Hell was an ocean away. From the creative team that brought you the Emmy® -winning Band of Brothers comes The Pacific: an epic 10-part miniseries event telling the extraordinary story of U.S. marines in the Pacific Theater of World War II. The Pacific presents a realistic portrait of WWII's Pacific Theater as seen through the intertwined odysseys of three U.S. Marines: Robert Leckie, John Basilone and Eugene Sledge. The extraordinary experiences of these men and their fellow Marines take them from the first clash with the Japanese in the haunted jungles of Guadalcanal, through the impenetrable rain forests of Cape Gloucester, across the blasted coral strongholds of Peleliu, up the black sand terraces of Iwo Jima, through the killing fields of Okinawa, to the triumphant, yet uneasy, return home after V-J Day.
