Unbroken Movie Preview: The Story of Louis Zamperini

Posted on February 17 2014

My wife has been on my case for months to read Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption. The book, by Laura Hillenbrand (author of Seabiscuit), tells the story of Louis Zamperini, a runner who competed in the 5000m at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin. The book tells the story of his running career as well as his experiences as a soldier during WWII (he was shot down, stranded in a lifeboat, and was taken as a POW by the Japanese). I’ve been meaning to read Unbroken for awhile now, but am a bit ashamed to admit that I’ve become so accustomed to reading books on Kindle that I haven’t overcome the hurdle of my wife’s hardcover paper copy (just bought the Kindle version, so no more excuses!).

Steve Magness just Tweeted a preview of the forthcoming movie that has been adapted from the book (the preview is narrated by Tom Brokaw and aired during coverage of the Winter Olympics). Looks fantastic!
