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 have listened to this story three times in less than one year. The story of Louis's courage amidst unbeatable odds will stay with me all my days. Also, the narrator, Edward Herman, soon became as important as the story itself.
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.
