If you are a fan of World War II dramas, you might have watched or heard of Band of Brothers and The Pacific, two acclaimed miniseries produced by Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg. These shows depicted the heroism and horror of the American soldiers who fought on the ground and in the sea during the war.

That’s where Masters of the Air comes in. This new miniseries, which premiered on Apple TV+ on January 26, 2024, is a companion piece to Band of Brothers and The Pacific, but focuses on the 100th Bomb Group, also known as the Bloody Hundredth, who served under the Eighth Air Force for the US during World War II.

The show follows the lives and missions of Maj John “Bucky” Egan (Callum Turner) and Maj Gale “Buck” Cleven (Austin Butler), two inseparable friends who lead their squadron of B-17 bombers over Nazi-occupied Europe. Along the way, they encounter danger, death, and drama, as they face enemy fighters, flak, mechanical failures, and moral dilemmas.

Masters of the Air is a stunning achievement in television, with breathtaking aerial sequences, realistic sets and costumes, and superb performances from a talented cast of rising stars. The show does not shy away from showing the brutality and tragedy of war, but also celebrates the courage and camaraderie of the airmen who risked their lives for freedom.

If you are looking for a gripping, emotional, and epic story of World War II, you should definitely check out Masters of the Air. It is a worthy successor to Band of Brothers and The Pacific, and a testament to the power of storytelling.
