Heroic, Violent and Commemorative
on July 31, 2013
The lifetime of Zamperini was scarred with challenge from his youth until his redemption through the influence of a Christian Church. The story is one of overcoming these challenges as a renegade, a prisoner of war, an alcoholic and eventually a leader.
It is remarkable but the violence and terror as a POw is a difficult read. I would recommend this book to those who have an interest in World War !! as well as those who enjoy reading biographies of resilience and survival
