The Pacific, or the forgotten war in comparison to the European theatre of war, was a very bloody campaign. This series portrays this brilliantly. Forget about the poor reviews below, this is worth watching. Give it a couple of episodes to pull you in, but then it takes off. Band of Brothers was in my opinion the best mini series ever made, and alongside, the Wire, the Sopranos, the Pacific deserves it's place. You will not regret it!
