  1. Hello,
    My name is Bradliegh Best. I am a sophomore at Kittitas Secondary School. In my English class I am reading Unbroken. I was wondering if Laura would answer a few questions I have about the book and Louie. Please contact me soon.

    Have a wonderful day!
    Bradliegh Best

  2. Praise from a slightly educated hillbilly; I like to read for about one hour after I go to bed, dog-gone you Laura your writing keeps me up longer than I can stand. I never held any belief in reincarnation, but you write as though you’ve lived a few other lifetimes. I also could never accept polygamy, but with my wife’s permission and blessing and your acceptance, I could live with it. You kept me awake last night, from a song, is true for I saw your face in the book that I read.

  6. Hello! I loved Seabiscuit, and have been deeply impacted by Unbroken. Is there a way to directly message Laura here or on her Facebook page?

  7. I have just finished reading ‘Unbroken’. I started reading it two nights ago and have been unable to put it down since! I have a whole library of books covering World War II and I cannot ever recall being so moved by a single book in my entire life. Laura Hillenbrand’s writing style is simply superb and I would like to thank her for capturing Louie Zamperini’s heartbreaking, remarkable and uplifting life story, so vividly. Easily one of the best, if not the best, book I have read in my life. Louie Zamperini’s life is an inspiration to all of us and Laura Hillenbrand’s writing is just superb.

    think you are a professional in this subject. Well with your permission allow
    me to grab your feed to stay up to date with approaching post.
    Thank you one million and please continue the enjoyable work.

  10. We have an opportunity for Laura to write about a young girl who overcame adversity and became a trailblazer, long before her time in the late 1800′s and early 1900′s. This could be a story as an inspiration for young girls to become more than what they think they could through faith and determination. Is there a way to contact Laura personally? Thank you very much.

  19. BEST WAY TO HAVE GOOD AMOUNT TO START A GOOD BUSINESS or TO START LIVING A GOOD LIFE…..I was so confused and into severe poverty about a month ago. I was just going through some blog online when I met a testimony of this BLANK ATM CARD made by WISDOMTECH of email address: ; I contacted that very address and I got one at an imaginable rate.(compared to what the card carries,the rate is minimal) At first I thought,it was gonna be some scam or something. But when I got the card I could get nothing less that £30,000 in a day. (Thirty thousand pounds). Here is testimony I saw; “Its the programmed ATM card that can hack into all ATM machines. Its works with any currency and in any country where you might be living. Its is programmed in a way that when transaction is carried out with the card ,it can’t be traced. To make use of this card ,you need no account number or even pin of anyone. Its simple because there is a manual attatched that teaches usage ,and also give more explanation concerning the card.” So friends,its a new year and a new beginning. If you need funds to start up some business or money to live a good life? Then you gat to make this opportunity yours. Though is illegal as you and I know ,but since government can’t satisfy my whole needs, I have to do what I have to do,to get what I want and for my family to be happy..Though this post is not for everybody,but for those who truly need change from a poor state to a wealthy life. A way to say happy new year to you and you out there. The email address once more is ; Much love From me .

  22. The $20 you found on the street, the poor reviews you got on your work performance,
    the present you received from your friend. In the book Acre of Diamonds by Russell Conwell mentions
    this very thing about those that walk away from success when they
    already have it, totally unaware or taking their focus off of what they have
    and putting it somewhere else. The more you pay attention to how you feel about things,
    the more you practice listening to your intuition and noticing
    coincidences, the better you’ll get at this.

  28. Dear Laura,
    I just read “Unbroken” and I was amazed and overwhelmed. The energy you put into this project must have been incredible and you succeeded in more-than-honoring those who served in the greatest of wars. The Apostle Paul wrote in Romans 13:7 that we should give “honor to whom honor is due” and you did this. In fact, might I be so bold to say that God raised you up for this very purpose, that you should show his glory in the midst of such suffering. My prayer would be that just as Louie found forgiveness and peace by putting his trust in Jesus, that you too, if you have not already, receive Jesus to be your Lord and Savior. Thank you for showing the goodness of God amidst the horrors of war.

  30. Ms. Hillenbrand,

    Given the number of solicitations, inappropriate messages and spam you receive on this guestbook I’m a bit hesitant to post but I cannot find another way to reach you.

    I too was diagnosed with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis about 5 years ago…though I have had my “sudden illness” for about 15. While I am highly impressed with your work unto itself, I am even more so given the steps to which you have had to go to complete it.

    I feel a certain kinship with you because I too am trying to accomplish something under the trying circumstances that come with this condition. While in a spell of relative health about 10 years ago, following my first “attack” and near recovery, I decided to apply to graduate school. I had always been a busy person, worked full time, volunteered, written, etc…up to the first time I got sick but following the first episode I realized I wanted to do something more, something more significant.

    I completed a M.A. in Philosophy and then applied to and was accepted to Ph.D. program with a full teaching assistantship. I was generally okay the first two years…other than having to spend most of the summer months resting to recover..but midway through my third year’s fall semester…I began to slowly, and then all at once, become ill once again. I collapsed while teaching, went home and spent the next 9 months in my house.

    I never fully recovered but due to a cooperative and compassionate committee…I have been able to continue working, albeit at a much slower pace.

    I unfortunately had another major relapse over the last year and had to spend another 8 months in my home, primarily in bed with loss of much of my cognitive function to that oh so special “brain fog”, losing this time.

    I am at present trying to continue writing my dissertation. I am currently halfway through having completed my second chapter just prior to collapsing last fall.

    When I’ve read accounts of you, and your process, I’ve come to appreciate the way in which you get things done…and the steps you take in order to do the work you want to do.

    I want to thank you, not for being simply an inspiration – though you certainly are that – because that is cliched, for providing a blueprint on how to proceed under these conditions.

    I would love to hear from you if ever you have time.

    Best of luck in the future.

  31. Just finished reading Unbroken. The life of Louis Zamperini should be an inspiration to all and should be required reading for all high school students. Laura has such a gift of reducing facts to writing that it is almost like you are living Louis’ remarkable life right along side him. Laura, thank you so much for telling this remarkable man’s story.

  32. В наше время очень нелегко найти для просмотра хорошее кино и подарить для себя ярких воспоминаний на будущее. Сегодня с помощью глобальной сети есть хорошая возможность посетить подыскать что-то интересное. Уже не нужно бежать в кинопрокат. Теперь у каждого есть возможность смотреть свои любимые фильмы прямо у себя дома. Этот веб-сайт – лучший кинотеатров глобальной паутины. На страницах сайта можно найти для приятного вечера новый фильм и насладиться его просмотром. Модерн и кино – далеко не пустые слова, ведь многие из нас нередко предпочитают смотреть новинки кино.

    Все люди разные, конечно же, у любого человека есть свои предпочтения в кино. Сложно найти человека, кто бы не любил сериалы и не наслаждался порой интересным сюжетом из новых историй, рассказанных известными создателями. Кто-то любит смотреть комедии, кому-то ближе по душе детективные истории, а другие жить не могут без боевиков с захватывающим сюжетом. Также большинство из насделятся на любителей кино или увлекательных сериалов.

    Взгляд на киноискусство, как известно у каждого свой. Любовь и предпочтения к отдельному жанру есть не что другое как проявление характера самого человека. На сегодняшний день у каждого взрослого человека, понятно, есть свои предпочтения в мире кино и это вполне нормально. Но большое количество людей предпочитает смотреть новые фильмы и забывает о том кино, на котором все мы выросли, что не может оставлять равнодушным.

    Наряду с новинками кино старые киноленты могут тоже похвастаться увлекательными историями и надолго оставаться в нашем сознании. Быть истинным любителем кино не трудно, главное доверять своим предпочтениям и смотреть и наслаждаться новыми и старыми фильмами!

  33. Dear Laura, I have just finished your most moving account about Louie Zamperini, UNBROKEN. My father was a WW11 veteran and chose not to share many of the atrocities of this war. It was very near his death that we learned he was on the beaches of Normandy. I personally cannot thank you enough for sharing this moving story….it brought me such understanding and closure concerning just how horrible this war really was regarding the Japanese treatment of POW’s. Ironically I write this on 9/11 as we remember the horrible events of that day. My daughter worked and lived near the Pentagon and that day is burned into my mind for the rest of my life.
    We have a wonderful community library in Williamsport PA which has had to make up a large amount of state funding. Each year they hold an author gala which serves as their major fund raiser..I often give them names of authors whose stories have touched me personally such as yours. I cannot imagine having to share this story with the many people you interviewed..I am sure there were days that you felt you were living the story. I personally cannot thank you enough for your persistence and depth of research in telling this story. I do not know if you do speaking engagements or what your fee might be.
    I would love to be able to share your name with our library…if you could send me information I would so appreciate it…it is time that this story is shared again and again and again until people learn what their family members had to endure…it is a piece of history that is sorely missing from our curriculum in studying the war.
    You may use the email address above…again thank you…Caryn Powers, Williamsport, PA 17701

  34. Hello Every One, I am Mrs Emily Logan From Texas U.S.A, I
    quickly want to use this medium to shear a testimony on
    how God directed me to a Legit and real loan lender who
    have transformed my life from grass to grace, from being
    poor to a rich woman who can now boast of a healthy and
    wealthy life without stress or financial difficulties. After so
    many months of trying to get a loan on the internet and was
    scammed the sum of $5,200 i became so desperate in
    getting a loan from a legit loan lender online who will not
    add to my pains, then i decided to contact a friend of mine
    who recently got a loan online, we discussed about the
    issue and to our conclusion she told me about a man called
    So i applied for a loan sum of(320,000.00USD) with low interest rate of 2%, so the
    was approved easily without stress and all the preparations
    where made concerning the loan transfer and in less than
    two(2) days the loan was deposited into my bank so i want
    to advice any one in need of a loan to quickly contact him
    via: ( he does not
    know am doing this i pray that God will bless him for the
    good things he has done in my life.

  35. Dear Laura,

    I am a transfer student from Los Angeles City College. I am planning to apply to Kenyon College for Fall 2016. I am a Sociology major with a growing interest in Computer Science (odd pair I know). I was delighted to find out you also attended Kenyon College. I couldn’t not say hello.

    I invite you to look at my website as I decided to illustrate my story in, say, doodle form.

  36. An interesting discussion is worth a comment. I believe that you must write extra on this matter, it might not be a taboo subject however generally individuals are not brave enough to talk on such topics. To the next. Cheers

  45. Am 77 years old and always have been interested in WWII having read countless books on it. Just finished “Unbroken” First time I have read a book with tears in my eyes. The healing end was so very good. Extremely well written. Tell Laura she did a wonderful job of bringing the story to Life….I was with Louie the whole time feeling what he felt as well as his healing.
    Thanks, Dave

  46. My father, Robert Borden was a B26 bombardier pilot during WWII, flying more than 60 missions over Italy. He very rarely spoke of the war. Only after reading Unbroken, did I begin to understand the trauma he suffered and the aftermath. He was successful in business but emotionally distant with family. I wish he had lived to read the book, but he died in 2008 age 90. He gave me a photo before his death, that was taken by the photographer on his plane of the plane next to him in formation that had been hit, engine falling from to the ground. The plane went down. I knew them all he said.
    Thank you for bringing so much of their history to light with Louis Zamperini’s incredible story. Betsey Borden

  67. Finished Unbroken a couple weeks ago and haven’t been able to stop thinking about it since. I had been waiting to read it, and I wished I read it earlier! What a beautiful, beautiful story and what a privilege it must have been for you to get the first hand account. I started reading it for the running story, but that was the just the tip of the iceberg. Louis really lived three lifetimes in one! He must have been incredible to talk to. What a guy…

    The history surrounding all of the events were so well described. The detail and emotion conveyed is just amazing. I consider myself to be pretty history-illiterate, to my shame. This was such an eye-opener to what these men endured between the fear of flying in “lemon” aircraft and being tortured to the extent that they were. Coupled with the intersection with what was happening in America with the Billy Graham meetings, it’s caused me to dig in more into what was happening during this period after the war.

    Thank you so much for your EXTREME diligence and persevering through the writing of this book. This is the most meaningful book I’ve read in a LONG time. It really has caused me to be grateful for all I have, including my redemption though Jesus Christ.

    May the Lord richly bless you and your family.

  87. Thank you and God bless you, Laura, for taking this post war spoiled brat into the life of one man, representing millions who gave so much at such great cost. There is another story, initially brought to light by the book, “God’s Samurai”, as well as a recent self-published book, “Wounded Tiger”, that also is a powerful and compelling story. It’s the story of one who led the attack on Pearl Harbor and one who sought revenge. Woven between is the life of a daughter of missionaries in the Pacific, that she later discovers were killed by the Japanese. And, like Louie’s amazing story, it is a true story- a story of God’s amazing grace and healing in a war- torn world. You may already be aware of Martin Bennet’s “Wounded Tiger” but it would be wonderful if you could offer him some encouragement
    and advice for getting this true story out into a wider audience- particularly as a film.

    Your book was so powerfully written- you made it all very real… You hit the target!! Thank you so much.

My wife left me since October 2014 after a little misunderstanding. I have never heard from her since then because she changed her number. I contacted doc elive last week Tuesday and i explained to him and he assured me that she will come back to me. After the third day, she came back home begging me and We are back and in good terms now. He is truthful and straight forward. His email address is ( ) His cell number is 2348136125903 Thank you so much again, i will also look for a way to talk about you on News Paper because you are powerful.

  93. Привет! Я тут новенький!

  94. Just finished reading Seabiscuit, I had to after reading Unbroken. Thanks for telling that story as well. I suffered a cervical herniated disc 14 months ago and have felt discouraged at times, I was an avid runner before but have had to give it up. I experience pain every day. But hey, suffering is essential for personal growth, and I see that in both Louie and Red’s life. The perseverance aspect is always compelling, and for your physical struggles as well Laura. Who knows?, someone may tell your story some day. Of course, I guess that won’t be till about the year 2100 at the rate of your two books, ha! Can’t wait to read your next project!

  95. Dear Laura,

    Do you know if “Unbroken” will be translated into Russian language?
    Russia has a huge WWII literature fan base but similarly to your comments, most learn and read about the war in Europe and little is known about the war in the Pacific! I enjoyed your book so much and want to share with family and friends in Russia but can not find the translation – is there anything one can do to “vote” for the Russian version?
    The true stories of such courageous men as Louie and his family and Allen and Bill Harris and others inspire to be a better person and hopefully will keep inspiring future generations. It’s so sad to know what after all these years the family of Bill Harris still are not sure about his fate amd his remains.
    Thank you for writing this history!
    Please let me know if somehow I can find a copy in Russian!? Thank you, Anya.

  96. Hi Laura,
    After reading your book and the “a conversation with…” section I want to say Bravo and well done on takling such a huge topic in your condition. I had a friend in high school who had ME/CFS and I couldn’t understand why she was always in bed. She had a good nights sleep for crying out loud!

    Thanks also for explaining the true nature of POW life in Japan during WWII . A real eye opener. The Pacific War is much in our culture here in Australia. I fly B737 for a major Australian airline and as much as I moan about fatigue at least no-one is trying to shoot me down!

    And finally thanks for reintroducing the joy of reading a good book again. I used to read a lot when I was a kid but now with the fast life we lead and tv and internet, not so much. What a great read – I kept asking myself “what’s going to happen next?”

    I wish you all the best for your future.


  97. Useful information. Lucky me I discovered your website by chance, and I’m surprised why this
    accident did not happened in advance! I bookmarked it.

  98. Dear Ms. Hillenbrand

    I know you hear this all the time, but “Unbroken” truly is incredible. While reading the terrible horrors Mr.Zamperini endured, I knew that if this story should end in his forgiving his enemies it would only be through the power of our dear Lord Jesus.I want to thank you for not trying to conceal his conversion to the Christian faith. I am surprised at the lengthy time period the book was on the New York Times bestselling list, considering the fact that you so thoroughly portrayed the reason Mr.Zamperini could forgive. Most people today do not care to believe that true forgiveness can only be possible for a person through the power of a living God. I was thrilled to read that all those horrible nightmares and flashbacks and the alcoholism miraculously left Mr.Zamperini the moment he put his faith in Jesus Christ!

    God bless you
    Sophia Lilford-Powys

  99. Thanks for the share!

  100. I loved both of the books, I admire your tenacity to complete these exhaustively documented books, and hope that Laura will be able to provide us another book in the future. Best Wishes

  101. hey Mr.Kathie thank you sir
    i contacted them via web and they really saved my hungry ass and provided funds for my new business. im grateful like fuck.


  102. Dear Laura,
    I just finished Unbroken after an approximate three day (whenever I could read. I’m a mother of two, teacher on summer vacation) book coma/marathon! After a friend saw the movie, I wanted to see it. Usually I like to read books before seeing the films, but didn’t think of doing that this time. Thankfully, I haven’t seen the movie yet and came across a copy of the book a few days ago. I so desperately want to find someone else who has read it, so we can discuss it. Thank you for writing the book and bringing history to life. Normally, I read fiction, but occasionally I read autobiographies and or non-fiction novelly type books such as Hot Zone and My Life and the Beautiful Game. I haven’t read a horse book since my preteen/teen years and believe me I read them all. Seabiscuit, the movie and/or the book never appealed to me before. Now, it is the next book I will be looking for on my next book store trip. The way you write is very readable for me and I’m sure I will enjoy reading Seabiscuit as I did Unbroken. Please forgive my grammatical errors as I am overflowing with enthusiasm and trying to get this done before I procrastinate and don’t send anything. I plan to share the book, excerpts and the young adult version with my students this coming school year. I am a Social Studies teacher and I love to incorporate literature into my lessons. Unbroken will be something I can share with the students to spark an interest in history that sometimes seems dull to teenagers. Colleagues have shown the movie to students and I probably will as well, but not before previewing it with reading and writing from the book. I’m sure you’ve been told you’ve given people goosebumps before, but I have to say that I got goosebumps at the end of the book. You are as inspiring as Louie given your illness and perseverance to complete such a monumental task as this book. I just can’t say enough to express my gratitude to you for writing such a work of art and my joy at being able to experience your art. I am a better person after reading the book and am probably going to pester every one I know to read the book!
    PS The above is unedited stream of consciousness writing.

  104. I rarely leave comments, but after finishing Unbroken I felt that I must. Your book is so beautifully written that I believe it may be the best book that I have ever read. At 57 years of age I have read more books than I can remember, but I will not forget this one.

    Through your words I feel I know Louis, and I aspire to be a better person for it.

    Kind regards,

  106. My husband and I are reading “Unbroken”. Imagine my shock when I came to page 182 and the second sentence contained my uncle’s name. Our family has looked for years to have some sort of clue to Alden Mattison’s demise. Now it looks as though he may have been beheaded on Kwajalein. Can you direct me to any information or resources that will confirm this? For years we thought ALden was lost at sea.

  107. I would be grateful if you could forward my comments to Laura:
    My father, a New Zealand coast Watcher, was a POW in Zentsuji camp. In fact he was among a group of NZ coast watchers who were the 1st POW’s to arrive in Japan (Jan 6th 1942.)17 of his comrades were beheaded at Tarawa on Oct 15 1942 (the next day on Kwajalein 9 US Marines were similarly executed – I have done extensive research and believe that the two events were linked.)

    It was Louis’ surviving crew, Fred Garrett, who told my father what had happened to his 17 fellow coast watchers who were part of the Gilbert Island Coastwatchers Group along with my father.

    I went to the Gilbert Islands in 2002 and Japan in 2012. When in Japan I went to the site of Ofuna camp. There I met an old lady who had not only seen Louis’ race against the Japanese guard, but also she had original drawings of the event (And other events)done by her brother who had been extremely traumatised by the war.
    If you are interested I can send you copies of these. I only had my camera and photographed them, but they came out reasonable well.
    Her home bordered the Ofuna camp (It is the same plot of land that the family still lives on.) When I was there (with the help of some Japanese who were guiding me)we arranged for the last remnants of the camp (a concrete support for the Guard house at the entrance) to be given to a local temple where the priest was only too happy to preserve such an object in honour of those who suffered at that POW camp.
    My contact details are above if you wish to take this further.
    All the best,
    Kevin Menzies

  108. When I heard about the movie in 2014, I didnot go to see it, but the tag line stayed with me. I read ithe e book from my local library and was drawn into the story within the first few pages. It has reaffirmed my belief in a higher power, to see that someone could remember and fulfill a promise made to God during a difficult period in their life. I will purchase a hard copy for my own home library . I then read the authors own health difficulty. What an amazing woman to have completed this incredible work. We need more writers and researchers to bring these stories to us . Thank you thank you Laura,

  109. How could I have lived 67 years and not have known about this courageous man? An inspiring story of bravery at its best!

