You guessed right. Here's some info.

A broadcast by General Eisenhower to the peoples of occupied Europe advises them of the landing in France and says that "although the initial assault may not have been in your own country, the hour of your liberation is approaching." He tells members of resistance groups "to follow the instructions you have received" and asks for "discipline and restraint" until the day when "I shall need your united strength." In an order of the day to his troops he says: "The tide has turned. The free men of the world are marching together to victory. . . . We will accept nothing less than full victory."
