Based on the accounts of Marines in World War II, this 10-part miniseries follows the intertwined journeys of three U.S. Marines in the Pacific Theater — Pfcs. Robert Leckie and Eugene B. Sledge and Sgt. John Basilone — from their first battle against Japan on Guadalcanal, across the sands of Iwo Jima and the horror of Okinawa, to their ultimately triumphant return after V-J Day. The producing team behind “The Pacific,” including Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg, also was behind HBO’s award-winning miniseries “Band of Brothers.”
