I'm a Marine, but I like BoB better, for reasons already mentioned. It was hard to get into the characters as they were trying to cover too many different units in The Pacific, whereas BoB covered one rifle company (and even then, only a key handful of men).

I thought BoB's best episodes were up front, then sort of tapered off, whereas The Pacific was the opposite. I was really aggravated by The Pacific's treatment of Guadalcanal; I thought it could have been so much better, and that's also part of why I suppose I prefer BoB better.

As others have mentioned, BoB is also more of a 'feel good' story, and so was perhaps destined to be more popular. But I think The Pacific really settled in once it got to Sledge at Pelelieu and Okinawa.

Gunfreak I would recommend a piece of historical fiction for you, written by a former Marine Raider, John McCormick: "The Right Kind of War." Probably my favorite book of all time.

V/R,
Jack
