Summary
  • The Young Adult Adaptation. On a May afternoon in 1943, an American military plane 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 plane's bombardier, who was struggling to a life raft and pulling himself aboard. So began one of the most extraordinary sagas of the Second World War
  • This adaptation of UNBROKEN tells the story of Olympic runner Louie Zamperini's odyssey during World War II and the courage, cunning, and fortitude he found to endure and overcome. The text contains descriptions of war violence
