The series follows several Marines as they make their way across the Pacific. I cannot imagine what being in those battles was like but they way they were portrayed gave me a pretty good idea. I now know why men, and women, come back from war messed up! We need to do a better job with our returning Vets, we owe them so much.
Although I did not like it as much as “Band of Brothers” I thought is was a good series and would recommend it for watching. It is filmed in 10 parts each one hour long. I bought the set that includes “Band of Brothers” and some other material that I have not watched yet but I am looking forward to it.
I used to think that John Wayne movies about the war were good, and I do still like them, but we certainly had a sanitized way of portraying life in the trenches.
If you have time, give it a watch.
