Louie’s Olympic dreams were put on hold as he travelled California, training to serve his country. Being that, the equipment Louie was dealing with, wasn’t of stellar quality. Indeed each time Louie’s plane took off, a foreshadowing of the inevitable danger leapt onto the page. On May 27, 1943, Louie’s life was spared as his plane crashed into the ocean, but the blessing quickly became a curse as Louie spent the next forty-seven days trapped on a lifeboat with no food and minimal water. When Louie finally escaped hell on the lifeboat, it is not for the better. Louie spent over two years being shipped around different Japanese war camps, each growing more terrible. Hillenbrand relates Louie’s hardships and makes the readers’ heartache for the trials Louis endured, throughout his time as a prisoner of war in Japan.

Evolving from a man with little knowledge of Christian faith, Louie experiences angelic visitations after vowing to serve the Lord forever, if he could only be saved. “On a fortieth day, Louie was lying beside Phil under the canopy when he abruptly sat up. He could hear singing. He kept listening, it sounded like a choir. He nudged Phil and asked him if he heard anything. Phil said no. Louie slid the canopy off and squinted into the daylight. The ocean is a featureless flatness. In short, unbroken is a fabulous novel conveying the tragic and fantastic story of Louie Zamperini’s unbelievable survival.
