A true story of survival

by Grace W on Sep 28, 2014

This book is the true story of one man's survival and triumph over incredible events. It is very well written and is soon to be released as a movie. No fictional account could compare with what actually happened to this man. His courage and will to live overcame obstacles that few of us could face. It is an unforgettable story.


A Taut Story of Survival in World War II

by FanOfTimeLifeBooks on Sep 19, 2014

Unbroken is a dramatic and taut biography of Olympic runner, bombardier, and World War II prisoner of war Louie Zamperini. This fast-moving book tells of Zamperini's turbulent boyhood, experiences at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, his service on a B-24 Liberator in the Pacific, his survival epic on a raft in the Pacific, malnourishment and mistreatment in Japanese prisoner of war camps, and his recovery from alcoholism in the years after World War II. Author Laura Hillenbrand is unflinching in her portrayal of Japanese atrocities in the Asia/Pacific Theater. The book emphasizes the themes of courage, survival, and forgiveness. Though a thoroughly documented and meticulously researched historical biography, this book reads like an engrossing novel--once you get started on this book it will be very difficult to put down.

This book is very interesting, and a true story, although emotionally difficult to read at times because of the extremely difficult situations this man, Mr. Zamperini, is in.
