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.

I don't think I should attempt to describe this book, since I'm sure any praise I can offer will fall short of hitting the mark. "Unbroken" was a very gripping, very compelling story of wartime survival under the most horrific conditions, yet the descriptions aren't the type that would repell most readers. The story is centered on a WWII airman and former Olympic athlete Louie Zamperini, whose plane is downed in the Pacific. For a non-fiction, the book seems more like well crafted fiction. Zamperini's personal life is interesting in itself, as is his development from a trobled youth into an Olympic hero. Then the story describes his time in the Army Air Corps and his being downed in the Pacific. The survivors of the downed plane spend over a month on a life raft, drifting in the Pacific without food or water, which again makes for a superb adventure story. After being captured by the Japanese, Zamperini's determination to survive the prisoner-of-war camps is beyond heroic. And yet, after all that Zamperini endures, he manages to survive and become a model for all of us in his post-war life. Very inspiring book, and a demonstration of will conquering evil.

Hillenbrand tells an excellent, riveting story about Louie Zamperini, a young man who lived through a horrific ordeal in the Japanese prison camps during WWII. This book opened my eyes to the atrocities the Japanese inflicted upon the Allies. Much is told about Hitler and the European theater, but not as much about what happened in the Pacific. The author researches in great detail, not only Louie's life, but makes the POW experience spring to life in horrific detail in this book. Her research is thorough and her storytelling is something you will never forget. This book should be taught in every high school history class. ( )

"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.
