    Seabiscuit was one of the most electrifying and popular attractions in sports history and the single biggest newsmaker in the world in 1938, receiving more coverage than FDR, Hitler, or Mussolini. But his success was a surprise to the racing establishment, which had written off the crooked-legged racehorse with the sad tail.

    Winner of the William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award and the basis of a major film adaptation, Seabiscuit is the true story of three men and their dreams for one racehorse. A story that symbolises a pivotal moment in US history, as modern America was born out of the crucible of the Depression and the new century’s greatest nation found the courage to bet on itself to win against the odds. In 1936, the habits of 19th-century America were finally consigned to history just as Margaret Mitchell’s Gone with the Wind was published.

    En eftermiddag i maj 1943 styrtede et amerikansk bombefly ned i Stillehavet og forsvandt. Flyets bombeoperatør, Louis Zamperini, fik sig bjærget op på en redningsflåde. Dermed begyndte en af de mest bemærkelsesværdige odysséer under 2. Verdenskrig. Før krigen var Louis langdistanceløber, og han deltog i OL i Berlin i 1936. Efterfølgende var målet OL i Tokyo i 1940. Det blev som bekendt aldrig til noget, og det blev som krigsfange, at Louis kom til Japan.
