I watched the Pacific, but only once, yet I continue to watch Band of Brothers. I liked it, but I don’t feel it had the depth of characters that BoB had. Also, with me being from Europe, I guess I can relate to it more. It did give me an insight into how horrendous the fighting against the Japanese was and how savage the Japanese soldiers were. I tend to overlook the war in the pacific. I was listening to a Radio programme on Radio 2 here in the UK a month or so ago, a couple of British Japanese POWs were recounting their treatment by the Japanese, made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. One tends to think of the Waffen SS as being cruel at times, but compared to the Japanese they were girl guides it may seem!
