Unbroken

Book: Unbroken

Author: Laura Hillenbrand

Reviewer: Claire Vogeley, Administrative Support Specialist, NCSU Libraries

Completely engaging and almost unbelievable, Unbroken is the true story of Louis Zamperini, an Olympic runner who joined the Army Air Corps during World War II and was eventually imprisoned in a POW camp. Just as she did in Seabiscuit, Laura Hillenbrand transfixes her readers with incredible story telling and impeccable research. Her telling of Louis Zamperini’s remarkable life will stick with you long after the book ends.
