbiased over the wire to their subscribers. A constant stream of updates were filed as nearly 160,000 Allied soldiers stormed the beaches of Normandy at dawn on June 6. The events that unfolded on that fateful day ultimately led to the overthrow of the Nazi regime and the Allied victory of World War II.
