Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand
Beginning with his childhood as a sharp yet incorrigible and defiant young man, this is a story about Louis Zamperini. Zamperini found his love for energy and breaking boundaries when his older brother got him involved in running. Louis excelled. As WWII started, the brothers were in separate branches of the military. One flight of Louis’s while stationed near Hawaii resulted in a crash landing in the sea and over a month on a raft with two crew mates. Rescued by the Japanese, the ordeal as POW’s brought them to the edges of their endurance. An epilogue of post war struggle and Louie’s eventual forgiveness is included.
