#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE • Hailed as the top nonfiction book of the year by Time magazine • Winner of the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for biography and the Indies Choice Adult Nonfiction Book of the Year award

On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared. It was that of a young lieutenant, the plane’s bombardier, who was struggling to a life raft and pulling himself aboard. So began one of the most extraordinary odysseys of the Second World War.

The lieutenant’s name was Louis Zamperini. In boyhood, he’d been a cunning and incorrigible delinquent, breaking into houses, brawling, and fleeing his home to ride the rails. As a teenager, he had channeled his defiance into running, discovering a prodigious talent that had carried him to the Berlin Olympics and within sight of the four-minute mile. But when war had come, the athlete had become an airman, embarking on a journey that led to his doomed flight, a tiny raft, and a drift into the unknown.

Ahead of Zamperini lay thousands of miles of open ocean, leaping sharks, a foundering raft, thirst and starvation, enemy aircraft, and, beyond, a trial even greater. Driven to the limits of endurance, Zamperini would answer desperation with ingenuity; suffering with hope, resolve, and humor; brutality with rebellion. His fate, whether triumph or tragedy, would be suspended on the fraying wire of his will.

In her long-awaited new book, Laura Hillenbrand writes with the same rich and vivid narrative voice she displayed in Seabiscuit. Telling an unforgettable story of a man’s journey into extremity, Unbroken is a testament to the resilience of the human mind, body, and spirit.

Praise for Unbroken
 
“Extraordinarily moving . . . a powerfully drawn survival epic.”The Wall Street Journal

“Ambitious and powerful . . . a startling narrative and an inspirational book.”—The New York Times Book Review

“Moving and, yes, inspirational . . . [Laura] Hillenbrand’s unforgettable book . . . deserve[s] pride of place alongside the best works of literature that chart the complications and the hard-won triumphs of so-called ordinary Americans and their extraordinary time.”—Maureen Corrigan, Fresh Air
 
“Hillenbrand . . . tells [this] story with cool elegance but at a thrilling sprinter’s pace.”Time

Unbroken is too much book to hope for: a hellride of a story in the grip of the one writer who can handle it.”—Christopher McDougall, author of Born to Run

An epic story of survival

Truly amazing and captivating from beginning to end..

Author "Laura Hillenbrand" has done an incredible job by bringing each character and each incident to life by the way she has narrated the story. The description of POW camp conditions as portrayed in the book is unbelievable. And there are some incidents in the book which are really hard to believe such as 200+ blows to head of an malnourished man (and he survives). And the same man who is malnourished, suffering from serious dysentery problem hold some six foot heavy beam on top of head for 30 mins.

Still an unforgettable epic story to

A great read

Laura has done it again. What a great story to tell! Her narrative style makes an already wonderful story sound even better. One cannot but feel inspired. The detailed research which would have gone into this shows in every page. Looking forward to her next title.

The Triumph of Human Spirit

The book traces the journey of Louis Zamperini from childhood pranks to Olympic track champ to Air Force bombardier and finally as a POW in Janapese hands during WW-II.
The story also touches upon the camaraderie which develops withing a close fighting group of the B24 bomber crews, the hearbreak they face when one of them dies knowing very well that they may share the same fate one day.
Louis goes thru hell, first in a dingy for almost 2000 miles in the Pacific ocean when his bomber crashes down and then as a POW subjected to unbelievable tortures and deprivations by the Japanese. Almost 70%