  125. Hello Everyone, I am Celina Wheels a single mom from California USA, will like to share this great testimony on how i got my loan from Gordy’s Loans when we were driven out of our home when i couldn’t pay my bills anymore, After been scammed by various companies online and denied a loan by my bank and other some other credit union i visited. my children were taken by the foster care, i was all alone in the street. Until a day i shamefully walked into an old school mate who introduced me to Gordy’s Loans. At first i told her that i am not ready to take any risk of requesting a loan online anymore, but she assured me that i will received my loan from them. On a second thought i took due to my homelessness i took a trial and applied for the loan, luckily for me i received a loan of $50,000.00 from ( Am happy i took the risk and applied for the loan. my kids have been given back to me and now i own a home and a business of my own. All gratitude goes to Gordy’s loans for giving a meaning to my life when i had lost all hope. You can also reach them at: (864) 509-9524 or (44) 703-195-0947 and transform your life.

  126. Ms. Hildenbrand:
    Thank you for a truly remarkable book and movie. I’m 67yrs old and at age fourteen, I traded a stamp collection for a number of WWII books. I read them and then gave them away. In the years following, I read more books about the war and was struck by how newer novels did not seem to accurately cover the brutality of the Japanese in comparison to what I had read earlier. Not until the PBS series on WWII by Ken Burns had I seen anything close to what I believe to be accurate. As a contrast, German brutality seemed to be well depicted. Your description of the B-24 coincides with that of Stephen Ambrose in The Wild Blue.
    Again, thank you.

  127. Siapa Umar Abduh…?


    Sering kita temui nama ini di media sosial, situs berita online, termasuk youtube.

    Nama umar abduh ini dikesankan sebagai (mantan) pengikut jamaah Imran yang terkenal dengan kasus pembajakan woyla (Maret 1981).

    Namun, berdasarkan dokumen yang ada tentang jamaah Imran ini, tidak ada nama umar abduh di sana.

    Umar abduh adalah sosok kelahiran mojokerto. Pada struktur organisasi jamaah Imran, disebutkan bahwa pemuka Jamaah Imran di mojokerto bernama m. amin umar.

    Apakah nama m. amin umar ini merupakan sosok yang sama dengan sosok yang kini bernama umar abduh?

    Pada blog pribadinya umar abduh mencantumkan bahwa ia menempuh pendidikan sejak sekolah dasar hingga SMA di mojokerto.

    Jadi, ia sama sekali tidak pernah menempuh pendidikan keagamaan apapun di tingkat sekolah dasar hingga SMA.

    Selain tidak pernah menempuh pendidikan keagamaan, umar abduh juga tidakpernah menempuh pendidikan di atas SMA.

    Yang menjadi pertanyaan, siapa yang menobatkan umar abduh sebagai “ustad” dan atau “pengamat intelijen” sebagaimana sering dikutip media online tertentu?

    Identitas sosok ini meragukan, seperti sejumlah pernyataannya di media sosial dan media online yang juga meragukan.

    9 fakta tentang umar abduh

    1) Nama aslinya amin
    2) Lahir di mojokerto (jatim)
    3) Sekolah sampai sma saja
    4) Tidak pernah masuk pesantren
    5) Tidak pernah kuliah
    6) Pernah memfasilitasi al chaidar membuka komunikasi negosiasi dengan teroris bernama noordin m superb, sekitar lima hari sebelum doktor azahari tertembak di batu, malang, jawa timur
    7) Umar abduh pernah menjadi anak buahnya jumhur hidayat (saat jumhur menjabat sebagai kepala BNP2TKI)
    8) Umar abduh berkawan akrab dengan teman-temannya di Cedsos yang merupakan aktivis sosialis-kiri pimpinan john mempy
    9) Gaya bahasa lisan dan tulisan umar abduh mirip vicky prasetyo yang terkenal dengan “konspirasi kemakmuran” dan “konspirasi hati”

  132. Seabiscuit and unbroken were masterpieces. Movie version of unbroken was terribly disappointing. Missed the message which was forgiveness. Gull on head happened somewhere else. Laura, you have enough money. Don’t fall for the hollywood hype.

  133. Język nieposkromiony wywodzi się z języka praindoeuropejskiego, przodka języka indoeuropejskiego,
    którego używała jednostka podziału terytorialnego indoeuropejska. Wraz odtąd tym kiedy całokształt prasłowiański migrował,
    wspólnota się rozpadała w takim razie tym samym zmieniał się w dodatku ich proces organiczny językowy.

    Do odłamu zachodniego należy kałdun czeski, słowacki, górno więc dolnołużycki zaś polski.
    Wykształtował on sobie wspólne cechy rozwojowe, pod względem fonetycznym, leksykalnym czy
    gramatycznym. Z tym, że ktokolwiek kałdun był reprezentatywny toteż odrębny, dlatego pył swoje własne cechy. Język
    polski ukształtował się w takim razie opodal VII w. n.e. od tego czasu naprawdę zwanej grupy lechickiej, która obejmowała
    pewne dialektyczne warianty.

    Początek łączenia się plemion lechickich do wnętrza drugiej połowie IX w. dlatego powstania państwa
    polskiego, pomógł ku wnętrzu ustaleniu się jednolitego języka na tym obszarze. Jednak teraz od tego czasu początku
    swego rozwoju, brzusio rozwydrzony nie był mężny na wpływy obce zatem przejmował wyrazy obce, podczas gdy i
    różne formy leksykalne azali fonetyczne.

    Chodzi o zapożyczenia, które powstały w tej chwili ku wnętrzu okresie najstarszej polszczyzny. Do wzbogacania
    języka dochodziło poprzez przejmowanie wyrazów obcych, które mianowały nową temat czy
    rzeczywistość. Albo poprzez wpływanie na zmianę w tym momencie istniejących wyrazów.

    Proces zapożyczania wyrazów odtąd języków obcych niepokoić przebiegał dlatego przebiega w środku każdym okresie rozwoju
    i istnienia języka, na co miały siła wydarzenia historyczne. W stosunki z powodu sytuacji
    politycznej czy też mody na dowolny żyła bądź kontaktów kulturalnych czy również ekonomicznych,
    zapożyczano wyrazy według poszczególnych języków.

    W swojej pracy zajmuję się zapożyczeniami, występującymi w czasopismach o tematyce medycznej.
    Pierwsza poświadczenie jest poświęcona klasyfikacji zapożyczeń od różnych kryteriów. Drugą część
    pracy poświęciłam analizie konkretnych zapożyczeń w środku wybranych tekstach z czasopism. Celem
    mojej pracy jest stwierdzić, azali istnieją wyraźne różnice między ilością zapożyczeń deptać po odciskach w
    artykułach o tej samej tematyce ku wnętrzu trzech różnych rodzajach czasopism: ku wnętrzu czasopismach fachowych
    dla lekarzy zatem farmaceutów, w czasopismach dla pacjentów aptek dlatego ku wnętrzu czasopismach popularnych.

    Definicję zapożyczeń podaje Nowy księga poprawnej polszczyzny przeto brzmi ona Zapożyczenia to
    obce ku wnętrzu strukturze danego języka wyrazy, zwroty, typy derywatów, formy fleksyjne, konstrukcje
    składniowe, związki frazeologiczne. Powszechnie przyjęta pogrupowanie zapożyczeń jest oparta
    na trzech kryteriach: przedmiotu zapożyczenia, pochodzenia i stopnia

    Najczęściej uwzględniana klasyfikacja zapożyczeń jest oparta na trzech kryteriach,
    wymienionych w tej chwili wcześniej, zaś to: reguła przedmiotu zapożyczenia, reguła stopnia
    pochodzenia w takim razie dogmat pochodzenia. Niżej zajmuję się każdym od nich z powodu osobna.

  136. Hello,I have been talking to a friend of mine about your work with hemp oil and all of the health benefits that come with taking it. I almost have her convinced to try it but she wanted me to check and see if you have ever treated anyone that had Juvenile diabetes? Also a friend of mine here in N.B. has been taking the oil for approx 2.5 months now as a cancer treatment and he is doing great. He says that he is feeling perfect and that he can’t remember feeling this good for a long time and he has absolutely NO PAIN.
    Also a 19 year old boy from the community that has cancer just started taking the oil. He had been in bed for 3 days previous to taking the oil and had not been eating much of anything and was in a lot of pain and discomfort. The remarkable thing is that approx 20 minutes after taking a dose of the oil he got out of bed and walked out to the kitchen and asked for something to eat. Also that night he slept through the entire night and did not have to get up to take his pain medication. This is truly remarkable. On behalf of these 2 people and their families I thank you. And may God bless you all for your remarkable work. you can contact the foundation with this

    У меня беда, купили с мужем дачу за городом с участком 12 соток
    Вообщем дача примерно 70-х годов постройки, не очень новенькая )).
    Мы немного ее отреставрировали, но тут столкнулись с проблемой – в доме живут грызуны и тараканы, а в сарае мыши и крысы, я их пристально не рассматривала ).
    Мы вызывали службу которая травит эту нечисть, сначала помогло, но через месяц опять покусаные обои в доме и например если в кухне на ночь оставить бутерброд с сыром
    то к утру от еды ничего не останется ).

    В сарае раскидывали средство Крысиная смерть, эту смерть успешно сожрали, но судя по постоянным шорохам в сарае это не помогло. Дочь даже боиться туда ходить
    Я уже незнаю что делать, третий месяц уже с этим боремся, но пока безуспешно, разве что тараканов в доме по меньше стало.

    Подскажите как побороть эту нечисть ?
    Может фирмы нормальные есть которые травят или яды какието по сильнее Крысиной смерти ?
    Заранее спасибо
    с уважением Катерина.

  165. To Laura, your husband, and to all of the contributing members of your team,

    I would like to express my deepest appreciate to you and this book. By far, one of the best books I’ve read in years. (and I read a lot). This book had me welling up with tears with what these brave men and their families had to endure. It also left me with an overwhelming sense of gratitude to live in the United States of America, the greatest country in the world.

    This is the first time that I’ve ever felt compelled to reach out to an author and thank them for their work, but the two stories that have had the most impact on me have been yours. I’ve read Seabiscuit and watched the movie more than a dozen times. I’ve read Unbroken and watched that movie as well. These stories have stoked a fire within me to continue on my path of making a difference in this world, never to give up, to dig deeper, to be resilient in the face of adversity, and that pain temporarily endured can and will leave with it, a lifetime of glory and be a lasting service to humanity.

    On this 4th of July, 2015, I wish you and your family a very happy independence day that we can all enjoy thanks to the brave men and women who serve our country faithfully and with great sacrifice.

    Sincere regards,

    Jason P. Shockey

  166. Laura, I cried through most of your book. Growing up, I at first feared, then came to love and feel great sympathy for my mother’s brother Tony. He was captured on Bataan and endured the death march, the last 7 miles carrying one of his buddies who stayed in touch with my mother through the 1980s. Tony returned home and married per his mother’s wishes only to suffer what was then called a “nervous breakdown” about 10 months later. He never saw the child he fathered, lived at Oak Knoll Military Hospital in California for about 10 years when he began to recover and my mother brought him to live with us, but he regressed, and my grandmother made his life a living hell. He never recovered, and he died in his 80s living with my oppressive grandmother. My mother tried so hard to help him. He’d been her baby brother and the gentlest of men. Your book brought back all that sadness and my mother’s feelings of absolute failure that she couldn’t save him. You left me with feelings of weakness as a Christian and anger at our government for their selling out of our men. And it seems it continues in the wars of the rest of the 20th and 21st century. Thank you.

I live in Canada,i want to use this medium to alert all loan seekers to be very careful because there are scammers everywhere.few weeks ago I was financially strained, and due to my desperation I was scammed by several online lenders.

  173. Hi, This is for Laura or whoever maintains this site. She included a beautiful testimony on Facebook and I’m hoping it would be available to everyone on one of Laura’s sites. I have been ill with ME/CFS & fibro for over 30 years and have followed her writing career. I’m editor of a support group newsletter and would like to put a link to that testimony from Laura in a future newsletter but not everyone uses Facebook. Would that be possible? Thanking you in advance, Nancy

  174. For Ms. Hillenbrand: I LOVE your work. It is such a great experience to read the stories you bring to life so beautifully. I have a suggestion for a possible subject for you….Marie-Joseph Paul Yves Roch Gilbert du Motier de Lafayette is a “rock star” of the American and French revolutions and as handsome and charismatic as any Hollywood producer could want…the story of his life is truly compelling and viewing our own revolutionary days through his eyes is an “untold” and underappreciated addition to our own history. I grew up as the daughter in an Air Force family and lived in “Lafayette Village” in Fayetteville NC and even there my history teachers couldn’t tell me much about this extraordinary person, so I began to do my own investigation and I am still pretty captivated by his life. At any rate, I think he deserves a very good biographer and I think you could do the subject justice, Sincerely, Vonna Viglione

  175. Thank you for your exciting and enlightening books. I greatly enjoy them.

    For a future book, how about writing about John Chapman (Johnny Appleseed)? His story is complex and interesting. To my knowledge, not much has been written about this American legend. An insightful truth needs to be told.

    where can i do it please assist.

  179. I have just finished reading Unbroken. My husband and I saw the movie when it was released and I wanted to know more. I am so thankful to Laura for writing this epic story. I learned so much about what our POWs suffered during the Pacific war and I am so saddened that more has not been written about these so very unsung men. My father serviced in the Army in the Pacific and had very little to say about his experiences so I never really understood the huge suffering and difficulties these men experienced during their war years. I was shocked by some of what I read and find it hard to understand why so little has been written over the years. I hope more can be done to bring to light the history and stories of that time but understand that too many of those men are now gone. My most profound thanks to Laura and I will be sure to recommend this book to so many of my generation.

  184. Hi.. I plan on making a short film about Louie’s letter at the radio station.. I copied it down handwritten and then typed it on google docs.. Keep in mind, I copied it word for word from the book. I want to give the film more detail of the book, so that’s why I copied it word for word.. I was going to ask if I could have permission from Laura Hillenbrand or her associates to use the scene almost completely word for word for accuracy.

  185. I am angel marcus from Georgia state in savannah city over here in the United State Of America but i reside in Finland . I am aware of the fact that there are no real loans online and this was why i stayed clear off getting a loan online because my friends and family members who had financial problems at some points back then and relied on online loans where all disappointed as they were scammed by those who pose to be real loan lenders online and as a result i was able to learn a lesson from other people”s experience . I knew that if I was unable to make a great savings i will also fall back to this category of loan seekers but unfortunately for me , i fell in love online and never knew that it was all a scam from the Africa continent as i was deceived by this guy and i continued to send all that i saved up all my life to him and this ran up to about $24k dollars and it was just $3k dollars left in my account before i found out about his true identity and when all this had happened i wanted to commit suicide because i already fell for him and also i already spent alot due to his fake promises , due to all this issues i ran into debts as i could not longer service my expenses as i used to and latter on i had a bad credit that could not allow me to borrow from the bank over here in Finland and as a result ,i had to go online in search of a loan and i came across a company and i applied with them but to my surprise i was scammed about 2k Dollars from the among i had left and this made me to be devastated and never knew who to trust anymore and this was based especially on online loan deals and online dating romance but as things began to worse i searched again and i found out about this loan agency by name WILLIAMS FRED LOANS and i communicated with them via this email :( but latter backed out and i told a friend about the ongoing transaction and she told me to discontinue that they would hit me with late fees, penalties, and finally scam me off all that i have but i remembered that i had nothing anymore to be scammed and i made up mind to continue and as God would have it i was approved of a loan amount of $50 ,000.00 United States dollars for the time frame of 10years and this was the reason why i decided to advertise about how God used this great man , a great loan lender to transform my situation and you can reach them through this contact information just incase you are interested in getting a real loan too ,,, Williams fred loans My private email is

  186. Dear Miss Hillenbrand,

    My name is ***** ****** and I am 14 years old. I live in The Hague which is a city in the European country: The Netherlands. I am writing to you because of the beautiful biography you made about Louis Silvie Zamperini Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption. I have some questions for you and I would really appreciate it if you’ve got time to answer them for me as Louis Zamperini unfortunately can’t.
    Next week Tuesday it has already been a year of Mr. Zamperini’s passing. If I didn’t had to hand in this letter to you as a school project tomorrow, I would have sent it to you on July 2nd (just because of the symbolic reason). The fact that he was so blessed to reach an age of 97 warms my heart but I am also sad because now all my questions will forever be unanswered and my thoughts will forever be filled with ‘what ifs’.
    I have a lot of respect for Mr. Zamperini. Not only because he survived 47 days on a life raft in the middle of the sea whereupon he became a POW in Japan, where he was targeted by a malevolent, violent commander named Mutsuhiro “the Bird” Watanabe. But also because he was so incredibly courageous to share his story with the rest of the world while having Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and nightmares about the Japanese prison camp that caused him to have a drinking problem. I find it amazing that all his flashbacks, nightmares etc. stopped when he started to pray to God and became Christian. Even though he went through all of this, he still went back to Japan to forgive almost all of the prison guards that tortured him except for… ‘The Bird’ which saddens me. How can a person be so brutal to abuse someone so bad but not be brave enough to face him when he wants to forgive and closure all of it years later?
    Mr. Zamperini inspires me a lot. This is because he was so strong and never gave up. Even when ‘The Bird’ ordered him to lift a heavy wooden beam above his head and threatened him by saying that if he dropped the beam he would kill Mr. Zamperini, he never gave up. Does Louis Zamperini inspire u to? Which other people inspire you and why?
    What I really didn’t expect from Louis Zamperini was that he always got himself into trouble in his youth and that he started smoking and drinking at really young ages. He still became 97 years old though!!! My question to you is; what did you not expect from Louis Zamperini?
    Something what shocked me during reading and researching was getting to know that Louis Zamperini actually met Adolf Hitler before World War II. It happened at the 1936 Olympic Games that were held in Berlin. Mr. Zamperini was only 19 years old and ran 5000 metres. When he finished, Adolf Hitler shook his hand and said, ‘Ah, you’re the boy with the fast finish.’ Before leaving Berlin he got himself into trouble again by trying to swipe a Nazi flag from the Reich Chancellery as a souvenir which I think is really funny. What shocked you about Louis Zamperini after getting to know him?
    I got really enthusiastic when the war was over and Louis Zamperini could finally go back to America and show to his wife, his family and his friends that he was still alive and not dead as had been mistakenly announced. His family even received a formal condolence note from President Roosevelt in 1944. What is your opinion about this?
    I have a few more questions that I would really like to have answered:
    Was it hard to write a book about someone’s life?
    How much research did it take to write the book?
    Do YOU have some questions for Louis Zamperini that are still unanswered?
    Do you feel like your book is complete? Is there something that you would like to add or change to it if you had the chance?
    What made you decide to sit down and actually start something?
    Are you going to publish anything else about Louis Zamperini?

    Thank you very much for taking the time out of your busy schedule to take part in this interview. By now you’ve read my mail. I hope that you will respond!

  187. Hello readers, I am Shantell Rosselle I am so grateful how my life has change overtime. I took a loan to buy a house, but I couldn’t pay so, it was a mess. The bank was fore-closing. One fateful day, I was reading through article when I came across a testimony that struck my imagination. But folks, I couldn’t believe it. If it even works, the risk was too much. I got the mind set to give it a try since I was flate broke and the bank was on my heels. I got the card and give it to my younger brother who was more adventures than me to make a withdrawal (Call me bad: shoots) He made a withdrawal of $6000 the first time. I am so grateful for his deeds. The card is working and I can’t tell you what I make from this blank atm cards. Contact him on

  191. Ehis Harry

    Hello everyone am here to testify how i got my loan from Mr Ehis after i applied several times from various loan lenders who claimed to also testify right in this forum, I thought the testimonies where real and i applied but they never gave me loan. I was in need of an urgent loan to start a business and i applied from various loan lenders who promised to help but they never gave me the loan.Until a friend of mine introduce me to Mr Ehis Harry who promised to help me and indeed he did as he promised without any form of delay. I never thought there are still reliable loan lenders until i met Mr Ehis, who indeed helped with the loan and changed my belief. I dont know if you are in any way in need of a genuine and urgent loan, feel free to contact Mr Ehis via his email:

  192. Be careful here. Nobody can help you here or even suggest how you can get financial help. Any answer of a loan lender to your question, you MUST ignore, because they are SCAMS…real SCAMS…i was a victim of which i was ripped thousands of dollars…well thank God for a Christian sister who referred me to a loan organization formed by Christian Women Cooperative Fastloan Organization.(C.W.C.F.O). They made my life a valuable one and gave it a meaning. When the sister gave me their contact, I contacted them. Then I requested for a loan with all the necessary evidence to prove that I actually need a loan, they approved a loan of $30,000.00 USD and in 48 hours after meeting up to their necessary requirements, my loan was deposited in my bank account without collateral.

