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.† It was that of a young lieutenant, the planeís bombardier, who was struggling to a life raft and pulling himself aboard.† So began one of the most extraordinary odysseys of the Second World War.
The lieutenantís name was Louis Zamperini.† In boyhood, heíd been a cunning and incorrigible delinquent, breaking into houses, brawling, and fleeing his home to ride the rails.† As a teenager, he had channeled his defiance into running, discovering a prodigious talent that had carried him to the Berlin Olympics and within sight of the four-minute mile.† But when war had come, the athlete had become an airman, embarking on a journey that led to his doomed flight, a tiny raft, and a drift into the unknown.
Ahead of Zamperini lay thousands of miles of open ocean, leaping sharks, a foundering raft, thirst and starvation, enemy aircraft, and, beyond, a trial even greater.† Driven to the limits of endurance, Zamperini would answer desperation with ingenuity; suffering with hope, resolve, and humor; and brutality with rebellion. His fate, whether triumph or tragedy, would be suspended on the fraying wire of his will.
is an unforgettable story of a manís journey into extremity, It is a testament to the resilience of the human mind, body, and spirit.
Includes CD of programs with Louis Zamperini.
