Biography & Autobiography - Military
This novel focuses on Louis Zamperini, a former Olympic runner training for the upcoming 1940 Olympics. However, as World War II breaks out, Louis becomes an Army Air Force bomber. Unfortunately, his plane crashes, and he is stuck out at sea for days. He is forced to survive vicious attacks, cruel enemies, and most importantly himself.
This book is amazing. I loved it. I am particularly fond of historical fiction/memoirs, and this totally beat every other historical fiction/memoir books I have ever read. I encourage you to read this book. Since reading this book, I am prouder to be an American, and I am forever grateful to men and women like Louis who make EXTREME sacrifices out of the goodness of their hearts for the common stranger.
