May 28: “Unbroken; a World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption” by Laura Hillenbrand. 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 - Lt. Louis Zamperini. Captured by the Japanese and driven to the limits of endurance, Zamperini would answer desperation with ingenuity and suffering with hope, resolve, and humor.
