The Pacific Theatre of World War II, as seen through the eyes of several young Marines.
Though the final battle on Guadalcanal is very accurate, some details are left out. First, the battle last for nearly 3 days, and ammunition did run out. John Basilone was also seen killing Japanese soldiers with a machete.
Although the Marines are correctly shown using Springfield rifles in Guadalcanal, the model shown is the 1903-A3. The Marines actually used the earlier 1903 Model as distinguished by its different rear sight.