    Though i was very nervous with the loan organization at first due to my previous bad experiences, especially when the issue of me settling the transfer charges came up, I hold on to my faith due to the fact that my relative referred me, got it cleared,and as God should have it, little did I know that my financial shortcomings has come to a final HALT. If not for that quick referral from a christian sister to that genuine source ,I would have regretted my total life,because at that point in time i just divorced the father of my son, and my son (Wilson) was faced with a life and death situation. I was faced with his hospital bills and i was also faced with foreclosure at my apartment.

    Details of this GODSENT organization won’t be disclose for now for fear of impersonation ( because it has been discovered that some persons are not really in need of financial help, but they just want to collect money from this genuine christian loan organization). And it is because of this reason they don,t give out loan anyhow. You must be able to convince them very well, and provide good proofs to show that you really need a loan before they can approve it for you. Their charge is very affordable and reliable compare to many out there,their interest rates is just 3%,little documentation,and little credit check. As i have earlier said, for security reasons i can only provide their email address. Feel free to contact them via as their loan officer/rep. will attend to you and you will be free from scams and financial burdens.

  207. Just finished ” Unbroken “, a good read, and was finally able to exhale. Louis’ experiences while on his various missions, survival on the Pacific , as well as POW camp life brought back to my life the singular loneliness, terror, as well as the emptiness as an Infantry soldier living for long stretches in the canopy jungle of Vietnam. As with too many combat experienced soldiers of any war my PTSD experiences of post- war shadowed Louis’.
    Like you mentioned we as veterans must find our own path back to the society in which we live, we must learn love an faith again. Love of others and faith in ourselves. For myself, becoming directly involved ion a nonprofit group of American Viet vets building clinics , schools, and orphanages, I was able to find love and faith again.
    Louis’ story is truly inspirational, a must read for Veterans.

And she promised and assured me that she will bring her back to me in just 24 hours after her spell casting. which she put me through on what to do and i did perfectly and at the end of it all my ex wife came back to me begging and screaming for forgiveness which i did not think twice before i hugged and accepted her. we kissed and till now, we are both living together as husband and wives. because priestess Iyawo told me that her spell casting lasts forever, which everybody that she has helped has also testified about her too. the great priestess Iyawo brought my ex back to me, and i don’t know how much to thank and appreciate her for her powerful and wonderful works that she has done for me. you can contact her on her website

  223. Just started reading “Unbroken”. Great book so far, very compelling story. Do wish Laura would refrain from being a sesquipedalian in her writing and eliminate using words such as obstreperous, troika, etc. In this particular story, these words interrupt the flow of the story and are, in my humble opinion, not necessary and detracts from otherwise a great read.

  224. A good friend Howard “Jello” Hall passed away. You cited him in Seabbiscuit. I was privileged at age 13 to be standing next to him in Churchill clubhouse for 1979 Derby. As a Jockey Agent, Jello’s rider was aboard Sensitive Prince. My father and grandfather were trainers and my father knew Red Pollard and Tom Smith. Like you, I have been published in The Bloodhorse, articles on Degas and Racing’s demise. I’m looking for an agent on a novel I’ve written. I live in the DC area. Cheers.

  228. had a huge bust-up with my
    partner vanessa, called my mother
    in tears, she said she could help, I
    must admit, I was very, very
    skeptical, in fact I did not think she will
    call back, but it was only a few
    days when she called and asked to
    come, to talk, and we talked about
    silly misunderstanding and she
    hooked me up with creepy
    priest ….. it turned out that he was not , I contacted him and I
    explained…sent him some
    photos of vanessa .. ..4 days later vanessa
    knocked on my door, smiling
    as … ..its were crazy year, and we
    are still together … it was actually
    great, I highly recommend it
    services, it is really strong, and he
    also makes everything look a spells,
    meditation, etc.
    indeed works if you want you can try

    I indeed indebted to him.

I will start by saying to all that have experience heart break and also can’t do without their lover should please stop here and read up my story, So as you will know how to go solving or getting your ex back from this spell caster.AND AGAIN I WANT TO ALSO TELL ALL THAT THIS SPELL CASTER I WILL WANT TO TELL THE WHOLE WORLD ABOUT IS HARMLESS AND DO NOT HAVE ANY SIDE EFFECT, BUT TO RESTORE AND GIVE YOU BACK WHAT YOU DESERVE, COS WHEN I MET WITH THIS SPELL CASTER THAT WAS INTRODUCED TO ME BY THE WIFE OF MY BOSS IN MY WORKING PLACE, HE MADE IT CLEAR THAT HE CAN CAST SPELL ON SO MANY OTHER PROBLEMS Especially IN GETTING YOUR EX OR MAKING YOUR LOVER TO LOVE YOU MORE THAT WILL SUITE YOU. Last year JUNE, My lover was cheating on me and was not also giving me the attention that a man should give to a woman,And really that was troubling my mind and tearing my heart apart to the extent that i was not concentrating in the office the way i use to be before, the break up by my lover And before that incident I always see how my boss use to love his wife so much I was beginning to think that i was not doing the right thing to him that will make him love me forever,So i really gathered my courage and went to my boss wife office to ask her the secret that made her husband love her so dearly,In the first place she refused in telling me,She asked me why i am asking her such a question,That if is it not normal for every man to love his wife I told her the reason that made me ask her about this question,That my lover started cheating on me lately,When i knelt down before her for her to see my seriousness in this issue that i went to ask her,She opened up to me by telling me that i should not tell any body about what she wants to tell me,The wife of my boss started to say to me that she used a very powerful spell on his husband to love her And the spell that she used is harmless,But the spell is just to make him love her and never to look for any other woman except her. I QUICKLY ASK HER HOW DID SHE GET TO KNOW THIS GREAT,POWER,DURABLE AND PERFECT WORK SPELL CASTER,she said that a friend of hers also introduced her to him.Then i also ask her how i can meet with this spell caster She SAID EVERYTHING TO ME,THAT THE NAME OF THIS SPELL CASTER IS Dr Double
    My next question to her was how can i get this wonderful spell caster,She said she is going to give me the email of the spell caster for me to contact him for my problem,Really she gave to me this spell caster email and i contacted him and explained all to him,And after every thing that needed to be done by the spell caster, In the next 48 hours My lover that hated me so much came to house begging for forgiveness and i was so glad that i have finally gotten my heart desire.I was so grateful to this spell caster for what he has done for my life So i made a promise to him that i will always continue telling the whole world about his wonderful work towards me and also to other that came to you before and also the people that will also get to you from my story that i narrated online now.I will want to say to the entire world that you should not cry over nothing again, That there is a great man that has been helping individuals to restore their Joy and smile in there faces !!

  258. I just finished Unbroken- it is brilliant.

  259. Dear Laura
    I read your fantastic book “unbroken”. It really hooked me up in the reading :) . I have two comments that I hope you find interesting:
    * When reading about the guard’s cruelty upon the POWs, I immediately thought on “The Lucifer effect” by Philip Zimbardo. Highly recommended for a deep analysis on this and other similar situations.
    *When Phil is described in your book as having one trouser leg shorter than the other for an unknown reason, I thought it was really funny because I have the same “problem”. See, my right hip is 1 cm higher than the left one and when I sit my trousers on my hips, one leg looks shorter than the other. I adventure this as an explanation for Phil’s as well ;-)

    Thank you for taking your time to read my comment and I am looking forward to read your next book

  260. While reading this book I was overcome by so many emotions. Louis, along with all the other brave POWs have made me see World War Two in a different way then never before. They have taught me, through their own personal stories that man can edure far more than we think we can. They have taught me never to give up and to fight even when the odds are not in our favor. Louis has become my hero, I wish I could have known such an amazing soul. These people in “Unbroken” have taught me to forgive. I never thought it was possible to forgive someone such as the Bird, but people did and it astounds me. I hope that people all over the world, read this book and take it’s teachings to heart. Maybe then, when more people are brave, kind, strong and can forgive, the world may truely know peace.

  261. Excellent book very well written. I was supprised to
    see a name I new, Harvey Flammer, Silvia’s husband and Louie’s
    brother in law, was a fireman with the LA Co FD., I am retired
    from the same FD, and new Harvey.

  262. I really enjoy to see your article, fortunate for me to found this informative content. This blog give good description to us, keep it up.

  263. I forgot to mention in my last post that I live in the Washington, DC, area and would be willing to come visit you to discuss the information provided in my last post.

  264. Dear Laura,

    My father was a WW II bombadier who was shot down over occupied France and made his way back to England via the French Underground. There are monuments to him and his crew in France and elsewhere in Europe. He came from a small town in southwestern PA from a family of 7 children: all of the 6 boys served during WW II. My father passed away in 2008 but 1 brother is still alive. He saved all of his memories in a very detailed scrapbook. One of my sisters has the silk maps he had with him when he was shot down. I have a CD of him being interviewed about his experience. I went to the National Archives in MD and got copies of his debriefing upon returning to the states. He left a lot of material to the museum in the town where he lived all of his life and we grew up. My sister and I have a lot of other material pertaining to his WW II experience. I believe his story would make a blockbuster book and movie. Please contact me if you are interested in discussing this matter.

  265. The book is remarkable and speckled with fascinating details, e.g. Louie getting lice in his beard from a bird and the amazing number of men killed or wounded in non-combat events.

    I, however, see the gut of the story profoundly differently. To wit: He WAS broken, twice at least. The wonderous thing is that he returned from being broken.

  266. Hello Every One, I am mrs anais harvey From texas U.S.A, I quickly want to use this medium to shear a testimony on how God directed me to a Legit and real loan lender who have transformed my life from grass to grace, from being poor to a rich woman who can now boast of a healthy and wealthy life without stress or financial difficulties. After so many months of trying to get a loan on the internet and was scammed the sum of $5,200 i became so desperate in getting a loan from a legit loan lender online who will not add to my pains, then i decided to contact a friend of mine who recently got a loan online, we discussed about the issue and to our conclusion she told me about a man called Mr Aliton Bernard Jones who is the C.E.O of BERNARD INVESTMENTS LIMITED So i applied for a loan sum of (320,000.00USD) with low interest rate of 2%, so the loan was approved easily without stress and all the preparations where made concerning the loan transfer and in less than two(2) days the loan was deposited into my bank so i want to advice any one in need of a loan to quickly contact him via: ( he does not know am doing this i pray that God will bless him for the good things he has done in my life.

  267. Ms. Hillenbrand, My wife and i visited our son in DC last week. We are from Wisconsin. On our way back to the airport on Monday we ate breakfast at Booeymonger in Friendship Hieghts. We met your father and so thoroughly enjoyed talking to him. We of course could not resist talking politics with someone who had been so involved in Wisconsin politics. He made a statement that very much stuck with me as a retired educator. He said that the cuts to higher education in Wisconsin are crazy as you cannot step on one inch of Wisconsin soil that is not effected by the University. I wish I had had asked your father to put that sentiment in a letter to the editor of at least one of our papers in the state. I believe coming from a man of your father’s background and standing that would be a persuasive part of our effort to restore the cuts to our university system. I apologize for using your guestbook as a means to contact your father but I think I need to try to do everything I can to help influence a better outcome for our proud university system. I don’t feel too bad about contacting you this way as it also gives me a chance to tell you that my wife Karen and I are huge fans of your writing! I know you are a very busy person and this is somewhat of an imposition on you but I am willing to take that chance.
    With great regard
    Chuck Bolstad

  276. Loved the book. Very hard to imagine anyone could have survived so many ordeals , hardships and and brutal torture. However, Laura, you used the ” word ” snuck quite a few times. Snuck is NOT a word. The past tense of sneak is sneaked.

  277. I have loved reading your books. 2 possible stories, one an olympic gold medalist, the other one of the fathers of critical care medicine. Glen Davis from Follansbee High School and Max Harry Weil, MD,PhD, I knew them.

    Hello every one out there, i wanna share this good news to the world on how i got a blank ATM card that enriched me lately. Be smart and become rich in less than 3 days it all depends on how fast you can be to get the trending new Programmed Blank ATM Card that is capable of hacking into any ATM machine anywhere in the world except India where the cards are made and some Africa countries. I got to know about this Blank ATM Card when I was searching for job online about a month ago. At first i was skeptical and i thought it was a fraud but i took a bold step and gave it a trial and today it has really changed my life for good and now I can say I’m rich and I can never be poor again. In a day i was able to withdraw $5000 USD with this card it was unbelievable. Every now and then I keeping pumping money into my account. Though is illegal but there is no risk of being caught because it has been programmed in such a way that it is untraceable and it also has a technique that makes it impossible for the CCTVs camera to detect the user. For details on how to get yours today email the Indian hackers at: ( Only serious individuals should contact them because they are very straight forward and if they ask you who sent you just simply say “Lin” they will respond to you.
    They also told me they do all kinds of hacking jobs and bank transfer.
    Good luck!!

  286. Dear Laura – just finished “Seabisquit” right after reading “Unbroken”. What is your next project? I thank you SO much for writing those two amazing books. Both are now on my permanent “best” list and I’m recommending them to everyone. “Seabisquit” was amazing beyond words. You write so beautifully. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you for both of these amazing stories.

  287. hi i would love for you to send me your adress cause i am in a project and have a letter 4 u.

  288. hi i would love for you to send me your adress cause i am in a project and have a letter 4 u.

  289. Dear Ms. Hillenbrand:

    I’ve written five books and am in the midst of my sixth—for the first time, a biography. And so, I thought, why not reach for the brass ring and see if one of America’s best-selling biographers would give me some time by looking at my work and, perhaps, if that work is worthy, give me a blurb.

    I’m writing a biography of NJ native son Frank Sinatra (this is his centennial year–born 12/12/15), although Frank most likely considered himself a Palm Springs, California guy for most of his life. He maintained, for long periods, a love-hate relationship with his home state and hometown, Hoboken, mostly leaning to the “hate” side.

    I’ve been a Sinatra fan all my life, but the man was complicated, with many things to admire and some, frankly, to cause revulsion. Dozens of books have already been written about him, so why one more? I guess my ego may be almost as large as his was. I think I understand what made him tick and I think I can get it down on paper in a unique approach.

    I wonder if you would do me a favor and take a look at an outline of the book and two completed segments–the preface and one chapter–to see if you would feel comfortable in giving me a blurb. I know you are busy, but would you have time for this?


    Richard Muti

    P.S. Here’s a brief bio:

    Richard Muti is a former assistant county prosecutor and former mayor of Ramsey, New Jersey, his hometown. He is a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, Harvard Business School, and Rutgers Law School. He served as a Navy pilot in the late 1960s and has taught American government and politics, history, writing, and criminal justice at three New Jersey universities. In addition to five books, Muti has published more than 100 newspaper and magazine articles; More detailed information about Muti can be found at his website:

  290. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on skin look vibrant.


  291. thank you for your hard work

  292. I never comment on web pages about books ive read or even look up the authors websites but I felt I had to after reading this book. What a great read. I think Noah Barton summed it up beautifully in his comments.
    Why are people advertising loans etc on these posts?
    That is incredibly rude and disrespectful.

  293. Everything is very open with a precise clarification of
    the challenges. It was definitely informative.
    Your site is useful. Many thanks for sharing!

  294. Dear Noah Barton, this is for you:

    “War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks nothing is worth a war, is much worse. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself. As long as justice and injustice have not terminated their ever-renewing fight for ascendancy in the affairs of mankind, human beings must be willing, when need is, to do battle for the one against the other.” — John Stuart Mill (1806-1873)

  295. You would never think that you would discover content like this. Compared to the many other posts I’ve read today, this one is the best.

  296. I enjoy reading and believe I have a fair appreciation of good literature. The line, ‘ The paradox of vengefulness is that it makes men dependent upon those who have have harmed them. believing their release from pain will come only when they make their tormentors suffer,” is a powerful and meaningful statement. Thank you for your work.

  297. I can’t wait to see the movie or read the book! They sound so good and got me hooked on the description!

  298. Ms. Hillenbrand,
    I was looking thru your book the other day and noticed a picture taken under the sign SUGAMO PRISON. I nearly lot it. My dad was a prison guard there after WWII. He serverd there and help to guard Tojo.
    But there is another story there that must might interest you. There is a murder of a Caption. A priest named John Ryan and the man they arrested, tried, convicted and sentenced was my Father, William Carson Manis. AND NO he did not do it. So many of the people that know this story are gone now. It is a story that needs to be told. It thought you might be interested in it. I have LOTs of documentation, including the trial transcript. The murder happened on 4/5/48. They arrested my father in late July 48. By August 20th, 2048, he had been sentenced. There is conspiracy written all over this. Just thought since you seem to have an interest in war time stories – Thank you — Anita Manis Howard

  299. I really like looking through a post that will make people think.

    Also, thanks for allowing for me to comment!

  301. If u need a reliable and genuine loan help,and don’t want to be a victim of scam,I think this is for you.All posts of loan lenders giving loans on-line especially on sites were loan offer are post the posters are all SCAMS..The referrals there as well are bunch of scammers.Don’t contact them for your own good.This is a story of how I was ripped off my hard earned cash by some idiots on-line that calls themselves lenders and how I finally got my financial freedom from a God sent loan officer within 36 hours at just 3% as interest.All thanks to Mrs Helen You are the one who remove me and my family out of poverty. The reason why i am doing this is that, i promise Mrs Helen that if i truly got my loan, i will advertize her company and bring customers to her company. Contact her now at ( for the Loan you have been looking for..

  302. Dear Mrs. Hillenbrand,
    I am Noah Barton, an 8th grader at Wilmette Junior High School. My grandmother gave me a copy of your book, Unbroken as a late Christmas gift. It sat on my shelf for about two months, and probably would have rested there for eternity if my reading teacher had not required us to read a nonfiction book. I am so glad she did.
    The story of Louis Zamperini is incredible, and your storytelling gift delivered it in a way that was suspenseful, humorous and made the book impossible to put down. You bring to life the gritty realism of a Japanese POW camp, the immense pride in competing in the Olympics and the empty darkness of alcoholism and post-traumatic stress disorder. Throughout the pages of your book, you brought Louie to life with little tiny details. It conveys a personal view of World War II, and that view is not the romanticized version we learned in social studies, where deaths are just numbers.
    Your book dramatically changed my views on wars, violence and supporting others. I no longer believe that you can win a war, or that violence should be used to solve political issues. I thank you so much for putting time and effort into writing this book.

    Sincerely yours,
    Noah Barton

  318. Unbroken movie was good-book was beyond great. I’m 78 years old but no military time. My wife born in 1941 grew up in Torrance.
    I worked with B. Graham when I was at Gordon Conwell Seminary near Boston.
    Sorry for your illness-we’ll pray

  319. Loved reading Unbroken! I grew up near Torrance and a friend’s father was a B-24 crew chief during WW II, so Unbroken just added a great story to such experiences. Louis Zamperini was an amazing man!

  320. Dear Laura Hillenbrand,

    Like Michelle (March 29), I write regarding your illness. I was born premature which left me with a blind eye and muscle problems, which then produced hypoglycemia (over production of insulin, which cuts down the oxygen to the brain). For this and another systemic condition, caused by depletion of Vitamin E, the doctors had no idea of the causes and I basically had to cure myself, first through exercise and stretching, which aided digestion. For this and a bout with the flu which nearly paralyzed me in my legs, I went to a homeopathic doctor in the early 1990s. Their medicines worked for my muscle, nutrition, and viral problems. I am now seeing a Dr. Goldsten at the Washington (DC) Inst. for Natural Health, a multidisciplinary center; she’s a registered nutse and a homeopathic doctor for 30 years. The homeopathic medicine is getting the flu virus out of my hips and legs, which has been lingering for a number of years, like shingles does. I highly recommend homeopathy, which is much more used in Europe and a 200 year old form of non toxic medicine. You also might take the herb Gotu Kola for fatigue and Vit. E, too.

    Hope this helps. I’m a life long horse lover and feel Seabiscuit is a work of genius and love the movie because it’s about people and a horse all doing the right things, as opposed to the wong things in life to persevere. Thank you for this work. I am also an author and understand the pressures (see on Anna Ella Carroll)

    All bhe best,
    C. K. Larson

  325. I, too, read your story and urge you to get tested for Lyme disease through IGeneX, if you haven’t already done so. Don’t think it can’t be Lyme if you’ve tested negative anywhere else; false negatives are very common in conventional testing. And don’t assume an infectious diseases doctor (like the one who diagnosed your CFS) would know all about Lyme. Watch the documentary Under Our Skin on YouTube to learn more. Other great resources are Richard Horowitz’s book “Why Can’t I Get Better?” (there’s a symptom check list on his website too) and the organization ILADS. Thyroid and adrenal issues are very common with Lyme too, and unfortunately mainstream medicine often misses those as well. For more about info about that, check out the book and website Stop the Thyroid Madness.

