And it’s a very evocative stuff.

The guys, though, that fought in the Pacific, that fixed1 things in the Pacific, worlds away from the glories of marching down streets in Paris. Remember, they are on the islands, specks2 in the Pacific that nobody has ever heard of.

These guys in the Pacific got to essentially3 play naked volleyball when they had time off. And the guys in Europe got to go to Paris, France and go  see shows in Leicester Square. The glory and the glamour4 is distinctly distinctive5.

And a far more brutal6 war in the Pacific, if you read things like Flags of Our Fathers, as barbarous as the Nazis7 were to Jews and others, there were still some rules of engagement on the battlefield, but in the Pacific, it was just savagery8 all the time.

There was, uh, this was interesting. Band of Brothers came out, it was premiering, it actually premiered during 9/11, and we did not know what the reaction was going to be. Was it going to be the last thing anybody wanted to see, or was it going to be some sort of a tonic9? The Pacific, now is coming out where it represents a war that was of racism10 and terror. And what it seems is so the only way to complete one of these battles in these small specks of rock in the middle of nowhere, was to, I’m sorry, kill them all. And does that sound familiar to what we might be going through today? (Today) So, it’s, is there anything new under the sun? It seems as though history keeps repeating itself.

The other thing, Tom, in the Pacific, you didn’t have a correspondents corps  you had in Europe and that whole cadre of reporters going out on bombing runs, for example, out of wonder, and covering everything. Ernie Pyle didn't get to the Pacific until later. It was there that he was killed. And because they were island hopping11, it was a lot harder to keep up with what was going on there as opposed to what was going on…

Even the great Ernie Pyle when he finally moved to the Pacific theatre and began to write about it. He was involved in a massive, amphibious landing, It is as if you couldn’t even tell what was going on, he went out on the rail of his ship in the middle of the night, thinking he was going to be in the middle of a huge flotilla, there wasn’t even a ship on the horizon. That’s how…
