Wiki

'The Pacific' tracks the intertwined real-life journeys of three U.S. Marines - Robert Leckie (James Badge
Dale), Eugene Sledge (Joe Mazzello) and John Basilone (Jon Seda) - across the vast canvas of the Pacific Theater during World War II. The miniseries follows these men and their fellow Marines from their first battle with the Japanese on
Guadalcanal, through the rain forests of Cape Gloucester and the strongholds of Peleliu, across the bloody sands of Iwo Jima and through the horror ofOkinawa, and finally to their triumphant but uneasy return home after V-J Day.
The music featured in this mini-series is by award-winning film composer Hans Zimmer, and Geoff Zanelli and Blake Neely.
Zimmer has composed music for more than 100 films, including the blockbusters The Lion King, Rain Man, Gladiator, The Last Samurai, Pirates of the Caribbean and The Dark Knight.
