The Pacific
Band of Brothers producers Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg re-team to produce this ten-hour World War II miniseries based on the books With the Old Breed by Eugene Sledge and Helmet for My Pillow by Robert Leckie. Additional interviews conducted by the filmmakers in collaboration with Hugh Ambrose (son of late Band of Brothers author Stephen E. Ambrose) detail the arduous odysseys of U.S. Marines Sledge, Leckie, and John Basilone from their first skirmishes in Guadalcanal to their eventual return to American soil following V-J Day.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Succeeds in giving a vivid impression of the nature of this theater's combat, creating a venue for both powerful emotions and thoughtful consideration of provocative questions... [Blu-ray]"
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"An outstanding exploration of the perils of war in the Pacific, and a stark contrast from the European theater of war detailed in Band of Brothers."
‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
