The #1 New York Times bestseller in hardcover now available for the first time in trade paperback.

Growing up, Louie Zamperini was a study in defiance, but his older brother channeled Zamperini’s energy into track. Within a very short time, his fierce determination took him all the way to the 1936 Olympics. Then his life, like that of his whole generation, was interrupted by Pearl Harbor. Overnight he went from athlete to Army Air Corps bombardier. And that was just the beginning of an incredible odyssey of determination and survival that forced him to draw upon every resource within himself to overcome seemingly insurmountable circumstances.

“Extraordinarily moving…a powerfully drawn survival epic.”The Wall Street Journal
 
“[A] one-in-a-billion story…designed to wrench from self-respecting critics all the blurby adjectives we normally try to avoid: It is amazing, unforgettable, gripping, harrowing, chilling, and inspiring.”—New York
 
“Staggering…mesmerizing…Hillenbrand’s writing is so ferociously cinematic, the events she describes so incredible, you don’t dare take your eyes off the page.”People

“A meticulous, soaring and beautifully written account of an extraordinary life.”—The Washington Post

“Hillenbrand…tells [this] story with cool elegance but at a thrilling sprinter’s pace.”Time
 
Unbroken is too much book to hope for: a hellride of a story in the grip of the one writer who can handle it…. When it comes to courage, charisma, and impossible adventure, few will ever match ‘the boy terror of Torrance,’ and few but the author of Seabiscuit could tell his tale with such humanity and dexterity. Hillenbrand has given us a new national treasure.”—Christopher McDougall, author of Born to Run
 
“Riveting…an exceptional portrait…So haunting and so beautifully written, those who fall under its spell will never again feel the same way about World War II and one of its previously unsung heroes.”—The Columbus Dispatch

“No other author of narrative nonfiction chooses her subjects with greater discrimination or renders them with more discipline and commitment. If storytelling were an Olympic event, [Hillenbrand would] medal for sure.”Salon

“A celebration of gargantuan fortitude…full of unforgettable characters, multi-hanky moments and wild turns…Hillenbrand is a muscular, dynamic storyteller.”The New York Times

“[A] masterfully told true story…nothing less than a marvel.”Washingtonian

“Zamperini’s story is certainly one of the most remarkable survival tales ever recorded. What happened after that is equally remarkable.”—Graydon Carter, Vanity Fair

“Irresistible… Hillenbrand demonstrates a dazzling ability—one Seabiscuit only hinted at—to make the tale leap off the page.”Elle

“A tale of triumph and redemption…astonishingly detailed.”O: The Oprah Magazine

“An astonishing testament to the superhuman power of tenacity.”Entertainment Weekly

“Intense…You better hold onto the reins.”The Boston Globe

“Incredible…Zamperini’s life is one of courage, heroism, humility and unflagging endurance.”St. Louis Post Dispatch

“Hillenbrand has once again brought to life the true story of a forgotten hero, and reminded us how lucky we are to have her, one of our best writers of narrative history. You don’t have to be a sports fan or a war-history buff to devour this book—you just have to love great storytelling.”—Rebecca Skloot, author of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks
