Cheers Olife. If it's anything like band of Brothers I'm sure it is excellent but I don't have Sky channel.

I saw the first two episodes. I have been waiting for the blu-ray, now available for pre-order on Amazon.com.
Very good show from what I saw.

Also much of it is actually non-fiction. The show follows three marines during the Pacific war. Two of them wrote books after the war. So much of it is based on those two books. I know one is called With the Old Breed.

Correct. Eugene Sledge wrote it. He is a character I have only seen fleetingly in the first few episodes (Upto ep.5 now), but that is because he joined up a little later due to his heart murmer. Should see more of him soon.

The Sgt who won the MoH at Guadalcanal is also in the Clint Eastwood film 'flags of our fathers'.
