A 10-part mini-series from the creators of “Band of Brothers” telling the intertwined stories of three Marines during America's battle with the Japanese in the Pacific during World War II.

  • Veteran Sergeant John Basilone ships out soon after Pearl Harbor for Guadalcanal while other young enlistees are sent to boot camp.
  • Outmanned and with supplies low, Basilone and other marines on Guadacanal rally to repel superior Japanese forces.
  • After arduous months in Guadalcanal, exhausted marines are given rest and recreation in Melbourne, where they find the girls friendly and the beer cold.
  • After leaving Melbourne, the weather works against the leathernecks as Lechie falls seriously ill and Sledge gets assigned to New Britain.
  • Basilone's fame keeps him in the U.S. selling war bonds, Leckie rejoins his company, and Sledge is reunited with Phillips in Pavuvu.
  • Water is in short supply and the stifling heat takes control on Peleliu as Leckie is wounded and evacuated.
  • Sledge finds the carnage and death of his companions on Peleilu increasingly difficult to bear as Basilone continues his bond drive in the States.
  • Frustrated with his bond selling tour, Basilone goes back to training troupes and after marrying a pretty marine sergeant, leads his men at Iwo Jima.
  • The 1st Marine Division fight a determined Japanese force on Okinawa who prefer death to surrender and are indifferent to the lives of Okinawan civilians.
  • After V-J Day Leckie and Sledge return home and try to readjust to civilian life.