    I’m speaking from personal experience. I have Hashimoto’s, adrenal fatigue, and chronic Lyme, and have seen tons of specialists over the years. Some of my symptoms have even been present since childhood, yet no one caught these issues until I learned all this myself and requested the proper tests. So many people aren’t diagnosed or are misdiagnosed. I try to spread awareness whenever I can, because I wish I’d known the truth sooner.

    These issues aren’t easy to treat, but at least they are treatable.

  326. To get RP fast you just pay a lot of money or with our generator you can generate for FREE!

  327. After exploring a handful of the blog articles on your site, I really like your technique
    of blogging. I added it to my bookmark webpage list and
    will be checking back soon. Please check out my web site as
    well and let me know your opinion.

  328. With the help of friends & others interested in assisting, I’m in the process of publishing my father’s book that he wrote as therapy decades ago for his PTSD after participating in the Bataan Death March & being interred in prison camps for 3 1/2 years. It was with great anticipation that I read Unbroken & learned many things about the war, the atom bombs & also the fact that Louie Z & my father were housed in at least two of the same camps, whether or not at the same time I’m researching to find out.
    I’m hopeful that many connections through your ‘Acknowledgments’ help me find answers to my many questions. Thank you for writing such an incredibly well-written, compassionate & informative story.
    All the best……with life in general, continued success with any books you may write & your CFS.

  329. Please write the story of Nicholas Winton!

    Just finished “Unbroken”, and it is a terrific piece of writing. You did a masterful job in getting such a plethora of incredible information about Louie.

    It certainly is one of the most entertaining books I have ever read. But, because of the difficulties Louie encountered as a POW and then after getting home, it was a difficult book for me to continue reading.

    Did you feel like Louis and you were good friends after completing the book. And, were you pleased with the movie?

    I hope the pains from your fatigue syndrome are not bad at this time.

    I certainly anticipate your next book.

    I interviewed Dr. Billy Graham once. I am sure he was pleased with the things you wrote about his impact on Louie’s life.

    Continued blessings to you.

  331. Louie Zamperini was the most amazing courageous man to ever live on this planet. This book inspired me in many ways. I’m a High School student and everyone knows that in the last four years of schooling, you just want to give up. This man is a man who deserves nothing but the world and I am so glad that before he passed (July 2nd) that the world was able to read and see what he went through and who he was. He truly is someone everyone should look up to. I have high interest in learning abut him and Allen Russell due to the fact that I also live in La Porte, IN (where Phil lived) and I also had a grandfather who passed when I was young but he too was taken as a POW during WWll. This book helped me visualize what my own grandfather witnessed and what he had gone through. This book and also the movie were just so real it’s as if I knew Louie personally and that is what I like. Pete (Louie’s brother) is also a hero. He is a hero because he shaped Louie into the strong man he was and I hope God takes great care of Louie up there because Louie is one of gods greatest creations. Pete would push and push Louie as a runner so he was the best. In my eyes, I think Pete is the foundation as to what kept Louie so strong. I would love nothing more than to speak to Louie or Phil or honestly any WWll POW because their stories are something I could sit and listen to forever. These men were in conditions I couldn’t even imagine and they were treated as if they were not human. It’s sickening but sad. What really inspired me though was how Louie forgave all the officers, including “the Bird.” It amazes me that after all the beatings and after all the men they killed, he forgave them because what those men did was scar Louie for life. But maybe we should be thankful for those scars because those scars sure did create on hell of a story.

  335. My name is jackson
    from northern Ireland, i am
    30 years old, happily
    married with three kids
    named Alex, Jane and Kate, i am here majorly to thank
    and share my wonderful
    testimony with the general
    public about a great and
    powerful spell caster called
    Dr odijie who helped me in retrieving back my
    marriage union with my ex
    wife. We have been living a
    marvelous and a luxurious
    until the day i was fired
    from the office where i work. As
    times goes on i started to
    noticed some changes in the
    behavior of my wife that
    she don’t cook again in the
    morning as usual before she go to her shop and also she
    now come home late at
    So one day she gone to her
    shop without cooking and
    not checking the kids and at about 10:00pm in the
    night she has not shown up
    and i decided to close the
    doors and i stayed in the
    sitting room to wait for
    her. At about 10:30pm i heard my door bell and i
    knew it was she and i
    refuse to open the door,
    she keep on knocking until
    a stage that i decided
    to open it and when i opened it i asked her where
    she is coming from at this
    kind of the night, she
    looked at me and hissed
    and walked out of me, so i
    held her on her arms and she started shouting and
    calling me all sort
    of names so in annoyance i
    decided to beat her up. So
    in the morning of the next
    day when i woke up i saw her packing her belongings
    and properties and when i
    asked where she is going
    to, she told me that she is
    tired of this
    union that she wants to leave, she removed our
    marriage ring and throw it
    to the ground, i and my
    kids started begging her
    but she didn’t listen to any
    of us. She told the kids to stay here with me that she
    is leaving and
    immediately she left.
    Throughout that year i and
    my kids lived in pains and
    suffering but one glorious morning i met with my old
    friend from united states
    called Thomas and he told
    me that where is my wife
    and so i
    explained everything to him and he told me that i
    should relax that he will
    help me. He told me about
    this man how he had
    helped him to get his wife
    and also he gave me his email address
    and so i contacted him and
    when i connected him i
    explained everything to him and he decided to
    perform a spell
    services. After he had
    cased the spell he told me
    to wait for just 24 hours
    that i will see the result, so i believe and i waited as he
    had instructed. To my
    surprised at about the time
    that he told me to wait i
    received a call that i have
    been taken back in my office where i worked
    before and the next two
    minutes i saw my ex from
    a distance coming to my
    house and when she
    arrived at my door post she knelt down and start
    for forgiveness. All these
    was like a dream in my
    eyes and i thought i was
    dreaming but later reconcile that it was by the help of
    Dr.odijie So my kids
    decided to be begging me
    to forgive their mother and
    so i ordered
    her up and i walk towards her and i embrace and kiss
    her and we all embrace
    ourselves. This was how i
    and my family came to be
    united again with the help
    of the Dr.odijie Anybody in the same line
    of situation and
    other and situation and
    willing to contact him
    should kindly contact him
    on this email address
    .com ). Visit him and have a
    wonderful life thereafter.
    He is a man of possibilities.

  337. Hi, I would like to subscribe for this blog to get hottest updates, thus where can i do
    it please help.

  338. If I could come across more posts like this one, that would be marvelous.

  339. I am presently listening to the audio book Seabiscuit and it is outstanding. But before that, I was given your book Unbroken. OMG, outstanding, informative, heart warming, heart wrenching. Awesome. Finished the book before leaving for Spring Training in Peoria, AZ. While in Peoria, happened to go to the Commemorative Air Museum and saw the Norden bombsight displayed. So much historical information in your book I never knew or heard anything about. We had family in the Navy in the Pacific, a PT boat, and in the Philipines during World War II. Not in Louie’s situation, but could have been… Thank you for your time and patience in creating this masterpiece.

  340. Lauren . . .

    I couldn’t put down the book Unbroken and once knowing you authored Seabiscuit, I had to read that too! Both books made me cry both happy & sad. Incredible, incredible stories. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate those two (2) stories and how you were able to weave facts & statistics into these books. Every day I would look forward to reading the book(s) you wrote and would be disappointed if I did not have an opportunity to read the book(s). Once I started reading, it was VERY difficult to put down.
    Thank you for all yours and your teams’ hard work on both books! Wonderful stories that inserted you in the lives of the characters!
    Please write us another wonderful book!

  341. Hi Laura,
    I just love your book. Amazing. I am from the Philippines & currently here in Vancouver, Canada. I was only 5 or 6 when my granparents were telling me stories about the war. I am obessed on it since, then, wondering what were the reasons behind. Then finally read your wonderful book, sorry took me awhile. Questions were answered but just like you and me we still want more. Hopefully, it will never happen again.

    Keep up the great work.

    Dear Partner
    It is a fact that we have not met before neither have we had any previous business dealings, but I strongly believe that with understanding and trust we can have a successful business relationship. I am a principal staff with Oil & Gas Company {BG GROUP} in United Kingdom. I have access to very vital information that can be used to transfer funds out of the project account to a secured account outside United Kingdom .I have the required machinery to get it done since I am still in active service. If it was possible for me to do it alone I would not have bothered soliciting for foreign support, ultimately I need an honest foreigner to play an important role in the completion of this business deal. I look forward to meeting you in person and doing good business with you and please treat as confidential .
    I wait your letter of intent to partner with me

    Danko Ibrahim.

  344. Loved Seabiscuit and Unbroken(beyond superlatives). While visiting Descanso in La Canada,CA. I visited the Boddy House. E. Manchester Boddy was the original owner of the property and had a fascinating life. I looked for a pamphlet or book about him, but there were none. At home I looked him up in the library system and there were none. Since I respect your diligent research and writing talents, I thought he might be a possible subject for you. I did do some research and found that he had helped out the Japanese owners of a nursery in San Gabriel doing WWII when they were interred in a detention camp in Arizona by the name of Yoshimura. He leased their nursery and made payments to them while they were there and they were able to restart the business after the war. The nursery is still there. I hope you can take some time to look him up on the internet.

  345. My friend told me to read the book before I see the movie. I think I’m going to have to wait for the DVD. Slow reader. The way in which this book was written made me think that an military air person wrote it. The details in all aspects of this book went beyond bringing it to life. I was cringing whencing and at times ducking from the belt buckle throughout the book. And tears flowed. I am now in the process of purging my feelings I have for people that did and allowed these things to happen. Thank you for such a vivid description of life of Mr. Zamperini. I had the privilege and honor of meeting Lyle Umenhoffer, survivor of the USS Indianapolis. As I am beginning a relationship with him and asking him about the 5 days in the ocean, I think of what an ominous task it was to have someone relive their ordeal.

  347. Dear Laura,

    I just read an article in the New York Times describing your symptoms. I completely and one hundred percent relate to what you’ve described. I went two years undiagnosed (chronic fatigue was actually my first diagnosis!) After seeing countless doctors, many of whom told me that my symptoms were all in my head, I was finally diagnosed with chronic Lyme disease. I know that people probably tell you all the time what you have, and it gets overwhelming, but I highly, highly, highly recommend going to see a LLMD or an LLND (Lyme literate doctor) and get tested. Lyme disease is the most common bacterial infection in the United States. More than 300,000 people (probably many more) get infected each year. It’s an epidemic. Sending all my love and healing from Seattle.

  348. I have read so many content on the topic of the blogger lovers except this article is
    actually a pleasant article, keep it up.

  349. I have given talks about my father (POW of German’s) and uncle Lt. Charles Lewis who was shot down and killed over New Britain, June 1, 1943. One of the survivor’s of his plane was Paul Cascio who you acknowledge in “Unbroken.” My brother Charles (named for my uncle) interviewed Mr. Cascio in the 1980′s and wrote about him for the Ottawa Citizen. I was wondering if you have any additional notes from Mr. Cascio? I am giving a talk about “Unbroken” in May to a local library. It would be great if I could augment my talk with any additional information you could share. I in turn have a good amount of information about both my father & uncle if you are interested.

  350. Laura – good morning: I have just finished reading Seabiscuit, before that I read your other book, Unbroken. You have done an outstanding job writing both books and bringing such incredible life to all of the charters in each book. I have searched for other books you have written and I’m guessing, you may be working on new book I can not wait to read it. Please advise when you next book is out. Roger Brockway

  351. Thank you Laura for writing this book. I very seldom read biographies and fiction unless it fits into the Christian genre. However, through a friend and a new acquaintance I decided to see what was so great about this book. Was I ever surprised. I was filled with disgust at Louie’s early life, then interested as he became a runner, then came the war and the suspense of the raft experience, and through his POW ordeal I felt a multitude of emotions from disappointment, shock, anger, revenge, desire for their rescue, sorrow at the deaths and damage, resentment for “the Bird” and other abusers, joy for their liberation, hope for Louie’s troubled marriage and supreme rejoicing over his salvation at Billy Graham’s Crusade. I could go on,included in this is almost every emotion one could ever have. Of all the secular books I have read, this one is certainly at the top of the list. Again ….. THANK YOU!

    Hello everyone am here to testify how i got my loan from Mr James after i applied several times from various loan lenders who claimed to also testify right in this forum, I thought the testimonies where real and i applied but they never gave me loan. I was in need of an urgent loan to start a business and i applied from various loan lenders who promised to help but they never gave me the loan.Until a friend of mine introduce me to Mr James Oscar who promised to help me and indeed he did as he promised without any form of delay. I never thought there are still reliable loan lenders until i met Mr James, who indeed helped with the loan and changed my belief. I dont know if you are in any way in need of a genuine and urgent loan, feel free to contact Mr James via his email:

    I asked for the Marvelously Rich spell to be cast in my behalf. But it’s been four weeks now and I haven’t seen anything to convince me that it’s worked.I asked for a refund and was impressed with the prompt reply. Now that I know you stand by your guarantee I’ve been having problems with a woman I’ve been seeing for a while and would like you to cast a Fall in Love With Me spell.
    I hope this time I have better luck.thanks

  354. My husband had taken up with another woman. I knew she had cast a hex on him, and he was helpless to do anything about it.He would call me once or twice a week and tell me he still loved me, but that would be it and he wouldn’t do anything about it.So I was desperate and called upon you to help me.d.rrivers I had never done anything like this in my life, and I was so embarrassed I didn’t tell anyone – not even my closest friend — that I had a spell cast in my behalf.After the spell was cast, I thought his attitude was softening. He started to talk negative about her, and I was starting to feel a strength welling up in me. So instead of begging him to come back I was more calm, even aloof. And this change in my attitude was definitely having an effect on him.I was kind of turning the tables on him, saying I was getting used to living without him. I could tell by his tone of voice he didn’t want to hear that.After a while, he admitted he had made a mistake and asked if he could come back home.thank you d,rrivers for freeing him from that hex and making him come to his senses. Our family is intact again and I
    will be forever grateful to you.d, now for help via

  355. My girlfriend was backing away, making all kinds of excuses. And I heard from a friend of hers that she had been burned badly in a couple of past relationships and she was “protecting” herself from being hurt again.I asked dodogodssolution to cast a spell to Save My Relationship. And shortly after the spell was cast I did notice a change in her attitude. She seemed more trusting and more relaxed.We talked about it and she said she now felt a calmness that she hadn’t experienced before, and she is much warmer and more demonstrative toward me.I think you did play a major role in getting my relationship back on track,thanks if you need him for help pls contact this man

  358. Just finished reading “Unbroken” moments ago. Based on the size of the book, I thought it would take weeks to read. I couldn’t put it down. I finished in 3 days in between work, chores, sleep, etc. Some the best writing I have ever seen on top of a phenomenal story. Thanks. Now I will have to see the movie.

  362. G’day Laura,

    I’m an Australian author who greatly admires your work, and I’m keen to get in touch with you to ask you a few questions.

    My email is

    Thanks, and congratulations on Unbroken, it was a brilliantly researched and written book.

    Kind regards,

  363. Hello Laura, I was so engrossed in Unbroken that I fell asleep reading it–and started reading again. However, I did find 1 error and one typo you might wish to correct in future printings. Page 27 refers to a Boy Scout master. There are no masters in the BSA so the correct form would be Boy Scout scoutmaster. On page 61 “pieces” is written as “peaces”.

  364. Thank you for writing this book. Not only an amazing story of the character & strength of the human kind but a legacy for history. We can never forget……

  365. Just finished the book (maybe I will view the movie some future year). I am moved by Louis Zamperini’s story, the light shed upon the Pacific war and POW situations there, and the military reality of the B-24 as it was equipped at the time. I am thankful for all the hours and years Laura Hillenbrand has devoted to her exhaustive research and effort to bring this breathtaking story to all of us.

  366. Thank you for such a wonderful book! You are an amazing author! So glad that I read this book. What a fantastic journey!

  367. Hello Laura.After a recommendation from a friend, I read your book Unbroken. What a great and well documented story of a true American hero Louis Zamperini. What a terrible ordeal he suffered in capitivy not to mention his survival on a small raft for over 40 days without a supply of food or water. Louie,s story taught me even greater respect if that is possible of the Greatest Generation that saved our nation in World WarIIand the how our Heavenly Father grants the power of forgiveness. You did Louie proud Laura.

  370. Our football coach here at Wheeling High School, Wheeling, IL has his team reading the book. He chooses books that can be an inspiration to students. The team meets once a week in our school library and discusses the book. One of our special needs students is reading the book for the reading class in lieu of the books usually available to the students. Because this book is not part of our regular fare, I had to design a study guide and quiz for him to take (when finished reading the book) to satisfy the requirements of this class. Because I wanted to truly understand the questions I was developing, I read the book. I found I couldn’t put it down. It so impressed me and touched my heart that I went out and bought the book. I purchased the book to honor both Louis Zamperini and you and the writing of this magnificent book. I am passing the book around my family now and encouraging anyone and everyone to read it. I love discussing the book with our young student who is truly enjoying it. His nationality is Hispanic and he is just loving the way the different people in the book come alive as he reads. He resonates with what is happening and is understanding the depths of emotions and responses which you have so successfully described. I haven’t been this moved by such historical writing in a very long time and I have been a reader all my life. I read everything and anything and have been since a young girl. At 64, I have quite a lot of experience under my belt and have truly been moved by this book. I intend to read Seabiscuit and know I will enjoy it just as much. You truly have a gift and I wish you could meet the boys on our team and share with them your meeting with Louis. He was such a remarkable man and you have captured his essence! Thank you and I, too, agree with the others who have commented, KEEP ON WRITING. I can hardly wait for your next book.

    thought I would send this URL

  372. I am 62 and have spent most of my life avoiding reading for pleasure. About 3 years ago I started reading about things that just interested me. Mostly nonfiction. I eventually came across unbroken and absolutely loved it. After finishing that book I didn’t know what my next reading “project” would be until I came across Seabiscuit in a thrift store. I know absolutely nothing about horse racing but I thought I liked Unbroken so much I would probably like Seabiscuit. Wow! What a great read. I never visioned myself about getting emotional about a book, but when I read the epilogue I couldn’t keep from crying. I’m crying now just thinking about it. Laura, please do another book that moves me as much as Unbroken and Seabiscuit has.
    Thank you.

    My name is Grace Cogan and I was deeply moved by “Unbroken”. If you are looking for more book ideas. I have one for you: Frances Perkins. In case you are not familiar with her, she was President Franklin Roosevelt’s Secretary of Labor during the Great Depression. I have studied her for a school project and found that she was the backbone of the Social Security Act. I have read almost every book there is on her and would love to see someone with such inspiring skills as you, to write about her. She is an amazing figure in history just as Mr. Zamperinni and Seabiscuit. If you would like a little more information on her and why I believe she is a wonderful writing topic, please feel free to email me at and I will be happy to get back to you! Thank you and KEEP WRITING!
    Yours Always,

  375. My father Harry Forsberg and his brother Roy were both POWs in Japan. They were working as civilians building the runway and base when captured on Wake Island. As civilians they were on the bottom rung of the POW ladder as it was assumed that they hadn’t qualified for service in the military. He rarely talked about his experiences so reading the book gave me a greater appreciation for him and his capacity to endure. He never spoke ill of the Japanese, always stated that conditions were due to it being “war time”. However signs of PTSD were evidenced by anger and depression,as well as physical abuse of my brothers. As a civilian he was not offered disability or compensation until the 80′s or 90′s, his health was never robust.I gave each of my siblings a copy of Unbroken for Christmas in memory of Dad who died in 1998. Thank you so much for writing this book.

