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 in key battles of the war against Japan. In The Pacific, noted historian Hugh Ambrose focuses on the real-life stories of four U.S. Marines and a U.S. Navy carrier pilot who put their lives on the line for our country.
