Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg are following up their hit Band of Brothers with another HBO miniseries The Pacific. This will tell the tale of the First Marines island hopping campaign in the war against Japan. You can see the trailers here:
This is a must see in my opinion, Band of Brothers was an awesome accomplishment; a tribute to the men who fought the long and nasty campaign in Europe, I expect that The Pacific will do the same for those men who fought their way up the beaches and through the jungles of island after island in the Pacific.
The first episode of The Pacific is scheduled to air on March 14, 2010
disclaimer: Dear FTC morons, HBO didn't pay me for this go away.
