"The Pacific", a mini series from Hanks and Speilberg

K CO - 3rd Battalion - 5th Marines - Finest Division
"The Pacific, telling the intertwined stories of three Marines during America's battle with the Japanese in the Pacific during World War II. "

" The Pacific" is a TV series, it is not a prequel or a sequel but the complete story of 3 U.S. Marines in the Pacific during WW11. The experiences of these men and their Marine buddies take them from training to their baptism of fire with the Japanese on Guadalcanal, through the jungle of Cape Gloucester, across Peleliu, Iwo Jima, Okinawa.....the Island hopping invasions of the USMC, till they get home after VJ-Day.

"The Pacific" is adapted from the memoir book of Eugene Sledge, "With the Old Breed" which was first published in 1981. The memoir is based on notes Sledge kept tucked away in a pocket-sized Bible he carried with him during battle.
