The story itself is very detailed. The writing is so descriptive it puts you right there with Louis and his comrades. The narration only adds to the suspense and real life drama. This is a must read. It brings history to life and gave me a new appreciation for all of those POWs and what they endured. Highly highly recommend.
Unbroken is the story of one man's unbreakable spirit in the face of unspeakable cruelty at the hands of hi captors, as a POW in Japan during WWII. It is also the story of the hell into which he sank after the war and the resumption of his spirit by which he reclaimed his life. A true story, this book is unbelievably riveting and incredibly inspiring.
