If you only read the headlines a lot of them seem like the "bad" guys invaded rather than an ally.

I don't think i've ever seen a red headline before--weird. Cool site.

A great collection, but it would be nice if they'd let you look at the entire front page at once.

riffola: many of the newspapers are German... and um, we were the bad guys... :-)

CBC has done the Newseum one better by showing what their home page looked like on June 6, 1944.

That CBC page is... weird. Great link, Steve.

Bad web designers! If you want to use a popup, give it a real href too.

It is kind of cool that you can zoom in and read all the text. I wish the "paper window" was bigger though. Not everyone has 640x480 anymore.

Awesome link. Thanks. I would agree with the previous comment about the size of the "paper window."
