by Laura Hillenbrand:
Louis Zamperini was a true American hero: He proudly represented the United States as a champion runner in the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, served his country as a skilled Air Corps bombardier during World War II, and survived more than a month lost at sea after his plane crashed into the Pacific Ocean—only to end up as a prisoner of war in Japan.
When he was finally released, Zamperini was tormented by personal demons and wracked by post-traumatic stress disorder. After meeting evangelical minister Billy Graham, he became a born-again Christian and was able to forgive the captors who tortured him.
More than a military biography, Unbroken
is a timeless, engrossing, and inspiring story of bravery, endurance, and resilience.
