Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience and Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand
In Unbroken, Laura Hillenbrand tells the story of Louis Zamperini, an Olympic track athlete at the 1936 Berlin games and the man many thought would be the first to break the four-minute mile. Zamperini's athletic pursuits were derailed by World War II when he joined the Air Force. His plane was shot down over the Pacific, and he and another man managed to survive in a life raft in shark-infected waters. Unfortunately, they were rescued by the Japanese who sent him to a prisoner-of-war camp, where he suffered torture and abuse for two years. Freed at the end of the war, he had trouble readjusting to civilian life until an encounter with Billy Graham helped him turn his life around. Unbroken has received positive reviews with BookPage saying, "Unbroken is a spellbinding celebration of resilience, forgiveness and the human capacity for finding beauty in the unlikeliest places."
