Executive produced by Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg, and Gary Goetzman, The Pacific is an epic ten-part miniseries. The Pacific tracks the intertwined real-life stories of three U.S. Marines – Robert Leckie, John Basilone, and Eugene Sledge – across the vast canvas of the Pacific Theater during World War II. The miniseries follows these men and their fellow Marines from their first battle with the Japanese on Guadalcanal, through the rain forests of Cape Gloucester and the strongholds of Peleliu, across the bloody sands of Iwo Jima and through the horror of Okinawa, and finally to their triumphant but uneasy return home after V-J Day.

The Pacific is based in part on the books “Helmet for My Pillow,” by Robert Leckie, and “With the Old Breed,” by Eugene B. Sledge, with additional material from “Red Blood, Black Sand,” by Chuck Tatum, and “China Marine,” by Eugene B. Sledge, as well as original interviews conducted by the filmmakers.

    The two shows are very different in what they convey. Band of brothers is about just that. A bond that forms in war among comrades that is untouchable and unbreakable. However the show "The Pacific," takes a deeper look into that of the person and how war changes someone mentally.

    Leave it to the Marines to give a very gruesome viewpoint of war. Such a contrast from band of brothers where the army looked like they were doing something glorious. This looked more like the Vietnam war. I see WW2 Soldiers more as people who wanted to be there, had a reason to why they were there, and found serving their country to be glorious

    And oh by the way did the Japanese not know how to attack without shouting or giving a war cry? They were giving up their position before they attacked. And why were they running to their enemy did they not know their rifle can reach up to at least 400+ yards?

    My father and uncles served in the Pacific, my dad in the USMC. God bless them all. Most Americans don’t know what they sacrificed.
    All schools should require that students watch the series the “Pacific”. Too many ungrateful and uniformed Americans.
