About "Don't Give Up, Don't Give in"
Louis Zamperini has lived one of the most amazing lives imaginable. Zamperini was an American Olympic athlete before serving in the Second World War. During the war his plane was shot down, leaving him stranded on a life raft in the middle of the ocean for 47 days. He survived and was rescued by Japanese forces, only to be imprisoned and tortured in a POW camp. Amazingly, Louis survived this ordeal too and went on to help others. Laura Hillenbrand's book about Louis' wartime experiences became a New York Times bestseller and Louis became a worldwide symbol for the power of human resilience. Louis' story is about to be told in a major motion picture directed by Angelina Jolie and set to be released this Christmas. It will be a tale with a universal appeal, a story of inspiration, hope and courage. In Don't Give Up, Don't Give In (timed to coincide with the release of the film), Louis will share the wonderful lessons he has learned during his extraordinary life, previously untold stories and inspirational insights on how he overcame adversity in his life and how to find the courage to never give up and never give in.
