Unbroken – A World War II Story Of Survival, Resilience And Redemption
Appearing in paperback for the first time with 20 new photos and an extensive Q and A with author Laura Hillenbrand.
As a teenager, he channeled his defiance into running, discovering a prodigious talent that had carried him to the Berlin Olympics.
But when World War II began, the athlete became an airman, embarking on a journey that led to a doomed flight on a May afternoon in 1943.
When his Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean, against all odds, Zamperini survived, adrift on a foundering life raft.
Ahead of Zamperini lay thousands of miles of open ocean, leaping sharks, thirst and starvation, enemy aircraft, and, beyond, a trial even greater.
Driven to the limits of endurance, Zamperini would answer desperation with ingenuity; suffering with hope, resolve, and humor; brutality with rebellion.
His fate, whether triumph or tragedy, would be suspended on the fraying wire of his will.
