|Penguin delivers you to the front lines of The Pacific Theater with the real-life stories behind the HBO miniseries. Between America's retreat from China in late November 1941 and the moment General MacArthur's airplane touched down on the Japanese mainland in August of 1945, five men connected by happenstance fought the key battles of the war against Japan. From the debacle in Bataan, to the miracle at Midway and the relentless vortex of Guadalcanal, their solemn oaths to their country later led one to the Great Marianas Turkey Shoot and the others to the coral strongholds of Peleliu, the black terraces of Iwo Jima and the killing fields of Okinawa, until at last the survivors enjoyed a triumphant, yet uneasy, return home. In The Pacific , Hugh Ambrose focuses on the real-life stories of the five men who put their lives on the line for our country. To deepen the story revealed in the miniseries and go beyond it, the book dares to chart a great ocean of enmity known as The Pacific and the brave men who fought. Some considered war a profession, others enlisted as citizen soldiers. Each man served in a different part of the war, but their respective duties required every ounce of their courage and their strength to defeat an enemy who preferred suicide to surrender. The medals for valor which were pinned on three of them came at a shocking price-a price paid in full by all. View the HBO trailer Watch a Video View a video with Hugh Ambrose Watch a Video|

Your understanding of our part in the Pacific theater will be much broader.
We picked up "the Pacific" DVD's at Costco and after that I had to read the "companion" book. If possible it is even better than the series but in a different way. It has two different characters that don't appear in the series that give a totally different perspective to the story. I am not a fast reader but I have been glued to this book. It is just as riviting as his father's book "Band of Brothers" but I think it does a better job telling the broader picture. Needless to say I have a richer understanding of the war in the Pacific.
The book, The Pacific, is very descriptive and provides details as a companion to the HBO movie series of the same title. Well written and easy to follow with highlited photos provided by the participants of the battles. Mr. Hugh Ambrose is to be commended on the quality of his writing.
Pacific Book by Hugh Ambrose
I enjoy reading historical military books. I watched The HBO series by the same name and enjoyed it. Real stories about real people who served our country at the risk of their lives is very inspiring!! The seller priced this novel moderately and was quick on mailing it to me.
Excellent book by Hugh Ambrose
I have read all of the Steven Ambrose books but never a book by Hugh Ambrose. This book is one of the best that I have read about WW2 in the Pacific.I give it 5 stars and 2 thumbs up would highly recomend to a WW2 reader!
Great service. Thx for a smooth transaction.
I bought this book for my son to enjoy because he wanted it. He talked about the book but I dont know if he read it yet.
