WIN: The Pacific: The Most Famous Battles DVDs
Experience the bloodiest battles of the Pacific Theatre as HISTORY examines the personalities, weapons, firepower, tactics and leadership that shaped the course of the war. At Guadalcanal, where U.S. forces encountered Japanese troops in their first major ground engagement, the Allies successfully employed combined arms tactics, setting the tone for future campaigns in the theatre. Iwo Jima, famous for its indelible image of victorious U.S. Marines hoisting Old Glory over Mount Suribachi, was one of the most intense battles of the war, as entrenched Japanese troops valiantly fought to the death. Finally, Okinawa provides a testament to the futility of war, as ragged Japanese defenders resorted to suicide attacks in an attempt to halt the Allies unstoppable march towards Japans home islands, in what would be the final battle of the war.
Also included is the bonus documentary Sledgehammer: Old Breed Marine, the true story of Eugene B. Sledge, whose personal memoirs are considered one of the finest ever accounts of men at war.
