It's a shame that The Pacific wasn't as good as Band of Brothers. Too much focus on the romantic history of one man (though a hero). A lot more messaging about "war is terrible" left less time to focus on the actual war.

I agree. It looked promising but didn't come close to delivering on the promise.

The problem The Pacific faced is there's been too much revisionist history minimizing the crimes of the Japanese and trying to portray them as an oppressed People of Color. Though it hasn't been nearly as successful as other efforts. WWII is still too recent and the evidence is just too overwhelming. But its had some effect.

On the other hand revisionist efforts for the Germans/Nazis haven't been at all successful.
