    Default Hanks and Spielberg Next WWII Project - Eighth Air Force Mini-series

    This time around, Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg-who previously delivered the likes of 2001′s “Band of Brothers” and 2010′s “The Pacific”-will create a miniseries that will focus on the Eighth Air Force.


    The series will be based on Donald L. Miller’s nonfiction book “Masters of the Air: America’s Bomber Boys Who Fought the Air War Against Nazi Germany.”

    I like Band of brothers,really did not like the pacific too political.
    I hope he will keep his political view out of this one.

    BoB was excellent.
    With The Pacific, I couldn't empathize with any of the characters. I couldn't really care less if they lived or died, and it was difficult to distinguish one from the other.
    I hope they can fix that in their next effort.

    Best Regards,

    If you have not then read 'The old breed' by Sledge its excellent and to fair the Pacific did the book justice.
