WWII veterans reflect on D-Day anniversary

Some historians consider it the single most important day in the 20th century: D-Day. On June 6, 1944, 150,000 Allied forces stormed the beaches of Normandy, France, and began to turn the tide in World War II, leading to the eventual defeat of Nazi Germany.

President Trump is in Europe to take part in commemorations of the 75th anniversary of D-Day. On Thursday, Anthony Mason will lead CBS News' live coverage of events marking that historic day. Here are details on how to watch highlights over the next two days.

Eisenhower and Cronkite visited the Allies' war room on England's southern coast; the coast of France, including Pointe du Hoc and Omaha Beach; and the American military cemetery at St. Laurent-on-the-Sea.

This special broadcast of "CBS Reports," featuring newsreel footage of the invasion, originally aired in 19 countries around the world on June 5, 1964.
