Durham Region libraries are very happy to announce that the 2013 Pass the Book title is 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. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared. So began one of the most extraordinary odysseys of the Second World War. Telling an unforgettable story of Louis Zamperini’s journey from Olympic athlete to the war, Unbroken is a testament to the resilience of the human mind, body, and spirit.
