The reporters who escaped the Italian stalemate in Italy invariably headed to London, where preparations were gathering pace for D-Day, the invasion of France. Eisenhower, pressured by British officials to keep reporters at arm’s length, continued with his policy of treating them as “quasi-staff officers.” His subordinates used all the experience gleaned over the past two years to try to ensure that the communication system and the censors would be able to cope with the biggest operation to date. But nothing could counteract the growing sense of tension, as Pyle, Stoneman, Whitehead, Capa, and countless other correspondents prepared for the big day.

Keywords:   D-Day, Ernie Pyle, Dwight Eisenhower, media-military relations, censorship, Bill Stoneman, Don Whitehead, John Thompson, Robert Capa
