We took a trip to FL this past weekend and my husband and I started the following audiobook, ‘Unbroken’ by Laura Hillenbrand (also the author of ‘Seabiscuit’).
It has been an amazing story and we have about 4 hours left to finish it up.
I was familiar with Louis Zamperini and that he was an Olympian and that he served in WWII but had no clue about the torture he faced as a POW. The story is an emotional journey for the listener (or reader) and his time as a POW is not for the faint of heart.
The following link will take you to an article from the Wall Street Journal published in November 2010 prior to the book being published (2011).
