Tom Hanks: "Itís not about maps and tactics or ultimate moments. Itís about individual guys who find out that they can do things when theyíre exhausted and that they can do things when theyíre scared. Sometimes what they can do is curl up in a ball and not do anything and other times go off and carry somebody to safety or kill a guy. You know, those are all momentous moments in anybodyís life and thatís what the details areÖthatís whatís important about any story about, I think, war is that you come down to a moment where some kid has been trained to do something and itís not a pleasant thing that he has to do."
The series is set to debut on HBO in March 2010.
