Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Both of my teenage boys beat me to this one, but I finally got around to it. A fantastic read that reminds me of what good war books do: show us man’s darkness and man’s courage. It never ceases to amaze me what a man can endure and what one man can do to another. I also did not realize how brutal the Japanese were to their prisoners. I really enjoyed her sections on how the prisoners kept their humanity by disrupting the Japanese war effort. I wish she had spent more time on his post-conversion years, but other than that a wonderful read.
