Unbroken (2010) by Laura Hillenbrand is the life story of an Olympic athlete and WWII Prison of War survivor, Louis ‘Louie’ Zamperini. Biographies have a unique quality of allowing one to see another’s life from a realistic perspective. Louis Zamperini’s journey took him from a hardworking family and from off the troubled streets in California to becoming an Olympic athlete in 1936. Out the outbreak of WWII, like many other eager American young men, he joined the military. His plane broke down over the open ocean, drifting for 47 days of a liferaft, eventually being rescued by the Japanese where he and his co-pilot were taken captive. He endured two long years of mistreatment, including beatings and cruel punishment. Although he never broke during his captivity, he was a broken man on the inside. After returning to California following the war, he married. To cover his inner pain and memories, including nightmares, he turned to alcohol and in the process almost lost his marriage. It was on the night of October 16th, 1949, that his journey for inner peace ended as he surrendered his life to Jesus Christ at a Billy Grahame Crusade in Los Angeles. Unbroken is a story of God’s redemption!
