Wednesday, April 14th, 2010, at noon, Hugh Ambrose, a noted historian and consultant on the critically acclaimed miniseries The Pacific, currently airing on HBO, will host a special book singing at The HBO Shop in Manhattan at 42nd St. & Sixth Ave. 

Additionally, Ambrose was a consultant on the production of the Price for Peace documentary, for which Steven Spielberg and Hugh’s father Stephen Ambrose were the executive producers.  He was an adviser to his father on his books, and has led battlefield tours through Europe and along the Pacific Rim.   

The Pacific, written by Ambrose and currently #4 on the New York Times Bestseller list, is an official companion book inspired by the HBO miniseries. It offers additional information and insight on the war from a historian’s perspective. Narrative history at its best, visceral, compelling,  and intelligent, the book was compiled in part from the exhaustive research and in-depth interviews conducted in preparation for the miniseries.
 
Focusing on five men who fought in the Pacific -- three of the Marines featured in the HBO miniseries and two other men who had powerful connections to them -- Ambrose traces the course of the Pacific War from America’s retreat from China to the post-war rebuilding of Japan. Going beyond the stories told in the miniseries, THE PACIFIC recalls family dramas that played out in small-town America alongside epic battles half a world away that would determine the war’s outcome. From a Japanese prisoner of war camp in the Philippines to a Melbourne filled with American fighting men on “R&R,” to the muggy jungles of  Guadalcanal, THE PACIFIC offers an evocative history lesson and fresh insights into the great consequences of war and how it impacted on the lives of the ordinary men who were central to the events.
