  • HBO/Hanks and Spielberg present: The Pacific (like Band of Brothers)

    Damn, I'm excited to see this.

    Props to The Hamburgler for letting me know about this.


    Trailer

    Whereas Band of Brothers focused on United States Army's involvement in the European Theater of Operations, the new series will be about the United States Marine Corps's actions in the Pacific Theater of Operations.


    The Pacific is to be based primarily on two memoirs of U.S. Marines: With the Old Breed by Eugene Sledge and Helmet for My Pillow by Robert Leckie.[3] The series will tell the stories of the two authors and Marine John Basilone, as the war against the Empire of Japan rages.

    Given the literary sources mentioned above, the series will feature well-known battles involving the 1st Marine Division, such as Guadalcanal, Cape Gloucester, Peleliu, and Okinawa, as well as Basilone's involvement in the Battle of Iwo Jima.

              I know. I fell in love with BOB. Own the series, and just watched it a couple weeks ago.

              Totally psyched for "The Pacific."
