Audio Newscasts From World War II

Aside from their piece of the war, the  last people to know the news was the valiant crew of the George E. Davis, DE-357.  What news they got came from crackly, fading shortwave broadcasts on their radio equipment. Often, by the time something interesting filtered down, it had already been subjected to the ravages of the dreaded scuttlebutt.
     Presented below is a selection of news broadcasts that the shipmates could have heard, as it covers the time span from the beginning of the war in Europe until just about the time they shipped out to the Pacific. While not about the adventures of the DE357, these broadcasts are an interesting window into the run up to the war cruise of the USS George E. Davis. The broadcasts you will hear are all brand new, for you have not heard them before. Unless you save them, you'll never hear them again...
