Wow I wanted to get on a plane and go get the bird myself. Powerful message about the war and what so many went through at the hands of these have to say animals. To me the prison guards were cowards taking advantage of real men. Their family's are disgraced from the cowardly actions they took. All that being said war is not the way. God bless our troops and the many that have served. God bless all POWs.
This is a compelling story and Edward Hermann is a great narrator. Hillenbrand really does her research into all of the details of the story. It's not the first book on Zamperini (he wrote two himself) but it is a really good one to learn alot about him, the Japanese camps, and his amazing story of survival.
Outstanding story that I previously did not know about. May be greatest story I've ever heard. Ok for high schoolers
I truly enjoyed every moment of this book.
As a Christian woman born in 1948, I was interested too because my father was a POW. I felt the desperation and also the strength coming from this remarkable man.God delivered many miracles to him.
