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
