How can one person overcome so much? Seems truly impossible. Exhaustively researched. Be prepared to hear a great deal about brutal reality of POWs in Japan during WWII.
I am not much of a reader of history. However, the reviews on Unbroken were so good, I decided to read it. So glad I did. I raced thru the book listening to it at every opportunity. The horrific inhumane treatment of the POWs, especially Louie Z., makes one wonder how any of them ever were able to live a normal life again. This is a an inspirational story about one man's ability to overcome and live again. It really has changed how I think about my own life. That is so many things we complain about on a daily basis seem like nothing, absolutely petty and small. So glad I read this book!
For sure - it's an amazing story about true events. So not only does it inform listeners about actual historical events, but it is centered around an easily lovable character that makes you want to keep listening to hear his story.
I just love Louie and his mother's reunion
What an inspiring story and group of men.
The book got to the heart of Louie's triumph over so much adversity and finding Jesus and forgiveness was his biggest victory!
Too bad Hollywood didn't emphasize the biggest triumph!
