Band of Brothers- Based on the bestseller by Stephen E. Ambrose, the epic 10-part miniseries Band of Brothers tells the story of Easy Company, 506th Regiment of the 101st Airborne Division, U.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.

The Pacific- The Pacific is an epic 10-part miniseries that delivers a realistic portrait of WWII's Pacific Theatre as seen through the intertwined odysseys of three U.S. Marines - Robert Leckie, John Basilone and Eugene Sledge. The extraordinary experiences of these men and their fellow Marines take them from the first clash with the Japanese in the haunted jungles of Guadalcanal, through the impenetrable rain firests of Cape Gloucester, across the blasted coral strongholds of Peleliu, up the black sand terraces of Iwo Jima, through the killing fields of Okinawa, to the triumphant, yet uneasy, return home after V-J Day. The viewer will be immersed in combat through the intimate perspective of this diverse, relatable group of men pushed to the limit in battle both physically and psychologically against a relentless enemy unlike any encountered before.

    Love all of the extra stuff on the dvds

    Posted by Tiffany Delozier on Mar 7th 2021

    My boyfriend bought this for me as a late Valentines Day gift. I didnt know that there would be a special feature on the disks that lets you learn more about the men and gives you info on stuff like where they went and what battles they fought in along with a list of the different ranks so that you dont feel lost when the men address each other so its definitely a nice bonus. We are almost done watching Band of Brothers and then we will start on The Pacific since we have never seen that one. I love the package the dvds come in as well love the pictures they chose and love the little case I guess you could call it that the whole thing sits in.
