Walter Cronkite Remembers the North Africa Campaign

Commentator and former CBS-TV anchor Walter Cronkite tells of his firsthand experience on this date 60 years ago as American forces landed in North Africa to fight Germany during the Second World War. He was a wire service reporter on a Navy vessel at the time. We hear CBS broadcasts by John Daly from the time.
