Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption - Laura Hillenbrand

Laura Hillenbrand’s new work, UNBROKEN (Random House, $27), is more than worth the nine-year wait since her last book. The author of Seabiscuit turns her eye this time to Louie Zamperini: recalcitrant juvenile delinquent, Olympic runner, WWII Army Airman, POW survivor, and ultimately a man who found God and the strength to forgive his tormentors and forge a happy life. Zamperini’s story, as improbable, resplendent, horrific, despondent, and triumphant as it is, reveals Hillenbrand’s fantastic skill in portraying Louie both as a staunch individualist, which allowed him to survive a difficult life, and as a touchstone for the times in which he lived.
