That it is a true story of an incredible man of honor and valour and GREATNESS!
I loved that it updates all the close people to Louis.
The horrors that Louis went through while in the prison camps and that he was able to stay alive through the unimaginable beatings and conditions! Triumph in the end!!!!!!!!
no I have not.
yes I laughed with Louis and saddened greatly at the continual harshness of the Japanese captors. (The Bird)
Would recommend this book to everyone!
made me tear up several times at the incredible power of the human spirit and the faith of a man developed in dire circumstances forgotten for a time and recalled to remembrance through the efforts of a loving spouse and an inspired minister. a wonderful story of family love and Devotion.
I cannot deny that this is a good story. Well written and well narrated. But some of the details go beyond what is needed for a good story. They do not add much to the amazing feat of Zamperini's survival. But it is still worth spending the credit and time to listen.
not many could survive and later thrive after an ordeal like this. WWII was the the worst of humanity and brought out the best of humanity to stop it.
60 years old. Married to a wonderful woman for 31 years. Live and work in Texas.
A fantastic story of a great man's life. He w as a man's man from beginning to end.
