The inspiration behind the HBO LE PACIFIQUE series was a brutal, primitive of hatred, as a characteristic of the horror of war in the Pacific, like palm trees and islands.Landed on the beach at Peleliu in 1944, in twenty years, the new US Marines recruit, Eugene Sledge can only try desperately to survive.In Peleliu and Okinawa – two of the fiercest and dirtiest Pacific battles of the Second World War – he witnesses the stupidity, brutality of both sides and the animals of hatred that every soldier has his enemy.For temporary expires in fighting, conditions on the islands say that Marines often can’t wash, stay dry, dig latrines, or even find time to eat.The suffering of the constant fear, tiredness, and filthiness, the struggle to live in a combat zone is quite debilitating.Yet, despite the terrible conditions of Sleigh finds time to keep notes that it would later turn into a book.Described as one of the best memoirs to come out of the war, With the Old Race tells with compassion and honesty, cruelty, bravery and death of the men he fought alongside, and his own journey of patriotic innocence of marked battle veteran.Eugene Sledge has become more than a legend with his memories, with The Old Breed.He has become a chronicler, a historian, a storyteller who turns the extremes of war in the Pacific – terror, comradeship, banal and extraordinary – into the conditions that we mortals can grasp ” Tom Hanks.
