Review: The Pacific

The Pacific miniseries is based on real events, mainly inspired by the memoirs of two U.S. Army soldiers. Eugene Sledge and Robert Leckie are those who provided information regarding their missions in the Pacific during the Second World War.

Basically, the miniseries is based on story inspired by the war between the United States and Japan. The main focus of the series is on the lives of the two authors and soldier John Basilone.

The Pacific presents the escalation of the war between Japan and USA. The Soldiers are the ones caught in the middle, and they have to manage to survive that inferno. The three main characters are caught in a war that suddenly erupts and have to live their daily lives in the trenches. Besides the memories of the two veterans, the producers also use other books and memoirs of soldiers who fought alongside those who are the main characters in the series. The Miniseries shows the most important battles of Americans against Japanese, the first infantry division being in the spotlight. Among the battles that are highlighted are the ones in Guadalcanal, Okinawa, Cape Gloucester, and even the battle at Iwo Jima.

Hugh Ambrose wrote the story of the two characters that appear in the miniseries, Sledge and Bastilone, but also the stories of their friends. The various characters of the miniseries offer an extensive vision of the Pacific War, includes the fall of Philippines, putting in a dramatic light the experiences and emotions of the soldiers during the war.

Verdict:

The prisoners of war, the airmen, the soldiers, and their leaders are all presented in a very authentic way in the series. The viewers can understand exactly what these people had gone through during the Second World War and this makes The Pacific a top series.
