An Inspiring Story,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption (Audio CD)
"Unbroken" is the almost incredible story of Louis Zamperini, Olympian, Air Force Veteran, prisoner of war and inspirational speaker. Normally I tell a lot of the facts of a history or biography, but this book reads so much like a novel that I want you to have the thrill of suspense that I did.
To give you a few details, Zamperini grew up in California, became an Olympic runner who was expected to medal at the 1940 Tokyo Summer Olympics that were cancelled due to World War II. Joining the Army Air Force, Zamperini was shot down over the Pacific, floated in a raft for 47 days after which they were captured by Japanese. Author Laura Hillenbrand tells of the unspeakable cruelties inflicted on the prisoners until their liberation by Allied Forces. Upon return to the States Zamperini struggled from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder until, well I better stop here.
Suffice it to say, "Unbroken" is a well written tale of courage that truly could not be broken. It tells a of a tragedy of war that is often overlooked, the sufferings of the POW. Whether you are student of World War II or just looking for an inspiration "Unbroken" is the choice for you.
