[USPRwire, Fri Feb 27 2009] “I grew up in the early 1950’s, and I have always been fascinated by the second World War,” said Ellwood von Seibold, battlefield guide of Americans on D-Day S, the first battlefield tour film of WW2-Reflections, a division of Labyrinth Media & Publishing Ltd. of Dublin, Ireland. Labyrinth specializes in WW2 battlefield tour DVDs for the U.S. market. "The Americans on D-Day" coincides with the 65th anniversary of D-Day and the Normandy invasion.
“D-Day became a focus point of my interest, and I decided to live a dream and move to France and take people all around these areas,” explained Seibold. “And the producer and director of WW2-Reflections said ‘why don’t we put one of your tours on film in Normandy.”
Seibold noted that WW2-Reflections had assembled a remarkable and accurate collection of soldier’s testimony, stories and witnesses who survived one of America’s most bloody battles in war history. Siebold, donning American and sometimes German uniforms, hops into an early model Army Jeep much like General George Patton rode in as he walks you visually shows and tells you what brave solider endured.
The film uses smart graphics and extensive use of veterans' recollections, as well as invaluable assistance from Dale Dye, a retired U.S. Marine captain who founded Warriors, Inc. – which specializes in training actors for war-themed film and television productions. Dye was in France researching an upcoming film project and worked with Siebold on historical accuracy. "We are thrilled that he has supported this tour film," Producer Richard Lanni said.
"The Americans On D-Day provides an exciting insight into one of the most pivotal events of the 20th century,” said Captain Dye. “I'm really proud to have a hand in this effort to provide a foxhole-level view of what happened in Normandy on June 6, 1944."
"I've seen a lot of tour videos that purport to give viewers an insight into what gallant Americans endured and accomplished on D-Day, but this one really hits the mark. The Americans On D-Day provides a stirring, GI-level look at one of the most momentous battles of World War II," explained Dye.
