about this item

There are many so-called ordinary people whose lives merit the telling to a wide audience, and Louis Zamperini is certainly one of them. Hillenbrand, author of SEABISCUIT, has once again selected an unlikely but immensely appealing champion around whom to center her tale. UNBROKEN is the story of a wild youth, outstanding athlete, and WWII bombardier who became a Japanese POW after surviving an almost unbelievable ordeal at sea. Freed at last, returned to his California home, Zamperini found himself fighting an equally cruel (but for years unnamed) enemy: post-traumatic stress disorder. The second part of his life, post-War, becomes an equally inspiring tale. Interspersed with the author's explorations of the history and culture against which Zamperini's adventures, travails, and triumphs occurred, the book becomes a portrait of an unforgettable individual. UNBROKEN was selected by Publishers Weekly as a 2010 Top 10 Book.
