HBO's The Pacific

HBO's ten part series The Pacific debuts on March 14. I'm sure we'll be watching it as my husband and I enjoyed Band of Brothers, which was by the same producers (Tom Hanks, Stephen Spielberg and Gary Goetzman).  Unlike Band of Brothers, which was based on Stephen Abrose's book, The Pacific follows several main characters and is based on memoirs published after World War II.  The following are tie-in books in HCPL's collection:

With the Old Breed Okinawa Hero of the Pacific I'm Staying with My Boys

Eugene B. Sledge With the Old Breed: At Peleliu and Okinawa

Robert Leckie. Okinawa: The Last Battle of World War II

James Brady. Hero of the Pacific: The Life of Marine Legend John Basilone

Jim Proser. I'm Staying with My Boys: THe Heroic Life of Sgt. John Basilone, USMC