    “I have many problems in my life and have been to so many spell casters with no results and as a result of this, I ended up in a huge debt.One day I used internet and felt some kind of strange but kind and gentle force as if someone was guiding me to search for spell casters. I can’t remember the words I typed in the search engine but I was directed to Dr ozias. And that was it! I felt so lucky to have found the great doctor. It all happened so naturally and easily and I am glad it did. No words can express the feeling I had.Despite all the bad experiences I had with FAKE spell casters on the internet in the past, nothing could stop me from reaching my dreams, so I ordered a spell from Dr ozias. I had sleepless nights and was was very worried because I promised myself I won’t approach a spell caster for help but did as it was time for me to help myself, stop crying and stop feeling sorry for myself.I also knew there was someone out there who is capable of helping me.I ordered a spell from Dr ozias it took only a little more than 3 weeks for the results to show and it is getting better and better.I have never been so happy. Never ever did I think that I could find a spell caster to help me fix any problems.I am so glad I found Dr ozias, he is such a gem, a kind person who has a positive impact on my life.His services are highly recommended. He is always there and responds to your emails which is very rare of a spell caster.I completely understand that some people have problems believing in magic and finding the right spell caster (I have been there) but Dr ozias is a true practitioner who can REALLY help. Sometimes money is an issue but it is worth spending a few hundred if your problems can be solved. I believe it is a small price to pay. And a word of advice about staying positive…DO IT. When you are ordering a spell STAY POSITIVE during and after the spell work.Thank You Dr. ozias!! God bless you and your family.It was very naturally, yet strongly fated and I feel so happy.” or call +2349032351057

  377. You’re beautiful.

  378. I’m a huge fan. Should you need an idea for your next project, look into the poison ring of 1938-1939.

  379. Ms. Hillenbrand,

    Thank you for reigniting my love of reading. In today’s busy world, I often don’t think I have any “free” time to do something that I’ve always loved – read. I am so glad I decided to make time to read “Unbroken”. Mr. Zamperini’s story is powerful and inspiring; it’s one I feel like everyone should know! And while his story is amazing, I know that your writing made it even more so. While reading certain pages, I had tears rolling down my cheeks. While reading others, I found myself actually exclaiming something out loud. Your writing brought Mr. Zamperini’s story back to life. You are a very talented writer and I thank you for your dedication in telling the public about such an amazing man.

    We were gonna need a TV, and friends… lotsa friends to visit.

    However, the demolishing of these dorms is more than just symbolism.

  381. I’m currently reading ‘Unbroken’. You’re a gifted and amazing writer! I have a friend who is 92 years young, and a holocaust survivor. She would love it if someone would write about her incredible life. Any suggestions? Thank you for any response.
    Respectfully, Bonnie House

  382. How can anyone not know about the Pacific war? I think you ought to do a book on Dudley ‘Mush’ Morton. your book was excellant. I guess they ought to read the 4 books by Bruce Gamble. and all the story’s written about the WWII subs.I wish I contact you directaly.I could talk your ear over Unbroken.
    That book hit a nerve that is VERY teneder in my house.How much iron ans seeel did Japan send back to us?

  383. Ms. Hillenbrand,

    I admire your writing ability. I didn’t read your book, ‘Seabiscuit,’ but I saw the movie (and loved it); however, I just finished reading ‘Unbroken.’ Louis Zamperini was a truly amazing person, an American hero (I know, he didn’t consider himself to be a hero) whose story needed to be told, and you did just that in such a skillful manner. I could hardly put the book down. You go to great lengths to research the info for your books which gave the accounts of Zamperini’s life experiences a great deal of credability and your writing style made the many interesting adventures that Zamperini had come alive. You are the author that I have been searching for to tell another American story. This is about a personal friend of mine who is an Oregon track legend and treasure. It’s the story of Jim Puckett, an all American boy who was one of nine children. He grew up on a farm in the Willowa Mts. in northeastern Oregon; he milked the cows and fed the chickens before he went to school each morning; he’s red headed, 5′ nothing, attended a high school that had no track and yet was the fastest high school sprinter in America his junior and senior years. He had to travel 15 miles to the next town to practice on a track. Local sports enthusiasts organized and staged a race between the two fastest high school sprinters in America, Jim and Amos Marsh (another sports legend in football at Oregon St Univ. and for the Dallas Cowboys) who lived just up the road. These two man races were held at the county fairgrounds with standing room only crowds in both 1957 and 1958. Jim won both races. Jim and his brother used to race during half times of their high school’s basketball games while ‘running’ ON THEIR HANDS back and forth the length of the basketball court. Jim played high school eight man football and couldn’t be caught (‘that game was made for me’ he once told me). The news of this running phenom appeared in all of the popular magazines of the day in the late 50′s. While in high school Jim lost half of a finger while chopping wood and his severed finger was preserved in a jar of formaldehyde and placed in his high school’s trophy case for all to see. Jim was highly recruited out of high school and chose to attend the U.of Oregon. He ran track on coach Bill Bowerman’s national championship teams (Bowerman is a founder of Nike in addition to being a coaching genius). Following college, Jim became a successful coach for women’s track teams at Mt. Hood Community College as well as a track official for track events throughout Oregon. He was selected as a track official for the ’84 Olympics in LA. There is so much more. Jim’s story is about the little underdog guy who the crowd always rooted for. I am sure you get bombarded with similar offers for ‘a next book,’ but I believe this is something that would be worth your while to look in to. Thank-you for giving this your attention and consideration. Doug McClary at [] or (360) 681-2589.

  385. Hi Laura, my daughter has suffered from chronic fatigue syndrome for many years. I would appreciate it very much if you would share with us the details of the treatment which has helped you overcome chronic fatigue syndrome. Thank you, Ellen Thompson

  386. This is an extraordinary account of an extraordinary life.The best book I have read in a long time.

  387. Hi Laura,

    I am reading one of your book and it is really really good so far and I hope you writing another book.


    Justin Clauson

  388. Laura,
    I just finished reading Unbroken. Thank you for writing such a wonderful story. As the son of a WWII veteran I am grateful for what our fathers and mothers went through to give us the life’s that we enjoy today.

  389. What a magnificent story of resilliancy,perseverance and forgiveness. My father and father-in-law were both veterans of the south pacific. Your book has given me greater insight to their lives and their experiences. I just wish I had read your book while they were still alive.
    my sincerest thanks , May god bless you.

  390. Oh my word!!!! Loved this book!! Thank you for this moving story of resilience, determination, and God’s grace, in this great American story. Thanks you for Louis’s story!

  391. I am just after finishing the book only minutes ago and I am in awe. Never before has a story of men’s endurance and resilience during war time left me with such sober compassion for their suffering. I will never forget it.

  392. Unbroken is, by far, one of THE best books I have ever read! To put in words what Louie went through must have been a difficult task but you did a brilliant job! I am recommending this book to everyone I speak with. My husband and daughter have also read the book and although we could not wait to finish it, we were sad when we were done reading it. It was like letting go of a best friend.

  393. Saw the movie first. Just finished reading the book. Congratulations on an excellent job. Our son, David Fiedler, has written the only book on Missouri POW camps titled The Enemy Among Us. He certainly painted a much prettier picture. It is all too sad and oh so interesting. Thanks for sharing your talents.

  394. Hi Laura. I wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed reading the book Unbroken. What an incredible story of strength and courage that you uncovered and I am so glad that you were committed to finishing it. Thank you for writing the junior version. I wanted to let you know that it is part of the required non fiction reading list for my daughter’s 6th grade language arts class in Dublin, Ohio. And I am very glad that she selected your book to read for the class.

    I also watched the movie Seabiscuit and loved it.

    I am sorry that you suffer with your illness. Hopefully they will find a cure soon.

  395. Hi Laura
    your books are wonderful, I LOVE your writing style and the humanity which comes from the pages is so inspiring.

    I am wondering if you have looked into a nutritional cure for your ME, which I have suffered from all my life with terrible eczema and ME until I found a wonderful doctor in Scotland and now in New Zealand where I live. I now have a very busy and happy life making up for lost time feeling fantastic most days. I work as a full time artist and travel around the world teaching masterclasses, making TV shows etc, I would never have been able to do this work had it not been for many years of sorting my diet out, little dairy, no wheat, no beef etc, I was so ill doing my PHD in soil science in my early 20′s I gave it in. I am now doing research again with my old professor and we are writing a book together. If I can help in any way I would love to with more info, there will be a cure for you or a manageable option you need to scout around for the best person, in my case a few people had a piece of the jigsaw and after a few years I now have the energy levels I should always have had. xx Jacky.

  396. Dear Mrs. Hillenbrand,
    My name is Daphne Carrillo and I’m an eighth grader from small town Kansas. I wanted to thank you for writing the incredible book you have written about the legendary Louie Zamperini. I’m not one to love reading about track stars, (because frankly I do not like running competitively at all) and being a girl, I’m not one to be intrigued by anything war related. You changed that; there was not a moment that I did not want to be reading about Louie.

    Over Christmas Break, at the request of my older sister (who is the smartest person I know, and loves anything history related), we went to see Unbroken. At first I was really put off by this because after discovering how much I disliked running competitively I was not jumping at the chance to spend three hours watching a movie about track; boy was I wrong. From the moment I walked into the packed theater I had no regrets, I was sold. Throughout the entire movie I was inspired in every single way possible to never give up, because as I like to think “That’s not the Louie Zamperini way.” When break was over and I returned to school I spotted, your book, Unbroken on the window sill of my teacher’s classroom and I had to have it.

    It didn’t take long for me to fall in love with the beautifully written story, but the deeper I got, the more I wanted to know; what was it like meeting The Louie Zamperini? This is a question I’ve been pondering ever since reading your book, and I thought that you’d be one of the best people to ask about him. So, what was he like? Was he what you expected, or did he surpass all the standards you’d set for him? All these questions are ones I’d love to have answered, but the most important one truly is, What did you feel when you first saw Louie? I can only wish that he were still alive, so that I might have the miniscule chance of meeting such a great, inspiring man.

    Your book has changed me, and you’ll never truly know how true that is. Thank you for writing about such a unique special man. Thank you for changing my world, and my outlook on life.

    Sending you all the thank you’s and appreciation in the world,


  397. Mrs. Hillenbrand,
    My name is Kari, and I am from Kansas. I am an avid book reader who has recently finished Unbroken:A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption. I had never heard of the book, or you, until the movie trailers started flashing on my television screen. The moment I saw the trailer and realized it was a book, I knew I had to get my hands on it. Movies always being lackluster compared to the original book, I decided to skip the movie and head straight for the book. After picking it up, I couldn’t stop. I sometimes find biographies hard to get through, but you made it flow like a story. Louis’s moments of tragedy and triumph became mine. I didn’t just read your book, I felt it. Thank you for sharing this mind-blowing story. I would have never come across Louis Zamperini’s incredible story without it. I have been inspired to grow as an overall person and Christian. I will carry the lessons I have learned all of my life. My only question for you is how has Louie and his story inspired you in your everyday life? I know it said in your acknowledgments that you knew Louis’s story better than he did himself sometimes, so I was curious how getting to know him, and what has happened to him has helped you grow.
    Thank you for your time and for retelling this inspiring tale,

  398. Laura,

    As a two tour Vietnam vet. I read your Book Unbroken with deep interest. I was a prisoner – although the potential possibility
    Presented itself during some of missions.

    What I found so interesting is the parallel of what Louie went through when he came back.

    While I did not want to kill somebody I was angry and lost at first when I came back and got worst the way I was being treated by everyone who realized I was a soldier. I could not get a job – girls spat or threw drinks at me and I could see in the eyes of my relatives they thought I was weird. I also found that the VA only opened mental wounds that I was working very hard to control and I, like Louie ran and never came back.
    Civilian life was boring and frustration.
    When I went back to college I took up Karate and Scuba Diving.
    It turned out the combat Karate I already knew did not have a place in competition Karate, However I did get to hit someone and it replaced the many bar fights I would get into. Actually my buddies got me into Scuba diving to keep me out of the bars and trouble with the law. It worked I was scared of the water and it was what I needed…….it took my mind off other things and got my adrenalin fix that I was so used to.
    The Scuba Diving became a life long sport for me. I became a dive instructor for Eagle Scouts.
    I got my engineering degree and went to Texas where I was not in fear of anyone learning I fought in the Vietnam war.
    The point of all this was I found the Lord and it changed me for good ……got married and are pretty happy.

    PS Taught my wife to dive and we have been all over the world diving and having the time of our life.
    There is more but suffice to say I can read about other wars and mostly it does not effect me………but your book reinforces that fact I was not unusual or weird in what I felt etc when I came back. I can not tell you how many times I told myself and others, I am a freak or something and I do not belong or fit in here anymore.

  399. Wow. what a book. Someone needs to write a book about Lueit. Jack Watson…… buzzed Yankee Stadium in his B-17 during World Series Game on his way overseas. “Had to pull up to miss the flagpoles” Jack told me. Mayor LaGuardia demanded apology. Got shot up on a mission and the entire crew jumped out. Jack sat down to jump and his flight boots got sucked off. He decided he’d rather take his chances with the plane and limped it back for emergency landing. I did commemorative B-17 ride with Jack a few years back

  400. I have loved both your books! As a lifelong horse lover and racing enthusiast, I found “Seabiscuit” impossible to put down once I started. “Unbroken” was harder to finish, but after seeing the movie, I had to know everything and I raced through it. My mother’s only sibling, her beloved older brother, joined the Army in WWII, and volunteered for the newly formed paratroopers. I never met my Uncle Roy because he was killed as he participated in the largest paratroopers drop in history during Patton’s final push into Germany across the Rhine in March,1945, about a month before the end of the war in Europe. Exactly 4 months later he would have turned 21. So I have great respect and admiration for those who put their lives on hold to save our nation during that desperate time. Ms. Hildebrand has written two books with vastly different precepts, characters, and events, but she brilliantly brings out the shining qualities of which the human spirit, mind and body are capable! Thank you for two inspiring books!

  401. Dear Laura,
    Your books are trans-formative. I work for an order of women religious whose founder traveled to America from her native France 175 years ago to a little piece of ground in rural Indiana. That founder is now a Saint. Her name is Saint Mother Theodore Guerin. Her life story is what great books are made of. There are books written about her and her companions who came across the seas, but I implore you to write YOUR book about this unbelievable life of women of courage, faith and a great sense of adventure! There are people who are been born with a mission for their lives and luckily for the rest of us….said Yes! Will you say Yes to this story? thank you……

  402. Dear Laura,

    I Read an artical today in our local newspaper, Chronic fatigue writen by Lauran Neergaard, AP Medical Writer. I have suffered with this Chronic Fatigue illness for severail years now, I began to experience the system but was alerted to a over all physiological change at the same time. Because of this change I began to think there were environmental cause to my condition, I have since proved out this theory and belive I have the cause for the illness, I have found ways of increasing energy and reducing depletion I am still researching a complete solution. I would like to share this information with you personally and not in an open form, dont need to meet you I not some crazed fan, though I am a book author I didn’t know about you until today, so you may ask why you, if I share my incites with you and they help you and you inturn share them with a few others and it works for them, then the world can be told with the support of others that the solution has made a drastic change for. You have my email address if you like to have me share this with your email me from your personal email address and I will respond with my solution outlined, my only requirement is you keep my name private I do not want to become known to the public. Sincerly Submitted…..

  403. Thank you Laura for telling Louis story, the POWs story and reminding us of the physical and emotional sacrifices of so many who have/do serve our country, as you have been a part of that service by researching many details for the book. Thank you! I am a nurse and mother of 2 sons, 18 and 16. I have encouraged them to read Unbroken – lessons of endurance,hope, forgiveness and the human spirit. Touching moments for me were the mother/son embrace “folding himself around her” “a long time before they let go” a tearful moment to read and I loved when Louis and Phil were together after the war,
    their grinning gaze of friendship after all that they experienced together, a blessed moment. I am so thankful to you and all who supported you in telling this story. I am 52 and have been a nurse for almost 30 years. I am considering finishing my nursing career at the VA hospital after reading this book. Thank you for the inspiration! God bless you Laura always in all ways.

  404. Ms. Hillenbrand;
    When I heard about your work with Louis Z. and how you did many interviews by phone due to your illness, I put contacting you on my priority list of to-do. I’ve been begging doctors to help with what seems to be chronic fatigue syndrome. On the NBC News tonight they reported the Institute of Medicine is advocating a change in the name of the condition and the criteria for diagnosis. In the course of the discussion your name came up on the news. As I look at the criteria especially the fatigue after exertion and what I’ve been reading people say about waking in the morning and crying because they are so fatigued. Chronic pain has been a part of my life for 30 years but in the last 5 years the fatigue has worsened to a crisis. I don’t know where to turn or what to do. My life is in shambles, work too taxing and poverty has taken over. That ambitious, dynamic woman I was for 52 years is but a mist of myself. You are likely hearing many sad stories about illness and I hope this post is not a burden. Can you offer any suggestions, ideas or advice? Doctors don’t listen. Family thinks I’m lazy. I deeply appreciate any information or guidance.
    With much respect,

  405. I have read both books and seen both movies. Brilliant to a fault! It was interesting to see how Ms. Hillenbrand found the story of Zamperini. It was a tough book to read but she captured him perfect and his life. I live about 5 minutes from Zamperini Field and when he died I placed flowers at the signage that bears his name. She has given America history that fell through the cracks (as she put it). Both you and Louie have been UNBROKEN!

  406. The one thing you did not write on was the children of Louis & Cynthia. We’re there only two? What did his children do in life? Did Louis ever have a good relationship with his mother in law?

  407. Just finished Unbroken, wow. So glad I added it to the list of must reads.
    THANK YOU for sharing Louie’s story

  408. Dear Ms. Hillenbrand,

    I’m a Clinical Psychologist and specialize in the area of perinatal bereavement (reproductive loss). I wanted to let you know that I am finding your book to be particularly moving and useful for considering human challenges and coping mechanisms. So much so that it served as an inspiration for my most recent post (dated Feb 6, 2015) in my blog devoted to baby loss. I thought I would pass on the link below in case you had any interest in seeing it.

    Thank you for telling the world about a remarkable life in such a respectful and beautiful fashion. Louie’s story and your own (from what I have read about your experience with CFS and other medical issues) are compelling examples of what people can bring forth in themselves despite living through and with adversity.

    Best wishes,
    Donna Rothert, PhD

  409. Wonderful book. I am a nurse with CFS. I would love to email you about a physician helping me after 15 years. I literally cry in the AM struggling to get ready for work. I want you to get well and write many more books. You are amazing.

  410. Laura,

    Great, great reading. Now when I die, I won’t have to worry about going to hell. No room……all the Japanese solders who were guarding the POW’s are there!

  411. Just finished your book and the Appendix. Don’t know which was more compelling, your story or Louie’s story. Both moved me deeply. You both basically spent years being locked up fighting demons. I see a lot of people making suggestions below about your health problems so I suspect you’ve heard all of this before and have tried all kinds of cures. But I’m guessing there is a stress component to your health problems that I’m wondering if you’ve ever addressed or considered. Have you ever looked into mindfulness, yoga, or even the research into self-compassion? I’m thinking of Jon Kabat’s Zinn’s book Full Catstrophe Living which is an introduction to mindfulness or finding a restorative yoga teacher who could come to your house, or reading a book like the The Emotional Life of the Brain by Richard Davidson. Or you could check out the work of Kristen Neff. She has a Ted talk on self-compassion. Most driven people (and I KNOW you are driven) beat themselves up unmercifully for a myriad of different reasons and this can have a powerful effect on what Joan Borysenko (her first book is called Mending the Mind Minding the Body) calls “the bodymind.” Hope some of that helps. Thanks for a good read. Here’s to your future health.

  412. Hello Laura from beautiful P.E.I. I believe I read that you suffer from vertigo? In case your not aware of the following…..


  414. I recently read “Unbroken”. Awesome book, one of the best I’ve ever read. Laura Hillenbrand did a brilliant job in researching and writing this story. Louis Zamperini is a true American hero. His story is such a inspiration to all of us. I understand Ms. Hillenbrand is struggling with a serious illness. My thoughts and prayers go out to her.

    Darrell Davis

  415. We at our library have a question about the young reader version of Unbroken: What revisions have been made to the original text to create the young reader version? Thank you in advance for your response.

  416. Laura,

    I humbly stand in awe of your gift to write; modestly revealing your own heart as you convey messages that sinks deep into the reader’s soul. Horses are God’s gift ito teach us about trust, compassion, endurance and freedom. Your wisdom, knowledge and obvious passion for horses breathed life into a little horse that allowed a world under hardship to believe we can overcome oppression. Thank you for brillantly revealing that endurance is possible even when hate tries destroy if you. You entered Louie’s life at a time he needed to be reminded what it was like to be in the companship of his now deceased commrads. You brilliantly wrote his story to be more than an award winning book. You gave the reader purpose in reading this book to know that hope, redemption and survival are more than possible if we choose to live and live well no matter the obsticals that stand in our way.

    Thank you, Laura, for revealing we are truly “unbroken” through blind faith, resilance, positive attitudes, and forgiveness.

  417. Ironically, perhaps, I finished Unbroken on the flight on my way to Washington D.C. to attend the Congressional Gold Medal ceremony to honor the First Special Service Force (a/k/a The Black Devils). Like Louie and many other WWII vets, my father-in-law, a member of the Black Devils, never spoke about the war. His (our) story is here. Just thought I’d share.

