Along with "Tears of Darkness,"a nuanced yet straight forward look at great American heroes. Not to be missed.
An excellent true-life account of Louis Zamperini and his comrades during WWII and their internment in Japanese prison camps! Laura Hillenbrand does a wonderful job bringing history to life and putting the reader right on the front lines with the characters. This is a must read for anybody who is facing life's hardships. Sure puts things into perspective and reminds me all over again, of the truly amazing willpower and the sacrifices made by the Veterans who served during WWII and America's other campaigns throughout history. Kudos to Laura Hillenbrand on another wonderful work. Excellent author. Excellent story. Excellent narrator. Home run! Also, Check out Seabiscuit: An American Legend by the same author. It is also extremely well written. I didn't expect to enjoy it as I'm not that interested in horse racing--but, as in Unbroken, she really brought the era to life.
One of the best I have listened to. Not only did I enjoy the book but learned much history that would have never heard. A great listen
An amazing life story. Told in a way that kept me enthralled from beginning to end. Loved it! 5 stars all the way!
The combination of words and wonderful narration of this book made me feel as if I was there. While this was a heartbreaking story, it was a real reminder of the brutality of war.
I hear voices. But maybe that's because there's always an Audible book in my ear.
This author has a unique way of making events come to life. I had to keep reminding myself that it was non-fiction. Wonderfully written and narrated, my only complaint is that it wasn't longer. Great book.
What is the audio equivalent of a page turner? Ear-grabber? Whatever. This is it. I couldn't stop listening. Edward Herrmann is just icing on the cake. He is the best reader in the game.
You wont want this story to end. Great account of WWII as well as pre-war Germany/U.S. If you liked Band of Brothers, Ghost Soldiers or Tears in the Darkness you will love this book!
What a an inspirational story. How these men stood all the torture and still survived Is amazing. It makes you proud of our military men and women.
Unbelievable story of courage, disappointment, faith, and forgiveness. It is hard to believe that this is a true story.
