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.  it Was That Of A Young Lieutenant, The Plane’s Bombardier, Who Was Struggling To A Life Raft And Pulling Himself Aboard.  So Began One Of The Most Extraordinary Odysseys Of The Second World War.

the Lieutenant’s Name Was Louis Zamperini.  in Boyhood, He’d Been A Cunning And Incorrigible Delinquent, Breaking Into Houses, Brawling, And Fleeing His Home To Ride The Rails.  as A Teenager, He Had Channeled His Defiance Into Running, Discovering A Prodigious Talent That Had Carried Him To The Berlin Olympics And Within Sight Of The Four-minute Mile.  but When War Had Come, The Athlete Had Become An Airman, Embarking On A Journey That Led To His Doomed Flight, A Tiny Raft, And A Drift Into The Unknown.

ahead Of Zamperini Lay Thousands Of Miles Of Open Ocean, Leaping Sharks, A Foundering Raft, 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.

in Her Long-awaited New Book, Laura Hillenbrand Writes With The Same Rich And Vivid Narrative Voice She Displayed In seabiscuit.  telling An Unforgettable Story Of A Man’s Journey Into Extremity, Unbroken Is A Testament To The Resilience Of The Human Mind, Body, And Spirit.

The Barnes & Noble Review

it Is Hillenbrand's Great Accomplishment That The Heart Of unbroken, Describing The More Than Two Brutal Years Between [louie Zamperini]'s Crash And His Unlikely Return Home, Is Not An Exhausting Catalog Of Misery But A Suspenseful And At Times Uplifting Testament To Human Survival. And Just As Hillenbrand's Previous Book, seabiscuit, Was About More Than A Horse, So unbroken Ends Up Being About More Than The Punishing Wartime Experiences Of One Man.
