Her book became an Oscar-nominated film. In Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience and Redemption, Hillenbrand delivers another beacon of inspiration.In this summary and analysis, you will read about:•Survival: The book recounts the story of Louie Zamperini, a World War II airman survivor who goes through harrowing combat missions (594 bullet and cannon holes), a crash and, ultimately, being lost at sea with nothing but a raft between him and a painful death at the hands of the enemy or even the jaws of a shark.•Resilience: The eruption of the war interrupts Louie’s Olympic run. This can either destroy or strengthen a man. Louie keeps both feet steady beneath him and keeps running, so to speak, as he faces World War II battles, trauma (his and that of his fellow soldiers), imprisonment in deplorable cells, and torture at the hands of a sadist Japanese solider.•Redemption: Suffering from what is now known as PTSD, Louie becomes an alcoholic and his wife even catches him shaking their infant daughter. But husband and wife find direction in God. Through Billy Graham’s sermons, the former Olympian becomes a Christian motivational speaker himself, and goes to Japan to forgive his former tormentors.FROM START-TO-FINISH IN JUST 20 MINUTES!Heres your chapter-by-chapter guide to Laura Hillenbrands Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience and Redemption that you can start and finish right now!
