Join the Random House Reader’s Circle for author chats and more. In boyhood, Louis Zamperini was an incorrigible delinquent. As a teenager, he channeled his defiance into running, discovering a prodigious talent that had carried him to the Berlin Olympics. But when World War II began, the athlete became an airman, embarking on a journey that led to a doomed flight on a May afternoon in 1943. When his Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean, against all odds, Zamperini survived, adrift on a foundering life raft. Ahead of Zamperini lay thousands of miles of open ocean, leaping sharks, 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. Unbroken is an unforgettable testament to the resilience of the human mind, body, and spirit, brought vividly to life by Seabiscuit author Laura Hillenbrand. Hailed as the top nonfiction book of the year by Time magazine • Winner of the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for biography and the Indies Choice Adult Nonfiction Book of the Year award “Extraordinarily moving . . . a powerfully drawn survival epic.”—The Wall Street Journal “[A] one-in-a-billion story . . . designed to wrench from self-respecting critics all the blurby adjectives we normally try to avoid: It is amazing, unforgettable, gripping, harrowing, chilling, and inspiring.”—New York “Staggering . . . mesmerizing . . . Hillenbrand’s writing is so ferociously cinematic, the events she describes so incredible, you don’t dare take your eyes off the page.”—People “A meticulous, soaring and beautifully written account of an extraordinary life.”—The Washington Post “Ambitious and powerful . . . a startling narrative and an inspirational book.”—The New York Times Book Review “Magnificent . . . incredible . . . [Hillenbrand] has crafted another masterful blend of sports, history and overcoming terrific odds; this is biography taken to the nth degree, a chronicle of a remarkable life lived through extraordinary times.”—The Dallas Morning News “An astonishing testament to the superhuman power of tenacity.”—Entertainment Weekly “A tale of triumph and redemption . . . astonishingly detailed.”—O: The Oprah Magazine “[A] masterfully told true story . . . nothing less than a marvel.”—Washingtonian “[Hillenbrand tells this] story with cool elegance but at a thrilling sprinter’s pace.”—Time “Hillenbrand [is] one of our best writers of narrative history. You don’t have to be a sports fan or a war-history buff to devour this book—you just have to love great storytelling.”—Rebecca Skloot, author of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks

Quicklet On Laura Hillenbrand S Unbroken A World War Ii Story Of Survival Resilience And Redemption

by Brett Keith Davidson, Quicklet On Laura Hillenbrand S Unbroken A World War Ii Story Of Survival Resilience And Redemption Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Quicklet On Laura Hillenbrand S Unbroken A World War Ii Story Of Survival Resilience And Redemption books, ABOUT THE BOOK Laura Hillenbrand's second full-length focuses on the life of Louis Zamperini, the Olympic miler who became a war hero. His story has the ring of an Errol Flynn adventure flick (although Basil Rathbone would have made a bad Mutsuhiro Watanabe), and ever since his return home people have been vying for the rights to his story. Zamperini has twice released his own version of the events, both under the title "The Devil at my Heels". This work, along with the two original accounts, represents a precious resource in the field of history. It is important for these stories to be told; as our World War Two veterans are approaching old age, we need to record their stories and document their journeys just as Hillenbrand has done here. It is important to study the hard facts of war, but we also need to try and come to terms with the emotional and very personal thing that a war is for the people who experience it. In volunteering at the Windsor Historical Society's Veterans' Memories Project, I have come to understand the historical value of the veteran's experience. MEET THE AUTHOR Brett Davidson received his BA from the University of Windsor and his MA from Carleton Universitity. He teaches history at Eldercollege in Windsor, Ontario and has published a biography of Charles G.D. Roberts. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Louis Silvie Zamperini was born on January 26, 1917 in Olean, New York. His parents, Anthony and Louise, had immigrated from Italy only a few years previously. From the time he was born, the little boy that they called "toots" was a handful. The family moved to Torrance, California because of Louie's pneumonia and they were one of the few Italian families in the area. With a natural desire to challenge authority, Louis grew to be a master thief and trouble maker. When the police in Torrance received a call, his door was the first they knocked at. His life was headed to the gutter when his brother Pete started coaching Louis as a runner. Louis broke high school and college track records before he qualified for the 1936 Berlin Olympics. His race impressed many as he ran the fastest lap in the 5000 meters, but he ran it too late and finished 7th. The feat "earned" Louie a handshake from Hitler, and the admiration of his countrymen. He returned to the United States and continued to set UCAA records and he was focused on winning at the next Olympic games.
