Mini is based on the books “With the Old Breed,” by Eugene Sledge, and “Helmet for My Pillow,” by Robert Leckie, and will look at the war through the eyes of three Marines; mini is produced by HBO Films in association with Playtone and DreamWorks Television and in collaboration with Film Victoria, the Pacific Film & Television Commission, Ausfilm and the New South Wales Film & TV Office.
