Just a heads up - if you're not up to reading about brutality and suffering in POW camps, this book might not be for you. That's not to say - in any way - that I didn't enjoy this book. I absolutely did, and I highly recommend it. The story is compelling, the writing brilliant, and the research outstanding. It's an extremely detailed, meticulous account of a true hero: Louis Zamperini.

It's a gripping adventure story all wrapped up in absolutely inspiring storytelling. The subtitle sums it up well: Survival, Resilience and Redemption. Once again, highly recommended reading.
