We now have the new book “Unbroken,” which the movie, that just came out in 2014, is based on. Here is a brief synopsis of what it’s about:

“Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption” is a 2010 non-fiction book by Laura Hillenbrand, author of the best-selling book Seabiscuit: An American Legend (2001). Unbroken is a biography of World War II hero Louis Zamperini, a former Olympic track star who survived a plane crash in the Pacific theater, spent 47 days drifting on a raft, and then survived more than two and a half years as a prisoner of war in several brutal Japanese prisoner-of-war camps.