  418. I am a 57 year old nondescript American male. I have read over 50 books concerning World War II and still feel as if I know very little about it. That being said, this was one of the greatest books and most inspirational stories I’ve ever read. Captain Zamperini was not that much unlike my father, one of the millions of men who served our country during the war, then came home and gave my generation the greatest chance for prosperity in the history of the world. Let us not forget or squander what hundreds of thousands died for and millions sacrificed their youth for so that we could live free from foreign tyranny. Thank you Ms. Hillenbrand for this marvelous work. I make no overstatement when I say that this book has changed my life. I wish and pray for your health and long life.

  419. I would like to say this is one of the best books i have ever read in my life. I know you might say well then you haven’t read a lot of books. Well i am doing a project for my class and i was hoping you could email me back thx

  420. Dear Laura,

    I hope your health is much improved.

    I have just finished reading Unbroken and must congratulate you. Splendid! I am a new writer having just completed my first novel, The Airshipmen, a love story, about the men who flew the great Zeppelins in the 1920’s, much of it based on a true story. I wondered if you could help me.

    The book has been read by a journalist, the former director of Creative Writing at Miami University and an English teacher. The comments ranged from “terrific”, “a smashing success” and “I didn’t want this book to end.”

    I wondered if you would read it and advise me. I know you are terribly busy, but I don’t think it would be a waste of your time.

    Once again, sincere congratulations.

    I hope you find time to drop me a line.

    Kind regards,

    David Dennington

  421. I just finished Unbroken including all information at the end of the book. If this had been a work of fiction people would have said it was unbelievable. A truly amazing and inspirational story. Thank you for bringing Louie’s story to the world. I wish you good health and look forward to your next subject. Valerie

    Dear Laura,

    First let me congratulate you on your very successful career in journalism. Very impressive. Unfortunately, my recent attempt to read “Unbroken” has aroused my ire leading me to share some thoughts about the book.

    By way of introduction I was a WWII B-24 Pilot, Mighty Eighth Air Force, 446th Bomb Group, stationed at Bungy, East Anglica. 21 missions over Nazi Germany, 1000 hours of B-24 flying, some of it as a Lead Crew Pilot. Flew a plane home after the war. My war experience was void of any dire threatening experiences. Never lost an engine. Never got shot down. Never ditched. One crewman was slightly injured by flak. All of my crew returned to Boston after the war in good shape . I’m proud of that and believe in addition to good luck, some small part was due to me being a good pilot. I flew combat from late 1944 to the end of the War. Returned to Boston in June 1945.

    Firstly, I take umbrage with all the B-24 bad mouthing you write about. I’ve heard it all for years, most of it by people who have never flown in a B-24. Maybe I’m biased. The B-24 is the only operational aircraft I’ve ever flown. I thought it a pretty good airplane and disagree heartily with almost everything you wrote about it. It was somewhat hard on the controls but you learned to stay on top of that problem by keeping the trim always current. Later models had servo mechanisms which completely eliminated this problem. Steering while taxiing was a non problem. Compared with B-17s the Libs flew faster, further, higher and with a larger bomb load than B-17s. The cockpit was not crowded. They were reasonably aerodynamic. The 8th Air Force was made up of three division. Div 1 & 3 were B-17s. The 2nd AD was B-24’s. Most of the guys I knew from college who ended up flying heavy Bombers were in B-24s. 8th Air Force missions involved long hours, 10 to 12 , of formation flying at high altitude, 30,000 ft., on oxygen. Fatigue from handling the controls was not much of a factor. Your guys on search missions over the Pacific were probably flying under 10,000ft. On auto pilot. I was never aware of any of the guys I flew with complaining about the B-24 in the way you picture it.

    The events leading up to the Unbroken crew ditching is so full of pilot error I hardly know where to start. First, the pilot agreed to fly an unairworthy aircraft, one which had been relegated to the spare parts department and had some unexplained, serious fault of flying tail down which greatly reduced air speed and increase fuel consumption. I have no idea what the cause of this might be. Very strange but certainly not a plane I would fly on a long over water search flight.

    Next, the pilot and co-pilot decide to trade seats so the co-pilot could have some flying time from the left seat. I’ve never heard of anyone doing this. Why? The co-pilot is skilled at flying the plane from the right seat. On a search mission they would probably fly all the way on auto pilot. There just seems to be no point in this. My co-pilot had a lot of practice flying formation and landing from the right seat. In case something happened to me I wanted a good pilot to get me home. He was very good.

    Next they lose an engine and call on the flight engineer to feather the lost engine and eventually the wrong engine gets feathered and they are in big trouble and have to ditch. Huge pilot error. Why? Why call on the flight engineer to feather? This is a pilot/co-pilot responsibility. The flight engineer has no cockpit duties or training to prepare him for one of the most critical cockpit emergencies conceivable.

    I have difficulty understanding how a cockpit crew with a lot of experience behind them could screw up so badly on this fateful mission.

  426. Laura – I just finished reading “Unbroken”, and I need to thank you for researching and writing this story. The story itself is amazing, but the way you reaearched, wrote, and presented it is equally amazing. Thank you!

  427. Hello Laura. I just finished reading Unbroken for the 2nd time. The supplementary material in the back led me to your 2003 New Yorker article (A Sudden Illness). The description of your illness sounds very much like Lyme disease, which I have studied for the past 20 years. I was wondering if you had ever been thoroughly evaluated for Lyme (keeping in mind the problems with current testing). I have battled this illness for 5 years, and I am still learning how to live with this chronic illness. Best wishes!

  428. Laura, I recently finished Unbroken and I just wanted to thank you for your excellent treatment of the life of Louis Zamperini. Your research is impeccable and your storytelling masterful. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and look forward to the movie.

  429. Bravo!

  430. Laura, I wish you well. I enjoyed my 7 hours of reading your book. The stamina to live, amazing, I would have given up and died. Which brings me to my question, In Victor Franco’s book (the meaning of life ?)he kind of states that the people who had something to live for out side of themselves survived while those who didn’t died more often than not. Did Louis have “something to live for”? Thanks for your time.
    Fondest regards

  431. Really loved the book. My father is a WW11 vet! After I read this astonishing book I found out that Laura graduated from Kenyon College and I just so happen to be a cook there!

  432. The reviews were right. I received UNBROKEN as a Christmas gift and started reading it yesterday. Found it difficult to put it down. A GREAT book! It touched me in a special way because I too, lived on Gramercy Avenue in Torrance…two blocks north of the Zamperini home…and was blissfuly unaware of the history just down the street. For four years I worked in downtown Torrance and took my flying lessons at Torrance Municipal Airport aka Zamperini Field, earning my Private Pilot License there in 1983. Thank you, Laura, for enriching my life with your work.

  433. Thankfulness to my father who stated to me about this blog, this webpage is
    really awesome.

  434. Dear Ms. Hillenbrand,
    I have written several biographies of Canadians(I am a Canadian)who have endured trials and tribulations in their life’s experiences. It was because of this that I wanted to read your story on the life of Louis Zamperini.
    I was overwhelmed by your superb research and thrilling style of writing ( I felt I was in the raft with the three POW’s fighting the sharks). I had never heard of Mr. Zamperini before reading your book. You truly have brought his life- ‘to life’ for me. I particularly enjoyed what turned his life around, his faith in Christ. At age 21 I too became a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ and it changed my life as well.
    Again many thanks for an outstanding piece of work. I trust your health will improve. May the Lord bless you.

  435. Hi
    Mi name is Juan Carlos Vargas, I am a mexican journalist for the Excélsior Daily and i wish talk with Laura Hillenbrand about Loui Samperini. Is it possible by phone or e-mail?

  436. I am a retired Unitarian Universalist minister (served Cedar Lane UU Church in Bethesda 1986-1998). While on sabbatical in 1991, I collapsed with what was eventually diagnosed as CFS. It has been a twenty year struggle. I retired formally in 2012, but only worked part time in the intervening years. I have admired your work, appreciated your publicity about CFS and wanted to inform you of powerful and unusual techniques that have helped me
    significantly. I am now an energy healer trained by a person known to your sister Betsy/Lisa. I only wish to inform you about this if you are interested in hearing. Not looking for work! I have read enough of your story to believe that you could be helped significantly. Please contact me if you wish.

  437. In 1944, my father was the pilot of a Mitchell B-25 attack bomber. He flew 50 missions in the South Pacific. He was 20 years old – the oldest of 5 children whose father died when he was 9 years old, during the Great Depression. He never said much about his service – he just came home and got on with his life. Between the book and the movie, I have a better understanding of what he never talked about. Thank you Laura and Angelina.

  438. Having just finished reading Unbroken, hardback edition, I will share that it has impacted me as few books have. The emotions and tears I experienced as the story came alive through Laura Hillenbrand’s writing is hard to explain. I even dreamed of it. Through Louie’s life I experienced and learn intimately the unimaginable of the Pacific POW’s experience. THANK YOU Laura for persevering through your illness to give us such a gift as this book Unbroken!

  439. whoah this weblog is wonderful i love reading your posts.
    Keep up the great work! You realize, lots of people are
    hunting around for this information, you could
    help them greatly.

  440. Dear Laura:

    I just finished unbroken and I also saw the movie. The fact that The Bird hid for seven years is no excuse. Personaly, after reading your book I wanted to go and kill him myself. Not just for what he did to louie but to all the allied pows. He still should have been tried, convicted tortured for as long as he tortured pows than hung. I don’t know if the movie going public could handle the book. I felt a rage inside of me for this guy.
    Im 56 but my interest was always in ww2, particulary aviation. Those guys being 19-21 flying b-17 etc without instrument approaches and gps always amazed me. I fly so I can appreciate what they did as pilots.
    Laura, I pray you can overcome your illness. My hope is that this message will find its way to you.



  441. Avid read in my 20s of literature on both World Wars. So it’s been a while since filling up on this subject. Thank you for this book. It is great!

  442. P.S. I am 91 today.

  443. I read Unbroken with great interest because I was a WWII single and twin-engine fighter pilot in the Southwest Pacific. In the interests of accuracy I wish to make the following comments, which should have been noted by the pilots who reviewed your book:
    1. Page 117 Phil & Cupernell had only seconds to save the plane. The #1 engine had stopped and the prop had to be feathered so Cupernell shouts to the engineer to come to the cockpit to feather the engine, but he leans over and misakenly festhers #2 engine, which causes the plane to crash, killing most of the crew. All military pilots of multi-engine aircraft are trained how to shut down an engine and feather the prop before they ever take off. We had to pass a blindfold test and identify every switch and instrument in the plane and know immediately every emergency procedure. It takes literally leass than 5 seconds to shut down an engine and feather a prop. That is the pilot’s responsibility, not the flight engineer’s. Your book indicates the flight engineer was responsible for the crash. I do not believe that is what happened.
    2. On page 97 it says the weight of the stricken pilot on the yoke. All Japanese fighter planes had a stick or joystick, not a yoke. The only american fighter plane with a yoke was the twin-engine P-38 Lightning, which I flew.
    3. On p. 306 it states a torpedo bomber (obviously Navy)flew over the camp. The POWs could make out the pilot standing. Impossible. A pilot of a torpedo bomber canot open the canopy and stand in flight. Then it says the plane was doing loops. If so, it had to have been a fighter-bomber and the pilot was not standing.
    I hope you don’t think I am nit-picking, but any military pilot would notice these discrepancies. Your pilot reviewers should have caught them.
    With best wishes. Dino Cerutti (I am on Facebook and Google.)

  444. There’s definately a lot to find out about this issue.
    I like all of the points you’ve made.

  445. I just finished reading “Unbroken”, this is one the best books I ever read ( and I’m 68 and have read plenty ) Thank you for this book. I hate to admit this but prior to your book I didn’t know Louis Zamperini, now that it’s too late I would have loved just to speak with him. Again thank you for ” Unbroken”.

    Best regards
    Jack Baill

  446. Just finished “Unbroken”, I think this is the absolute best book I ever read ( and I’m 68 and have read a lot ).
    THANK YOU for this book !!!!
    At times it was hard to read , but also hard to put down.

  447. Useful info. Lucky me I discovered your site by chance, and I am stunned why this
    twist of fate did not took place earlier! I bookmarked it.

  448. Just reading the NYT Magazine story on you. I shouldn’t be doing so at work because I cannot stop crying. Your work is so meaningful. Thank you.

  449. Thank you for bringing to the attention of all Americans the suffering these men endured at the hands of the Japanese. They all deserve much more than they ever received from their own country. We owe them this kind of recognition & Thanks! Thank you again Rob Beard proud son of Sm/sgt. Robert L. Beard POW of the Japanese, and 29 year Veteran of the U S Airforce.

  450. Between reading your book and seeing the movie, a great activist has arisen from within. With such a powerful and most upsetting story I feel like we have to do something with this information to stop these atrocities from happening again. Is there anything that you or any of the people involved in the movie are doing to this regard? Is there any direction that you can suggest where I can take my energy to make a change? Thank you for writing such a difficult story so well.

  451. I very much enjoyed unbroken. As I read unbroken I could not help but wonder about Allen Phillips’s story as well. Did your research for this book give you any deeper insight into his story than is revealed in unbroken and if so do you plan to publish his story?

  452. What you said made a bunch of sense. But, consider
    this, suppose you added a little information? I ain’t
    saying your content is not good, but what if
    you added something that grabbed folk’s attention? I mean Laura Hillenbrand: Guestbook is
    kinda boring. You should look at Yahoo’s home page and watch
    how they create post headlines to get viewers to click. You might add a related
    video or a picture or two to get people excited about what you’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it would bring your posts a little bit
    more interesting.

  453. I rarely send fan mail, knowing that what I send is unlikely even to be read and therefore isn’t worth either the time or the electrons. In this instance, I feel compelled to do write. I completed reading Unbroken last night (and will see the movie soon). I whipped through the book, simply because I couldn’t put it down. The story verges on the unbelievable, and the telling of it is equally extraordinary. You have written two of my favorite books of all time. The fact that you did so while suffering from CFS makes your writing any book all the more remarkable. (I am a public health professor at the Univ. of Michigan. I have had two close colleagues who suffered from the disease, so I know that “chronic fatigue” is far from trivial, as you are quoted in the NY Times as worrying it might sound.) I do have one question, on the off chance that you see and respond to this: How much literary license did you take in writing Unbroken? There had to be some. At a minimum, it seems inconceivable that you could know specific dates for specific beatings Louie experienced (for example). I know you say in the acknowledgments section that he possessed an eerie ability to recall details with precision.

    In any case, thank you for a remarkably moving and educational experience. I am so glad that Louie got to see the film before its – and his – release. Coincidentally, my wife and I vacationed with our family in Hawaii over the holidays (taking our grandchildren to a Disney resort on Oahu) and we (the adults) visited Pearl Harbor. Reading your book has given new meaning to what I learned and experienced there. While I had heard about the brutality of the Japanese POW camps, I had no idea of how brutal they were. It is interesting that most of us think (justifiably) about the horror of the German concentration camps without realizing the at least comparable horror of the camps half way around the world.

    You have my deepest gratitude and admiration.

  454. Hi Laura!

    As an aspiring writer myself I want to start by saying how much I like your writing style. Even though I write fiction I love how your books read like stories. I haven’t read Seabiscuit yet but I am tackling Unbroken for the second time and your style is fantastic!

    I also read your essay on your battle with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and I must say you have no idea how inspiring your story is. I am affected with a neurological condition that left the left side of my body weaker than my right so I know all about having to adapt to accomplish your dreams too. I have overcome a lot like you and you are one of my role models in an author way as well as personal.

    Onto Unbroken, I just loved it. After seeing the movie I picked up the book again and started to read it again. I tell anyone who will listen about it. It truly is one of the few books I’ve read that changed my life. Although I never met Louie my grandpa met him in Houston when he came to speak there and said he was incredible. I wish I would have met him because he has become an inspiration to me. Whenever I’m having a bad day I think about Louie and I know I can get through anything. Thank you for sharing his story!

    Much love,

  457. Dear Laura,
    I have just finished your book “Unbroken” and have to say it is one of the sweetest stories I have read in a long time. Louie came to life for me on the pages and I felt I personally knew him. You really did your homework! The story was very well told. My heart breaks for all he survived in WW II and all that many families went through. We lost my Grandfather in WW II when my mother was a baby of 6 months old. He died on a date in January. On this date some 36 years later, my mother finally had a baby boy after having 4 daughters. The pain this family went through touched me I supposed because WW II deeply affected my mother and Grandmother. Thank you for giving me a glimpse into that era while we have vets living that can tell the story firsthand. What a gift! May God bless you!

  458. The movie was much like, ” The Railwayman”, but….it did not come together as convincingly…It was okay…

  460. I have just finished your book. I felt the need to tell you how much I enjoyed it. I didn’t have much background information about WWII prior to reading it. I was astonished to learn the things I did. Your book was also very powerful in another way. My husband’s grandfather served in WWII. He recently passed away, and up until the day he died he harbored an intense hatred of Japanese people. It never made sense to me. Now it does. Grandpa never talked much about the war other than to tell us how much he hated “the Japs”. Thank you for providing insight into his life. I am truly grateful.

  461. Hi Laura….First of all let me simply say your book moved me in a way no other has done…I read approx. 40 books a year and yours would be top 2 of my all time list..
    The level of detail describing what our veterans suffered for our freedom is overwhelming to say the least….
    Lastly your written abilities are seldom seen in today books…In reading the book I can almost feel your own personal suffering coming through the pages helping you better describe what Louis Zamperini experience…First time I have ever written a post however your book moved to thank you and those men of service that have given us our freedom…
    Hope you are feeling better…
    Thank you again

  462. Our Christian Book Club devoured Unbnroken. We had a lively discussion about many
    things concerning Louie’s incredible life. What a testimony to perseverance, endurance,
    and forgiveness.

    We have already read Seabiscuit and enjoyed it as well. You are a gifted writer.

  463. Dear Laura,

    Unbroken is a fabulous book, one of the best I have ever read, and you are to be congratulated on this great achievement. However, I just saw the movie, and it is a disappointment, especially the ending. It doesn’t begin to do justice to your book. I think Angelina should retire from directing, and stick to acting.

  464. Having recently seen the movie Unbroken, I just want to tell the author Lauren Hillenbrand how sorry I am for the way the film told the story of Louie. I absolutely loved her book and how she told the well-researched story of his life. What she did and the movie did not was to tell about him before the War and definitely how it affected his life after the War.

    I realize the War had a huge impact on his life but it would have been very nice for people who had not read the book to find out what happened once he came home. The way he lived his life took real courage and Lauren presented that story so well.

    I would categorize the movie as a War film and the book was so much more.

    Thank you. Looking forward to anything Lauren writes in the future.

  465. I plan to get the book and see the movie what mrs hillendbrand may not realize the impact she could have on the pursuing of a cure for CDs. For the rest of us who suffer with the illness it is very frustrating when so little progress is made on finding a cure and we all wish we were famous so we could help speed up the cure. Also other sufferers are curious as to what you are doing to be able to do even as much as you do. It feels like you have just rolled over and accepted CFCs without trying to find a cure. I’m not feeling the empathy for fellow sufferers who have not given up on a cure. We feel like doctors have given up also. With your success you could be a voice for finding a cure for this torturing disease!

  466. I have read your books and interviews overthw years. I thorougly enjoy anything you write and relate to your physical struggles. I was diagnosed over ten years ago with CFS. I suspect you have investigated many recommended therPies; haven’t we all? I recently developed vertigo and wonder if it is related to CFS. Have you tried some of the therapies covered online–exercises to relieve vertigo. Again, I imagined you have known about them. I wish you well in your struggles to find something which will help you live in the larger world!!

  467. After I read Seabiscuit I told my wife that the first thing I’m going to do when I get to heaven is ride Seabiscuit. Now that will be the second thing I do, right after I talk to Louie. Well done.

  468. Hi Laura, before I make my statement; you mentioned on a recent video interview that you were working on another project that was the Biggest story at the time when it occurred, but shortly became old news, obscured and forgotten. *Would that possibly be the riots in Tulsa, Oklahoma 5/31 – 6/1 1921 where over 1,000 homes and other buildings in the African American neighborhood of Greenwood were destroyed by raging whites, 300 to 500 African Americans were killed? Now my comment on “Unbroken” I, and several members of my family owe you and Louis Zamperini a HUGE debt of gratitude!. I am 65 and my eyes misted over many times as I read about the tremendous abuse Louis suffered at the hands of his Japanese captors. The book gave me an entirely new perspective of the privations and brutality perpetrated on our men and women in uniform. I learned so much, i.e. many, many more American pilot and crew lives were lost during training in the States than in combat. It showed how desperately America pulled together to meet the very real possibility of annihilaltion by a foreign power(s). Army Air Corpsmen and the companies who built the planes did not have the luxury of time to thoroughly train and test air crews and their fighters, bombers, rescue planes etc. Our culture in society today really has no idea what “Tough Times” are and I put myself at the top of that list. I know that MANY lives will be changed for the better because of your diligence in researching and writing the book and Louis Zamperini’s everyday heroism in facing dire circumstances where he was at the COMPLETE mercy of savage soldiers who demonstrated a disdain for human life on an incredibly large scale that I hope and pray will never be experienced by the World again. Terrorism has a good shot at it, but I am hoping that due to your amazing book, we Americans will take the necessary steps within our Military, Legislative and Excutive Powers (and the voting booth)to make sure “Never Again” Thank you again Laura for showing in such detail the Best Side of Americans in real danger. I will never forget you or Louis Zamperini. Most sincerely, John C. Boyer Phoenix, AZ. Sgt. USAF 1967 to 1971. *If that is right, out of possibly thousands of stories, I swear myself to secrecy.

