Unbroken gives us an opportunity to read about one World War II veteran’s war experience. It reveals what Louis Zamperini went through while serving in the United States Air Force and the hardships he endured as a Prisoner of War for over two years in Japan. His story certainly helps generate appreciation of the sacrifices that veterans have made while serving our country. Unbroken is a well-researched book, detailing Zamperini’s struggles both as a prisoner and as a freed man. This is an excellent book about a man who has led a fascinating life.  Angelina Jolie is directing a movie about Zamperini’s life with the release planned for December 2014.
