The Pacific

A 10-part mini-series from the creators of "Band of Brothers" telling the intertwined stories of three Marines during America's battle with the Japanese in the Pacific during World War II.

HBO's "Band of Brothers" is still a revered epic that dramatized the stories of our parents and grandparents, who sacrificed like no other generation to ensure our American freedom and ideals were preserved from fascism and unspeakable human cruelty.

The production took a talented group of young actors who each adopted the character of a real-life soldier, as their battle stories were brought to life by executive producers Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman.

The result was a resounding and emotional snapshot that reminded us how tenuous our daily lives are in the wake of an act of war.