  469. i have read many books in my life, but have never felt the need to comment to the author. I was so involved with the story I felt I knew Louie. The research was obviously intense, the story fascinating, while being horrifying at the same time. I was so relieved by the happy ending.
    Thank you for a wonderful experience. This should encourage us all to be strong, persevere, and overcome. Nothing will likely happen to most of us anywhere near Louie’s experience, but he set the example.
    Wonderful book!
    Thank you.

  471. Dear Laura,

    I recently went to “Unbroken” and will admit that as I sat in the truck following the film, I broke down in tears. I had never been touched by a film like that before. Finishing your book minutes ago, I feel the filmmakers barely scratched the surface regarding the atrocities our POWs suffered in the Pacific.
    My uncle, Orin Clel McCreedy, a Water Tender 2nd Class was captured following the fall of Corregidor on May 7th, 1942. The minesweeper he was aboard was sunk by shore fire from the Bataan peninsula on May 4th.
    Corregidor POWs traveled to Manila on boats and then on trains to Cabanatuan POW Camp, north of Manila. After spending about five months there, Clel along with approximately 1600 POWs, boarded an old Japanese freighter in Manila named Tottori Maru and proceeded to sail for Japan by way of Formosa and Pusan, Korea. Some were bound for the infamous Mukden POW Camp in Mukden, Manchuria and some were heading to Japan. Later known as “Hell ships”, these unmarked freighters carried thousands of POWs to forced labor “POW” camps, all over the territory that Japan controlled. On November 8, 1942 the Tottori Maru docked at Pusan, Korea and approximately 1200 of the POWs disembarked. They, along with some British and Canadians were then transported, by train to the POW Camp at Mukden, Manchuria. Orin Clel McCreedy died December 6th, 1942 in Pusan, or Keijo (now Seoul) POW Camp Korea enroute to Mukden POW Camp, Manchuria. The cause of death is listed as dysentery, beriberi and an intestinal obstruction. His remains were returned to the United States in 1948 or 1949 and were escorted to Missoula, MT by my Father.
    As graphic as the book is, one still cannot comprehend the unbelievable manner in which these members of the Greatest Generation were treated. We Boomers, our children and their children’s children should never forget their sacrifices.
    Thank you for taking the time and effort to thoroughly research and write this important story.

    As graphic as the book is, one still cannot comprehend the unbelievable manner in which these members of the Greatest Generation were treated. We Boomers, our children and their children’s children should never forget their sacrifices.

    Thank you for taking the time and effort to thoroughly research and write this important story.

  473. Dear Luara,

    I’m emailing you to say thanks for for bringing Louie zamperinis story public and writing a book about it. Because of you I know who he is. I’m a runner so when I read your book it meant more to me then I think it will ever to most people. Louie is and always will be my hero. I can safely say I think about him once a day. Ide like to talk to you more about everything. Please email me back.



  474. Dear Laura,

    I just finished reading Unbroken. I am not a big reader of novels, but because I love Billy Graham and all he stands for, knew the movie was coming out. I wanted to read your book prior to seeing it.

    I absolutely could not put the book down and am so grateful to you for putting the endless hours of research in to getting the story right and telling ALL of it, not just the Hollywood version.

    I already know that the movie does not do justice to Louie’s life as to what so profoundly took place in it after he became a Christian as a result of attending the 1949 Billy Graham Crusade in Los Angeles.

    However, your book explained that miracle it in detail and so many readers are profoundly grateful to you for including it. In fact, I have a feeling that just as you wrote on page 397 what Louie’s last line in his letter to The Bird said, “hope that you would also become a Christian”, others may BECAUSE you do not leave the MOST IMPORTANT part of his life out of your book.

    Thank You and God Bless You,

    PS If your readers do not already know, there is a DVD based on Louie Zamperini’s entire life called Capture by Grace. It can ordered online at http://www.Billy or by calling 1-877-247-2426

  475. Dear Mrs. Hillenbrand,
    The first I heard of your book ‘Unbroken’ is when I saw a movie trailer for it. At the time, I thought the movie looked interesting, so when I found out it was a book, I was extremely curious about what it was like. (I believe that you should read the book before the movie.) After Christmas, I went right to Barnes & Noble (where I spend most of my money anyway) and bought ‘Unbroken.’ It’s been two weeks and I just now finished the book. I literally closed the book and just stared at the wall for a moment. I can’t even describe how that book made me feel. Let me be the first to say that I am NOT an emotional person, but your book had me in tears several times.
    Just last year I learned about WWII, but we focused more on Hitler’s/Nazi concentration camps, so I didn’t know much about POW camps. I’m glad I’ve read your book because it opened my eyes to how much our own citizens and allies went through back then. I hope to see the movie based off your book this weekend. I also learned while reading this that you have chronic fatigue syndrome, and I cannot imagine how hard it was for you to write this book, but let me assure you that you did a fantastic job!
    Overall, I loved your book! It was so beautifully written and captivating. I hope others will read ‘Unbroken’ too. Thank you for writing such a wonderful story.
    P.S. I’m also extremely upset that Louis Zamperini passed away last summer. I hope that he is happy up there with our Creator.

  476. Hello, Laura. I’ve just finished ‘Unbroken’ and found it an incredible book that not only was captivating beyond my expectation, it has changed me and the way I view World War II. I was one of those people who only had a sketchy sense of what happened in the pacific and your book was very enlightening. I greatly appreciate the amount of time and research you put into this book. As a writer myself, I know how much work that is, and how tedious it is to pour over hours of reading for one little useful bit of information. I cannot imagine having to do it with the physical restrictions you had to endure during its completion. It was well worth the effort. You have penned a classic, which will change many readers, just as it has changed me. Well done, and thank you.

  477. Dear Laura.

    Thank you for this book. Unbroken is a story that I think needs to be told and retold so we know history. A couple of books I appreciate came to mind as I read Unbroken and I wonder if you have come across them. One is, ‘The Short Life of Sophie Scholl’, by Hermann Vinke and the other, ‘To End All Wars’, by Ernest Gordon. The quote from Iris Chang reminded me of Nanking and how her work is helpful in understanding how we have got to the present. When the ‘Crusades’ and ‘The Inquisition’ are mentioned I think of Rodney Stark and his work on presenting those events accurately.

    All that is good. David Clark.

  478. I felt a compelling need to write and offer my condolences on the atrocious job done to your beautiful novel in the movie version. every important issue you addressed was apparently thought inconsequential and scenes done better in The Life of Pi and john Wayne’s war movies were agonizingly presented, while redemption and forgiveness were given a “p. s.” at the end of the movie – I am so sorry and can only hope that those who see the film will get the book and then understand the significance of your message.
    thank you for sharing your gift.

  479. Dear Laura, My husband and I have just finished reading Unbroken, and I am compelled to say thank you for your work. As an author, I know how much it means to have a reader give a thumbs up, and although I am sure you have had an overabundance of them, I feel honored to be among them. I cannot remember when I’ve read every word of a novel, and then continued through the acknowledgments so that I would not miss one word. Bless you and your work! Sincerely, Sandra Lund (and Tom – my husband could not stop saying how well written the book was, and so I picked it up when he was through).

  480. I tried to send my comments to BOTH the Email address at the back of the book. I’ve been unsuccessful. My I have an operating Email or mail address. Thank you.

  482. I simply couldn’t tear myself away from Unbroken. Thank you for compiling this unbelievable story into such an enjoyable and touching book.

  483. Seabiscuit was a great book, have read it several times now. Plan on getting Unbroken. I really appreciate the way you develop the story and each character. How about a book on Dan Patch, famous 1900′s harness race horse? Just saw the movie(1949) on free TV. Reading about the horse on the web, it appears to have some of the same popular at the time notoriety and following of Seabiscuit. That long ago, the story information research path could be kind of grown over, though.

    If everything goes as planned, I will be sending Part 10 of this series (which covers the topics you mention) next Wednesday at around 9 pm UTC -03:00. Hope that will give you enough time to review it in preparation for your exam. Please stay tuned, and kindly take a couple of minutes after your exam with your feedback as to whether these tutorials were relevant in your preparation. That will be most appreciated.

  486. This is the best life story I have ever a
    Learned about. Thank you for sharing this with us. And thank you to all that has served and had to suffer so that we do not.

  487. Looking forward to many more reads – will use Unbroken for next book club selection.

  488. Ms. Hillenbrand,
    We are high school students from Houston and were deeply affected by your book “Unbroken”. It inspired us in many ways since we both run cross country and track. Louis’ amazing talent and ability is so motivating and his perseverance throughout his life reveals so much about human will power. Louis’ story was truly awe-inspiring, but YOU were the one who who brought his story to life and shared it with the world. We want to thank you so much for relating his remarkable experiences with us and inspiring our lives.
    You are truly amazing and we love you.
    Ellie and Julia, your biggest fans
    P.S. Ellie is reading Seabiscuit and she loves it.

  489. Thank-you Laura for writing such a profoundly riveting book as UNBROKEN. I have just finished reading the story of Louis Zamperini. Up until the point where Louis is beleaguered by the emotional scars of his war experience and looks like his marriage is about to dissolve, I wondered if the story would end positively. His encounter with the Billy Graham ministry and the possibility of forgiving your enemies and of a life change from within, it is like Louis begins his life again. Thank-you for your courage in telling the story truthfully and for giving us the profound hope that no person who has experienced post-traumatic stress disorder needs to live in the hopeless nightmares and flashbacks of war experiences. There is hope and our war vets need to hear the story of hope and redemption, forgiveness and new life!

  490. Hello Laura,

    Your book Unbroken touch me so deeply. The only other book I have been able to read concerning the Pacific veterans and POWs has been Ghost Soldiers. I am the niece of a Wake POW survivor. His story was much like that of Louis that at times I had to put it down as I did reading Ghost Soldiers due to emotions personally effecting me. My uncle was invited to return to Wake which he made as far as Hawaii with his elder son, only to tell him that he could not make that final flight to Wake. So his son flew there with the other men in his place. My Uncle raise a wonderful family and those of his extended family with many issues like those men who returned after the war from their POW experiences at the hands of Japanize. Your book was one that touched me personally due to my uncle and how he shared his life with us. Thanks so much for telling this story and sharing it with the world. My Uncle’s name was Hoyle Chew USMC (ret.)

  491. Hello Laura

    I enjoyed both Seabiscuit and Unbroken! Looking forward to you next book.

    I saw your recent interview on Fox. I wanted to share that as a person with uncontrolled epilepsy, I identify with strong will of the characters in both stories!

    Great job!

  492. I would like for Ms. Hillenbrand to assist me with writing my person story. I am international, American interior designer, who was working in the Middle East when I was scammed on the internet by a romance scammer. I lost my entire savings for the love of a lie. I am back in the states, unemployed and broke. The biggest global problem is NOT Ebola, health epidemics, nor global warming, nor wars and terrorist. It is internet scammers.
    Please assist me.

  493. We found Seabiscuit a few years agoand bought the video tape. We then bought the book, and also gifted it to our nephew and lent our copy to others. What an inspiration this was. What an inspiration you are!
    Your writing about endurance and being an outsider (even though you live so much inside), speak about your fierce commitment and courage to your writing, your thoroughly amazing research, and the glorious storytelling you have developed. Now I am romping through Unbroken while on holiday. It is SO compelling. We have just realised that the movie is now on our horizon here in New Zealand. How amazing is that. While we appreciate the enormous pain and unimaginable suffering Louie and is mates went through, you so beautifully honour him, and in writing this story over 10 years, you show an equal measure to your own spirit.
    We are so pleased and proud you have Flanagan alongside you..

  494. It is my desire to pass along to Ms. Hellenbrand my most sincere thanks and appreciation for her excellent work in the writing of Unbroken. I first read the book several years ago, and have purchased dozens of copies to give to friends and loved ones.

    Having grown up in the Los Angeles area in the 40’s, 50’s, and 60’s, I am very aware of the exploits of Louie Zamperini, and was familiar with his story and influence in the community, and throughout the country.

    Having read Laura Hillenbrand’s account of Louie’s life story, I was most anxious to see the film, and especially to see the most significant aspect of his life that made “forgiveness” and “release” from Louie’s many addictions possible, including the restoration of a failing marriage.

    However, I was disappointed that that segment of Louie’s life didn’t make it to the screen. Although I understand there are only so many “details” that can be sandwiched into a theatrical presentation, that detail is what made Louie’s life relevant. Hopefully, people who see the film will be motivated to find out “the rest of the story”, and purchase a copy of Laura’s book.

    In the meantime, it occurred to me that Ms. Hillenbrand may have another opportunity to consider an equally impressive and remarkable story of the life of Bruce Olson.

    In order to provide a brief, and yet succinct bio of Mr. Olson’s story, I have added a some “highlights” of his life. However, the most compelling narrative would be to read his own personal biography entitled, Bruchko.

    For years I have been convinced that a well written book of Bruce Olson’s life would make a great reading experience, but also a great movie experience. It has intrigue … drama … romance … action … and is socially redeeming.

    Just thought I would pass along my appreciation, and encourage Ms. Hillenbrand to consider such a project.

    Brief Bio of Bruce Olson:

    Bruce Olson (b. November 10, 1941) is a Scandinavian American Christian missionary who is best known for his pioneering work in bringing Christianity to the Motilone Indians of Colombia and Venezuela. His story is told in his autobiographies Bruchko and Bruchko and the Motilone Miracle.

    Early life
    Bruce Olson was born in 1941 in Saint Paul, Minnesota, the younger of two sons of Marcus and Inga Olson. His father was an investment banker, and his mother was a socialite. Gifted in languages, at an early age Olson learned Greek and Latin. When Olson was 14 years old, he experienced Christian conversion, the experience of being born again, while reading the New Testament. He had seen God as a stern, judgmental figure, and became very critical of Lutheran churches. Then in Luke 19:10, Olson encountered another depiction of God: “For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.” Olson had known that he was lost – separated from God by his sins. But here he discovered that God wanted to find him. That night, Bruce Olson spoke to Jesus, and asked Jesus to satisfy him with the same peace and fulfillment that he had read about in the lives of Jesus’ apostles. He asked Jesus to help him be a person who pleases God. From that moment on, Olson’s life was changed.
    At the age of 16, Olson attended his first missionary conference, at the church he began to attend after his conversion. The missionary speaker, a Mr. Rayburn, spoke of his work with the people of New Guinea. Rayburn challenged the congregation to realize that people around the world were starving and dying, separated from Jesus by their sins. Rayburn challenged them to not only put money in the collection plate to help these people, but to go themselves. At that moment, Olson knew that God wanted him to become a missionary to the Indians of South America.
    In the fall of 1959, Olson enrolled in Penn State, transferring to the University of Minnesota a year later to study linguistics. In the meantime, Olson applied to several missions boards, but was rejected as a missionary candidate. But in early 1961, at the age of 19, and over the objections of his parents, Olson left college, bought a plane ticket to Venezuela. At the time, he spoke no Spanish, and had only a few dollars in his hand.

    Shortly after arriving in Venezuela, Olson heard about the Motilones, a violent stone-age tribe living on the borders of Venezuela and Colombia that had been in the news because of violent clashes with oil company employees, seeking to drill on their land. No one in the outside world knew anything about Motilone culture, their language or their life. Olson felt a strong pull towards making contact with the Motilones.

    Work with the Barí
    Until the 1960s, the Motilone had little contact with the outside world. They believed in the existence of a single God, and that evil spirits existed in the world. But they believed that God had rejected them for deceiving Him. A man named Sacamaydodji had come to them, claiming to be a prophet, saying that he could take them over the horizon to a better land. They left God and followed him, but eventually came to believe that Sacamaydodji had been a false prophet, and regretted walking away from God. Still, they had a prophecy that a tall man with yellow hair would come with a banana stalk, and that God would come out of the banana stalk.
    With much difficulty, and after being shot with Motilone arrows, Olson began to live with the Motilone in 1962, learning their language and culture. For one thing, he discovered that the name “Motilone” was a Spanish name for the tribe, meaning “people of short hair.” The Motilone call themselves “Barí,” which means “people” in their tongue. As he grew more and more familiar with the tribe,Olsen got the nickname Bruchko given to him by the Motilone. He began to see ways he could help them. The Barí were subject to the ravages of diseases, to shortages in food supply during the rainy season, and to contacts with the outside world that threatened to destroy the Barí and their way of life. Olson began his work by befriending the tribe’s medicine woman. Olson realized that for him to bring cures to the people would undermine the traditional authority structure in their culture. During an epidemic of pink eye, he watched the medicine woman chanting over the afflicted, asking God to heal them. Olson asked her about the cure, and she sighed, saying that she chanted, but God would not help them, since they had deceived God. Olson went out of the house, and asked an old man afflicted with pink eye if he could touch the corners of his eyes. The old man agreed, and Olson smeared some of the old man’s infected tears into his own eyes. Olson quickly developed pink eye himself, and went to the medicine woman for help. She chanted over him, but the pink eye was not cured.
    Olson gave her some antibiotic ointment, and asked her to apply the ointment to his eyes while she chanted a new chant – perhaps because he was an outsider, the old chant didn’t work on him. Within a few days, the pink eye had cleared up. The medicine woman tried the new chant on others of the afflicted, with no results. Then she asked Olson for his “potion,” and sure enough, when she applied the antibiotic and the chant, the pink eye was eradicated. Her success elevated her status in the eyes of the tribe, and cemented Olson’s bond with her.
    Within the tribe, Olson formed a pact with a young man named Bobarishora, becoming adoptive brothers together. The two worked together, visiting many Barí villages, and helping the medicine men and women establish health centers, following the same strategy of introducing change through the village’s existing authority structure rather than undermining it.
    Initially, some of the Barí had wondered if Olson might be the tall man with yellow hair from the prophecy, but as he did not carry a banana stalk, they soon abandoned that belief. One day in 1965, Olson’s pact-brother Bobarishora cut open a banana stalk, and the leaves inside splayed out, like the pages of a book. Olson pointed to his Bible and said, “This is God’s banana stalk!” Olson recounted a Barí legend he had learned, about a Barí man wanting to help a group of ants build a good home, but because he was so big and different, the ants scattered in fear. Miraculously, the man was transformed into an ant, and as an ant, he was able to show the other ants how to improve their home. Olson used that story to describe how God became incarnate in Jesus, and “walked our trail.” Olson described the death of Jesus, and his resurrection, and told the Barí that the Bible tells the story of Jesus.
    Many nights later, Bobarishora asked Olson how he could walk on Jesus’ trail. Olson had difficulty explaining “faith” in the Barí language. Olson reminded Bobarishora of one of his first celebrations with the tribe, when he was afraid to climb into one of the high-strung hammocks loved by the Barí, to swing free and sing songs with the tribe. He had wanted to keep one foot on the ground, but Bobarishora had told him that he could only sing if he was fully suspended in the hammock. Olson said, “That is how it is when you follow Jesus, Bobby (Bobarishora). No man can tell you how to walk His trail. Only Jesus can. But to find out you have to tie your hammock strings into Him and be suspended in God.” Two days later, Bobarishora told Olson, “Bruchko, I’ve tied my hammock strings into Jesus. Now I speak a new language.” For the Barí, “language” is equivalent to life. Bobarishora spoke of having a new life, suspended in Jesus.
    Months later, at the tribe’s Festival of the Arrows, a time of pact-making and story-telling, Bobarishora was challenged to a singing competition by an older chief named Adjibacbayra. Climbing into a single hammock, the two men sang alternating lines, and Bobarishora sang about how the Barí had been deceived by Sacamaydodji, but that Jesus had walked the Barí’s trail to lead them back to God. The song lasted over ten hours, but the effect was startling. The entire tribe accepted the song about Jesus. Soon, the song had spread to other Barí villages, at other Festival of Arrows. Within months, virtually the entire Barí people had accepted a contextualized version of Christianity.
    Current estimates are that 70% of the Barí people are now Christians.
    As Olson’s work with the Barí grew, he helped them establish a written language, schools, community health centers, and even to work with the Colombian government to protect Barí lands. As Barí young people began to be fluent in both Barí and in Spanish, they studied to become doctors, lawyers, and other professionals, but brought their expertise back to the tribe, using it from within their culture.

