Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience and Redemption
by Laura Hillenbrand
NonFiction 2010, 528 pages

The inspiring true story of a man who lived through a series of catastrophes
almost too incredible to be believed. In evocative, immediate descriptions,
Hillenbrand unfurls the story of Louie Zamperini–a juvenile delinquent-turned-Olympic
runner-turned-Army hero. During a routine search mission over the Pacific,
Louie’s plane crashed into the ocean, and what happened to him over the next three years
of his life is a story that will keep you glued to the pages.
