The Americans on D-Day-- which will be on sale Online in April -- makes extensive use of smart graphics and veterans' recollections, as well as invaluable assistance from Dale Dye, a retired U.S. Marine captain who founded Warriors Inc., Los Angeles, which specializes in training actors for war-themed film and television productions.

"'The Americans on D-Day" provides an exciting insight into one of the most pivotal events of the 20th century," Dye said. "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," Dye said.

Ellwood von Seibold, battlefield guide of "The Americans on D-Day," donning American and sometimes German uniforms, hops into an early model Army Jeep much like Gen. George Patton rode in, to show viewers what soldiers endured in one of America's bloodiest battles.
