Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand

This book follows Louis Zamperini from his thieving childhood in Torrance to his time as an Olympic runner to his time as an Air Force bomber and POW in World War Two. His ability to survive some unimaginable physical and mental hardships is truly incredible. I found the final section following his return to civilian life to be particularly meaningful.
