Band Of Brothers / The Pacific: Special Edition Gift Set
Band Of Brothers
Based on the bestseller by Stephen E. Ambrose, Band Of Brothers tells the story of Easy Company, 506th Regiment of the 101st Airborne Division, I.S. Army. Drawn from interviews with survivors of Easy Company, as well as soldiers' journals and letters, Band Of Brothers chronicles the experiences of these men who knew extraordinary bravery and extraordinary fear. They were an elite rifle company parachuting into France early on D-Day morning, fighting in the Battle of the Bulge and capturing Hitler's Eagle's Nest at Berchtesgaden. They were also a unit that suffered 150 percent casualties, and whose lives became legend.
From executive producers Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg, Gary Goetzman, The Pacific tracks the real-life journeys of three U.S. Marines - Robert Lecki (James Badge Dale), Eugene Sledge (Joe Mazzello), and John Basilone (Jon Seda) - across the vast canvas of the Pacific theater during World War II. 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 Jim, through the horror of Okinawa, and finally to their triumphant but uneasy return home after V-J Day.
