Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption - new book

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER The incredible true story of survival and salvation that is the basis for two major motion pictures: 2014´s Unbroken and the upcoming Unbroken: Path to Redemption. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared. It was that of a young lieutenant, the plane´s bombardier, who was struggling to a life raft and pulling himself aboard. So began one of the most extraordinary odysseys of the Second World War. The lieutenant´s name was Louis Zamperini. In boyhood, he´d been a cunning and incorrigible delinquent, breaking into houses, brawling, and fleeing his home to ride the rails. As a teenager, he had channeled his defiance into running, discovering a prodigious talent that had carried him to the Berlin Olympics and within sight of the four-minute mile. But when war had come, the athlete had become an airman, embarking on a journey that led to his doomed flight, a tiny raft, and a drift into the unknown. Ahead of Zamperini lay thousands of miles of open ocean, leaping sharks, a foundering raft, thirst and starvation, enemy aircraft, and, beyond, a trial even greater. Driven to the limits of endurance, Zamperini would answer desperation with ingenuity; suffering with hope, resolve, and humor; brutality with rebellion. His fate, whether triumph or tragedy, would be suspended on the fraying wire of his will. In her long-awaited new book, Laura Hillenbrand writes with the same rich and vivid narrative voice she displayed in Seabiscuit. Telling an unforgettable story of a man´s journey into extremity, Unbroken is a testament to the resilience of the human mind, body, and spirit. Praise for Unbroken ´´Extraordinarily moving . . . a powerfully drawn survival epic.´´-The Wall Street Journal ´´[A] one-in-a-billion story . . . designed to wrench from self-respecting critics all the blurby adjectives we normally try to avoid: It is amazing, unforgettable, gripping, harrowing, chilling, and inspiring.´´-New York ´´Staggering . . . mesmerizing . . . Hillenbrand´s writing is so ferociously cinematic, the events she describes so incredible, you don´t dare take your eyes off the page.´´-People ´´A meticulous, soaring and beautifully written account of an extraordinary life.´´-The Washington Post ´´Ambitious and powerful . . . a startling narrative and an inspirational book.´´-The New York Times Book Review ´´Marvelous . . . Unbroken is wonderful twice over, for the tale it tells and for the way it´s told. . . . It manages maximum velocity with no loss of subtlety.´´-Newsweek ´´Moving and, yes, inspirational . . . [Laura] Hillenbrand´s unforgettable book . . . deserve[s] pride of place alongside the best works of literature that chart the complications and the hard-won triumphs of so-called ordinary Americans and their extraordinary time.´´-Maureen Corrigan, Fresh Air ´´Hillenbrand . . . tells [this] story with cool elegance but at a thrilling sprinter´s pace.´´-Time ´´Unbroken is too much book to hope for: a hellride of a story in the grip of the one writer who can handle it.´´-Christopher McDougall, author of Born to Run A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption Buch (fremdspr.)
