From Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks and the team behind "Band of Brothers", HBO's The Pacific is an epic 10-part account of the struggle between US and Japanese forces in WWII. Seen through the eyes of three marines, the theatre of war has rarely been so captivating or so devastating.

The Pacific tracks the intertwined real-life stories of three U.S Marines, Robert Leckie, John Basilone and Eugene Sledge across the vast canvas of the Pacific Theater during World War 2. The miniseries follows these men and their fellow Marines from their first battle with the Japanese on Guadalcanal, through the rain forests of Cape Gloucester and the strongholds of Peleliu, across the bloody sands of Iwo Jima and through the horror of Okinawa, and finally to their triumphant but uneasy return home after V-J Day.

The Pacific is primarily based on two memoirs of US Marines, Eugene Sledge's With The Old Breed: At Peleliu And Okinawa and Robert Leckie's Helmet For My Pillow. The series also draws on Eugene Sledge's China Marine and Chuck Tatum's Red Blood, Black Sand, as well as original interviews conducted by the filmmakers.

Agreed, but I guess if you want it now and that fact you get an exclusive item, this is probably a good deal.

Not voting either way.

seems a nice item for a collector maybe so hot from me

In comparison to the price previously, it is a good deal. However, the Hut have got it for £33.85 and more than cusotmers get 7.5% off too

too expensive for a series that wasnt as good as band of brothers.
