From Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg and Gary Goetzman--the producers of the Emmy(R) and Golden Globe(R)-winning 2001 HBO miniseries 'Band of Brothers'(R)--comes this epic 10-part miniseries that tells the true stories of three Marines fighting in the brutal Pacific theater during WWII. Focusing on the intertwined odyssey of Robert Leckie (James Badge Dale), Eugene Sledge (Joe Mazzello) and John Basilone (Jon Seda), 'The Pacific' follows these heroic men and their brothers-in-arms through the first battle on Guadalcanal in 1942, into the rain forests of Cape Gloucester and strongholds of Peleliu, across the bloody sands of Iwo Jima and Okinawa and, finally, to their triumphant but uneasy return home.

Not as good as Band of Brothers but still a must buy in HD.
Not quite Band of Brothers but still epic, would definitely recommend.
It's weird because this series follows three guys whereas band of brothers was all over the place. But the difference is band of brothers became coherent and the pacific is actually the series that is all over the place. It doesn't have enough action and its hard to like the main characters. Something went wrong when this was written.
