Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience and Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand, 473 pages, read by Tammy, on 07/29/2012

This is the story of one man’s journey from fighting to survive physically from a bomber crash in the sea, and fighting for physical and mental survival as a prisoner of war to coming to terms with his experiences and learning to forgive and reclaim his own life.

Louis Zamperini had trained as an athlete leading him to compete in the Berlin Olympics but WWII changed his calling to airman. On a May afternoon in 1943, with the crash of his bomber, Zamperini began a much longer journey of endurance. A test of his will to live and to overcome.
