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. Captured by the Japanese and driven to the limits of endurance, Zamperini would answer desperation with ingenuity; suffering with hope, resolve, and humor.… (mer)

A remarkable story, a remarkable man, a remarkable life. ( )
  SteveCarl | Jun 24, 2024 |
He was a delinquent and an athlete and when WWII broke out he became an airman. In 1943 he embarked on a doomed flight and he crashed into the Pacific Ocean. Against all odds, he survived. Then a trial even greater. This is a unforgettable testament to the resilience of the human mind, body and spirit.

Wow... words fail me. This book was amazing, heartbreaking, moving, terrifying, inspirational, unbelievable... beautiful. I don't typically read non-fiction, but my book club selected it. I am so very glad they did.
My grandfather was a Navy Ace in WWII, and was shot down over Japanese waters and forced to wait for rescue in his tiny life raft. After almost 12 hours, he saw a ship on the horizon and used his signal mirror (which we still have), not knowing if it was an American or a Japanese vessel. It turned out to be American, and he was rescued. His story has been a part of my family's history for as long as I can remember, and also chronicled in numerous accounts and books. Clearly, my grandfather's story doesn't come close to what Louie endured, however my beloved, heroic grandfather died in 2009, and after reading this book, I now realize the unparalleled opportunity I missed out on by not speaking with him in detail about his time in the war. READ THIS BOOK. ( )

I loved it. It was difficult , so many horrible things happen, but the man shines through and the story is immensely satisfying. ( )

"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.
