Review:

We’re at a bit of a crossroads when it comes to history. Many of the veterans of World War II the last war that had a clear winner and was “just” in most Americans minds and losing those individuals we lose a valuable part of our history that changed the world stage opening up the world economy in ways never seen before. It also saw the explosion of the American middle class and ushered in the Boomer generation. The changes that were seen in the 1960’s began with the return of the soldiers from overseas who came back with a much broader view of the world. ***

These men that served in the Pacific theater of war dealt with unimaginable hardship. My father served in the Pacific on Tinian island towards the end of his service in the military but prior to that had fought in some truly difficult areas in the Pacific and while he was reluctant to share much from his days fighting the Japanese, his stories are well reflected in “The Pacific” a terrific mini-series that aired on HBO and was produced by Tom Hanks (like its predecessor “Band of Brothers”). Based on a pair of books by two former soldiers Eugene Sledge and Robert Leckie who served in the Pacific, “The Pacific” is a marvelous series that honors the memory of those who fought and those who survived and those who did not. ---

Image & Sound:

“The Pacific” receives a very nice transfer to Blu-ray. Colors pop, detail is quite nice throughout. The 5.1 mix more than does justice to the soundtrack of the film. ---
