On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared--Lt. Louis Zamperini.

Biography
  BooksInMirror | Feb 19, 2024 |
I saw the movie, "Unbroken", years ago. To this day, it's still one of my favorite movies. I came across the book at the Friends of the Library semi-annual book sale. Since I enjoyed the movie so much, I knew that the book would also be an enjoyable read. As was the movie, the book was quite intense. It's well-written and nicely combines history and Louis Zamperini's recollections of the time period of the second World War. Including the complete history of Mr. Zamperini's life, the trials and tribulations, the ups and downs, gives the reader a true indication of his life. A definite must for history buffs and middle/high school students! ( )

This book was recommended to me after I read The Wager: A Tale of Shipwreck, Mutiny and Murder and I must say that it was a great one. Can hardly believe that this is a true story. Well worth the read if you are looking for a story of human trials and tribulations and how much the human body can put up with in terms harsh treatments which breaks some but motivates others to overcome and transcend beyond. Truely inspirational and a must read for all lovers of non-fiction war time books. ( )

Insightful look at a child's life in the 1920's, competitive running in the 1930's, and after that - flying, air combat, survival at sea, survival in horrific POW camps, survival in marriage, and eventually redemption. The horrors make the redemption that much more remarkable, but the horrors were hard to fathom - and to read. ( )
  dlinnen | Feb 3, 2024 |
Unbroken is a biography of the life of Louie Zamperini, American Olympic athlete, World War 2 airman, crash survivor, and prisoner-of-war. It is a story of perseverance, courage, resourcefulness, and ultimately redemption.
I found this story well-written, and well-researched. The drama of the story is slightly under-played, the real drama being the direness of the circumstances that Zamperini encounters, endures, and ultimately transcends.

"Anyone who enjoyed Hillenbrand's previous book, Seabiscuit, will know that she has a fine line in compelling narrative. Unbroken is no different: meticulously researched and powerful. The reader, unlike the airmen, would rather the days adrift went on longer. They end, however, in grim style. Zamperini and fellow survivor are in sight of land when they are captured by Japanese forces. The Red Cross, however, is never informed and the two are declared dead."
 
The ideal way to read “Unbroken” would be with absolutely no knowledge of how Mr. Zamperini’s life unfolded. Ms. Hillenbrand has written her book so breathlessly, and with such tight focus, that she makes it difficult to guess what will happen to him from one moment to the next, let alone how long he was able to survive under extreme duress...So “Unbroken” is a celebration of gargantuan fortitude, that of both Ms. Hillenbrand (whose prose shatters any hint of her debilitating fatigue) and Mr. Zamperini’s. It manages to be as exultant as “Seabiscuit” as it tells a much more harrowing, less heart-warming story.

[Preface] All he could see, in every direction, was water. It was June 22, 1943. Somewhere on the Pacific Ocean, American military airman and Olympic runner Louie Zamperini lay on a small raft, drifting.
In the predawn darkness of August 26, 1929, in the back bedroom of a small house in Torrance, California, a twelve-year-old boy sat up in bed, listening.
[Epilogue] On a June day in 1952, just off a winding road in California's San Gabriel Mountains, a mess of boys tumbled out of a truck and stood blinking in the sunshine.
