Relentless Will
The tale of Louis Zamperini, one of our most cherished war heroes, is undeniably gripping. The book, Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand, is an inspirational book that truly captivates
all the emotions, details and events perfectly of this great American war hero.
As a child, Louis Zamperini was notorious as a childhood criminal who was constantly in trouble with the law. As he turned into a teenager, he transformed himself into a disciplined, well-minded kid. Two important traits that drove him to be the youngest participant in the Berlin Olympics. At the time of WWII, this treasured Olympian took his turn as an airman. This would be his greatest test of his life, it will challenge his hope, love and will to fight and survive.
It is an extensive, 500 page book, but is quite an easy and enjoyable read. The book starts off by enriching you with a unique story and constantly keeps you wanting to learn more about Louis’ unique character and it doesn’t stop there. I have never felt so emotionally connected to a character then I felt with Louis because of how perfectly detailed the author writes the events of his life. She makes you feel like you are actually living his life. Not once have I teared upon reading a book, but this made sure I have.
This book takes the inexplicable horrors of war and tells it with such precise detail. Both the gruesome scenes of Saving Private Ryan and Bridge on the River Kwai clash with Unbroken on which one is more horrific. This book is not a history book, you will not learn about WWII. Rather it’s a story in which you will be enriched with the deep emotions and great details of a great American war hero. I recommend this book for everyone to read. This tale deserves to be shared to all the American people to learn about the horrors our boys went through.

This book is one of the best book i have EVER read!!! The story of a kid who like me was doing horrible in school and was able to go from someone who not many people liked to being the hero of a small town. This story is book that i would recommend to those who like both military and survival.

Forgiveness... this story weaves it though the soul of a man who cannot escape the cruelty inflicted by others, leading to his salvation.... culminating in joy. It is a lesson to be learned by the many fortunate people, my self among them, who never know the unmerited terrors life can bring. This book is not only entertaining, it's informative and evocative. Read... and open your heart.