    Bruce Olson is a linguist and graduate of sociology from a South American university. He speaks fifteen languages. His findings have appeared in prestigious linguistic journals. He has pioneered in computer translation of tribal languages.

    As a close personal friend of the four presidents of Colombia, he has appeared before the United Nations and the Organization of American States and received many honors for his contributions to the medical and social well-being of South American Indians. His first book, Bruchko, has sold more than 300,000 copies worldwide. He lives in the jungle on the border of Colombia and Venezuela.

  495. Just finished reading “Unbroken”. In some places I laughed, in others I cried. Only one word sums it up. WONDERFUL.

  496. I enjoy, lead to I discovered exactly what I was having a look for.
    You’ve ended my four day long hunt! God Bless you
    man. Have a great day. Bye

  497. Thank you, Ms. Hillenbrand, for writing such a poignant book. It’s fantastic on so many levels. In reading your book, I experienced an onslaught of an incredible array of emotions. A precious book!

  498. I have read both books and seen both movies. She is brilliant. How she captured these two stories, as she puts it, slipped through the cracks is amazing. And through the adversity she suffers…wow.

  499. I was excited to discover this page. I wanted to thank you for
    ones time due to this wonderful read!! I definitely loved every little bit of it and i
    also have you book-marked to look at new information on your site.

  500. I like the helpful information you provide for your articles.
    I will bookmark your weblog and test once more
    here frequently. I’m fairly certain I’ll be told a lot of new stuff proper
    here! Good luck for the next!

  501. Very well written review and sentiment. I could not have said it better and could not agree more!

  502. I had given up on contemporary writing. I tasted The Da Vinci Code and spat it out after the first bite. I tried Fifty Shades and trashed it in disgust. No matter how promising the premise or glowing a friend’s recommendation, I picked up book after book and they were all dead messes of cliche, lifeless metaphor, and just plain poor writing.

    I went back to my Kipling, convinced that all the writers who knew how to make prose breathe were dead.

    And then enlightenment, of all places, in the local Walmart – a few days after Christmas 2014, I picked up Unbroken, read the preface, and was owned. I devoured the story in great gulps of two and three hours at a time, hiding from household chores and children. Here was writing that bit, breathed and soared, smelled, tasted and gripped. Here was masterful storytelling, and, as though any more was wanted, also superb scholarship.

    The thread of great writing through the ages is not broken, the torch not dropped – there is Laura Hillenbrand.

  503. I got the book Unbroken for Christmas this year! I have just started reading it and can hardly put it down. My dad just passed away this past March and he too was a WWII POW survivor! What a hero he is to me and reading about the incredible story of Zamperini reminds me of the kind of ‘survivor’ fighter spirit my own dad was!


  504. Thanks you…

    My father was a WWII veteran of the Pacific theater, and twice Post Commander of our local American Legion. I used to go with my father when he worked on the monthly newsletter. I still remember the names of those Legion men, from so many years ago. I also called BINGO at the Legion on Thursday nights from age 10 to 13 or so. I always arrived for work very early (a habit I’ve maintained to this day) and would walk the Legion hall, looking at the pictures of the Gold Star Mothers Memorial…the faces of the men who saved the world.

    Many thanks for your fitting and fantastic tribute to the Greatest Generation.

  505. Laura,
    I just finished Unbroken and also read about your struggles with illness. I’m writing to let you know that Louie’s story as well as your own have given me a renewed strength and have provided me with inspiration in dealing with a disabling illness. I have a form of dysautonomia that sounds very similar to your illness. I went from having a very active lifestyle to being bedridden for months at a time interspersed with periods of partial but never full recovery. I have lived in this state for years and have been told there is no cure, and it is often challenging to find any hope or joy as the days and years go by. I just want to thank you for giving me some inspiration to not give up. If you can write books while battling your illness and if Louie could keep going while enduring all that he did, then it makes me think that I can keep trying, even it all it means is that I get out of bed on some days and sit in a chair. Thank you most sincerely!

  506. An incredible and inspiring book – I LOVED it. I’m glad there is now a place on the web (this site) where positive feedback can be offered. I read the book in 2011 and could not find a place on the web at that time to express my enthusiasm.

    Thanks Ms. Hillenbrand for writing the book. And thanks Ms. Jolie for turning it into a movie. I expect to see the movie soon.

  507. Just saw movie…well done…amazing story

  508. Thank you so much for this wonderful book. Louis by his wonderful spirit has taught me the importance of “fighting the fight” and never giving up. I hope that when I receive trials as Louis had that I may be able to rise above them.

    May we all follow Louis’ great example.

  509. Wow! I can hardly get through a magazine article but I couldn’t put Unbroken down. I thought I would read it because my Dad was a World War II Tail Gunner in a B-26 Bomber. His plane was shot down, he was 1 of 3 survivors and was taken prisoner of war by the Germans. It is hard to imagine what service men and women go through in time of war and especially what they endure as Prisoners of War. This book makes you feel as if you are right there with them. AMAZING BOOK!!

  510. Thank you for Unbroken, I am not a big reader, but your book was well done and I could not stop until it was finished.

    I was born in 1960 and my father was in the Korean war. I remember my parents watching Billy Graham and stories of WW II.

    I hope you continue to write and feel well. Great job on the book.

  511. Thank you for Unbroken. I now understand why my father who served in the Pacific felt the way he did about Japenese and refused to talk to us about the war. He passed away at 43 while I was in high school. I read the entire book aloud so my husband and I could share the story. We loved it!

  512. In mid 1980′s, wife and I afflicted with Epstein barr mono- chronic fatigue syndrome. MD said hopeless- Came to research Dr Lius Pawling seminal book on Vit C- Put self thru protocaol of a 6 week bell curve of Vitamin ranged from 3 gms to 12 gms daily- Symptoms ended after 6 weeks dose of 3 to 4gm daily since. Believe his book “How to live longer…” secured Pulitzer prize. Good luck.

  513. Your story and that of Mr. Zamperini has been of such strength to me. I lost my wife of 28 years to ALS in 2013 and have been struggling with how to go on. I have a heart condition plus other health issues and have been feeling sorry for myself and asking if there is any future (an uncomfortable word). “I have to detach myself completely from aspirations….” & “I’d made it this far and refused to give up….” Thanks for the courage this day! in my prayers, Mike

  514. Just finished the book…the first on my new e-reader.

    An outstanding accounting of the life, perils, trials, tribulations and ultimate redemption of a truly amazing man! Society owes you, and all of your team, a huge thank you for your efforts to assemble this story and bring it to light. So many of “that generation” served their country; came home; and chose not to talk about what they’d experienced – good, bad or horrifying! “Unbroken” captures a slice of what took place and preserves it for future generations to read, such that they may be reminded of just how cruel we humans can be … and, ultimately, how forgiving and resilient we can also be.

    Thank you again…I enjoyed every page!

  515. Laura, all my coworkers here in St. Louis are reading your book and everyone I know is taking their families to see the movie! Very powerful message! Thanks for sharing Louie’s story!

  516. Could you tell me the name of the region and town in Italy that Louis’ parents came from?

    Thank you,

    Josephine Versace

  517. Dear Laura,
    I am a mother of a 15 year old daughter who has an illness similar to yours. For a couple of years she had the wrong diagnosis and struggled terribly with pain, weakness, fatigue, brain fog and a host of other symptoms. I wanted to write to you because your symptoms sound similar and i can’t help but wonder if you may have the same illness?? I know it is extremely presumptuous of me! However, if you do have the same illness, and it can help you feel better, then it is worth the risk. My daughter was diagnosed with P.O.T.S (Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome) which is a form of Dysautonomia (a dysfunction of the Autonomic Nervous System). You are an amazing researcher, so i’m thinking you can easily research this if you think it might fit your symptoms. Please forgive me for any offense this may cause you. But I wish someone would have suggested this illness to us earlier so my daughter wouldn’t have suffered for so long. Anyhooo, thank you for your book and sharing your story too. You are truly an inspiration to myself and my daughter. Sincerely, Angi

  518. Dear Laura,
    Thank you for the tireless effort you put into researching and writing Unbroken. I could not put it down. A few years ago I finished my Master’s degree in History, which made me completely amazed and appreciative of your “Notes” section. I realized that I was likely in the minority of people that even read let alone appreciated notes and ibids so I thought you would like to know. Your book has encouraged me to pull out my old files and begin expanding my thesis research into a bigger work. Thank you you for your words, research, and inspiration.

  519. Dear Laura, I’m so inspired by your story and your determinations to find ways around your symptoms especially vertigo and complete two inspirational books. I also suffer from severe vertigo for the past three years and have had to modify my life completely to work and “live” around it. I can appreciate what it took to measure your energy level each day as to not increase your vertigo and keep a level of concentration. I also can’t look at my computer terminal for more than 10 minutes without feeling the swaying movements of vertigo and can no longer look at any bright lights in general. The vertigo at times has left me leveled with fear yet I keep trying to re group and move forward.The simplest of things: conversations, reading, crowds all trigger my vertigo ~ and that is why I so understand what it took for you to write. I would love for you to write a book about your own life and the exceptional way you never let this illness block your path. Warm Regards Judy N.Y.

  520. Dear Laura,
    I am sorry for the suffering you have endured. I am one of many who has suffered. Never give up hope. When my daughter was married, i couldn’t dance at her wedding. It was challenging to enjoy every day life.

    I totally crashed10 years ago. Doctors kept prescribing steroids and other challenging drugs. Nearly 3 years ago, i crashed again. . . Leukemia. I spent the next 10 months in isolation. I received a bone marrow transplant that changed my life. My new cord blood cells gave me another chance at life. Some day they will treat other disease with bone marrow transplants. I no longer have rhematoid arthritis or hemaphelia.

    I pray you will be renewed and wake up one day beginning a new physical life. You are grounded in your marriage and also as an outstanding author.

    May you be healed and blessed for being a blessing to others.

    D. Arnold

  521. I am a Rotarian for more than 20 years and a member of my former Rotary Club, Harry Fenton, was in the Navy during the war against Japan. He hated the Japs, as he would say because of the experiences he went through and saw. In fact, he was witness to the Japanese surrender in Tokyo Bay. Years later, he too sought redemption via having a Japanese Exchange student from Osaka,Japan stay with him during her senior HS year here. Yumi Shubitani was the student’s name. Unfortunately, she was tragically killed in an auto accident and at her memorial service, everyone spoke about Yumi’s infectious smile. Her father then acknowledged the same by saying how grateful he was to hear so many people speak about his daughter’s smile because he taught her at a very young age to always greet someone with a smile and you will get entrance into their hearts. As I read Unbroken, I could not help to think about Yumi and of my dear friend Harry. Congrats in the publishing of a great book…and its movie.

  522. My heart grieves when I read of all the CFS suffering you have endured for almost 30 years. In 1993, I founded Hope Now For Youth, which has lifted 2000 gang young men from the streets into the American mainstream. Part of their transformation from fighters and shooters involves healing the toxic stress of horrible childhoods through an Assessment I developed. In dealing more recently with women with Autoimmune Disorders, I have found that symptoms are relieved with the same Assessment. I have yet to find someone with AD who has had a healthy childhood. What appears to be happening in AD is that normal adult stresses when added to unresolved childhood stresses pushes the body over its limit, resulting in internalized bodily symptoms, externalized relational violence, or both. If this makes any sense and if I can be of help, please contact me.

  523. Dear Ms. Hillenbrand. I watched your Face The Nation interview with great interest and resonance. I am a writer and normally write magazine articles as well as crime novels. In September of this year however, I published my first biography. It is an authorized biography of Ken Osmond, the actor who played the iconic character Eddie Haskell on the TV show Leave it to Beaver. It was a great experience, and I was could relate so well to your process of digging deep and fact checking. As Mr. Zamperrini had stated to you,. Ken Osmond also informed me that I found out things about his life that he never knew! If you would like, I’d like to send you a signed copy of the book as my gift to you for bringing so many amazing stories to the world.
    Thank you.
    Christopher J. Lynch

  524. Dear Laura,
    I was so impressed with your 60 Minutes interview. Just making the decision and effort to appear took courage.
    Thank you for uncovering and covering these inspiring stories, including your own.
    Good luck on your new story!

  525. My daughter contacted chronic fatigue in her early 20s. She had been very athletic and healthy. A doctor in San Diego suggested that she take large quantities of Vit C in crystal form, mixed with juice or other liquid. It worked.

  526. Ms.Hillenbrand,
    Your book, ‘Unbroken’ was wonderful. I have shared it with several friends. We all went to see the movie and were very disappointed. Jolie left out half of his life story. The part of his life after he returned from POW camp was the most inspiring and beautiful testimony of faith. For those people who don’t read books but see movies could have witnessed how faith in God can truly transform lives. Because it was totally missing from the movie except for a sentence at the end, the opportunity to move people to do humble service was lost. What a shame.

  527. I probably free read 20-25 books per year and have done so for most of my 60 years. I can truly say that “Unbroken” was truly one of the finest. Thank you.

  528. Dear Laura,

    I have read your book Unbroken and really enjoyed it! I have a grandmother who grew up in Germany during the war and has a really fascinating story as well. I really feel like it should be shared with the world. I was hoping to get in contact with you and possible talk about the possiblity of a book. I would really like to talk with you.

    Phone: 920-333-0177
    Thanks Cody Giesseman

  529. Dear Laura,

    As I write, my family and I are enjoying a holiday together in Landstuhl, Germany. As a gift, my daughter gave me your “Unbroken” novel and I look forward to reading it. Thank you so much for sharing your life with so many through your writing.

    Best of the holidays,
    Peter and Annemarie Rounds
    Oswego, NY 13126 USA

  530. Thank you!! this was a remarkable under taking, and you brought it to light….

  531. To Woody:
    Read the endnotes! Ms. Hillenbrand not only talked to Zamperini at great length, but to countless others over many years of research, including Japanese veterans. She read an extraordinary amount.
    This is history writing of a very high standard: well-informed, balanced, riveting, empathetic.

  532. You did not even interview Mr. Zamperini himself…I have researched WW2 history over 35 years and I have forgotten more WW2 history than you will ever know, this fact you did not talk with Zamperini leaves the credibility of your book dubious….

  533. For vertigo, non-invasive treatment that worked for me: Eply maneuvers. Hope this is helpful.

  534. Dear Laura, I have never written to an author before, and I suppose you’ll probably never get this;what with your celebrity status and all, but I am sending it nevertheless. I am a unit historian in our outfit and teach young people about the men and women who served,in order to teach them who REAL heroes are. I could not put “Unbroken” down,once I began to read it! I add my congratulations to the many thousands I am sure you already deservedly have received. God Bless You!

  535. Ms. Hillenbrand,

    I’ve read both of your books and enjoyed them immensely. The historical accuracy for Unbroken I found to be excellent. I have only one comment. You equated the issue of slavery during the time of this country’s Civil War with the brutality of the Japanese pow camps. I do not find this to accurate at all. Human nature being what it is, yes, some of the slave owners were cruel, but a vast majority of them were kind and took care of them properly. Jeff Sharra and Winston Groom bring out much about this period of history. Otherwise, the book is EXCELLENT and very well written. Thank you for your attention to detail. Here is a website I think you may enjoy: You may find this to be enlightening, especially as an author.

  536. Ms. Hillenbrand- Just finished reading “UNBROKEN” today and want to tell you I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was so informative-so graphic- so inspirational. Thank you for writing such an incredible story ! Louie Zamperini was an absolutely amazing person-it seems like a miracle that he was able to handle all that he did-and to live to the ripe old age of 97 ! Best wishes- Robert Meek

  537. Ms. Hillenvrand,
    I am a retired Fireman, and the progeny of a great legacy of service. My grandfather, Col. James Braden was a B29 pilot and led the fire bombing of Tokyo. He served after the war in Japan during the occupation as well. He survived combat in the Pacific and later worked with Gen. Lemay to create the USAF. Unfortunately; he didn’t survive his war and took his own life due to PTSD. He is now buried in the cemetery at West Point. In the movie Unbroken, it is quite possible that it was my Grandfathers squadron that did the fly-by over our boys in the river; maybe even him. Thank you for bringing this story to life and inscribing the importance of service and sacrifice in the popular culture. PTSD took my grandfather; and has crippled my father and myself. My father’s came from ‘Nam, and mine from too many dead children and my service at the Pentagon after 9-11. Your depiction of how Cpt. Zamperini came to find release from PTSD through the Grace of God has touched me. I will explore that further, and I pray that his example through your story telling will help me avoid my grandfathers fate.

  538. I have read about your experience with chronic fatigue syndrome. CFS is included in the list of autoimmune diseases. I am a 15 year advocate for people affected by AD following the death of my son from ITP and my daughter’s diagnosis with MS. My current effort the Autoimmune Advocacy Alliance is work to bring the 50 million people in the U.S. living with AD to the attention of the community in general. Many/most have delayed and often incorrect diagnosis delaying available treatment and allowing their disease to advance. There are no cures for any of the 80+ autoimmune diseases. The harrowing lives of so many with AD could make a terrific book. I would like to talk with you about the subject. This is serious and important. I can imagine with your experience you might have an interest in learning more. I hope to hear from you. Judi Rising

  539. Loved UNBROKEN Laura.

  540. When Seabiscuit traveled cross-country by train, to reach race tracks on Long Island, the rail cars with horses would have been transferred onto barges to cross the Hudson and East Rivers.

  541. I loved your book “Unbroken” and just saw the movie on Christmas and thought they did a good job of staying true to the book and telling Louis Zamperini’s story. I personally have piloted a B-24, fired a .50 cal. while inflight from inside a bomber and dropped dummy bombs from a bomber and thought your book was realistic and accurate.

    I got interested in this when I talked to one of those “Greatest Generation,” my uncle who just turned 92 years old this month and found out he was a Bombardier like Louis Zamperini on the Liberator. My uncle, 1st Lt Lenny Baltzer was a bombardier for the 725th Squadron, 451st Bomb Group (H), 49th Bomb Wing, 15th Air Force in Italy. He was assigned to “Bomber Crew 369” and is written about in the book by the same title and authored by his famous aircraft commander, Lt. Col (retired) William Charles “Andy” Anderson (born 7 May 1920 died 16 May 2003).

    We are trying to find the whereabouts of his co-pilot named 1st Lt Leopold “Pat Murphy” who was born around 1922 probably from Ohio and 6’4” tall. Pat Murphy was last seen after the war at a military reunion in Ohio on Feb 1947 when they all got together for the last time. Lenny’s wish is to see his co-pilot one last time while he is still here on this earth and as we know Louis Zamperini passed this July.

    If anyone has any information please contact me Paul Baltzer at

  542. HI Laura, I can identify with your health issues. I also was misdiagnosed with CFS. I was finally tested for Lyme disease by a Lab in California. Please look into this possibility for I have had continued good health since i started treatment for Lyme. Do not rely on the ELYSA or Western Blot test . CFS is a symptom and not a diagnosis, as another reader posted. I looked into one Dr’s eyes, when he told me I had CFS, and I said, “Ok fine I have CFS but it started when I was bit by a tick”. Please find a Lyme Literate Dr. Good Luck and God BLess.

  543. Dear Ms. Hillenbrand: First I would like to say that I thought “Seabiscuit” was one of the five greatest books–including fiction and non-fiction–that I have read in my 75 years.

    I also thought the first part of “Unbroken,” when your hero was struggling to survive 47 days at sea, was terrific. My problem with the POW camp portion of the book is that I did not believe it. I am well aware that human beings are capable of surviving all manner of torture and deprivation, but what Zemperini had to deal with simply rang false. To be constantly beaten by a sadist and to receive neither medical attention nor adequate nutrition for two years and to survive in a physical condition comparable to other POWs who did not face near-daily beatings simply rang false for me.

    Therefore, my question is whether you were able to confirm his story in any meaningful fashion or if the book was simply the narrative as it was told to you by Zemperini.

    Finally, I am curious if you had a problem with the way the movie gave such short shrift to Zemp’s religious redemption.

    Regards, Burt Prelutsky

  544. Hi Laura – I know you have CFS/ME. I had it too. There IS a new way to cure it developed by the leading molecular biologist and metagenomic scientist on earth. Would love to share the info!
    Just email me, or you can call my cell #908-227-5209.

  545. Hello Laura, I want u to know that your books have given me such joy in my life. I have dyslexia and did not learn how to read until I taught myself phoenicaly. I had no interest in reading as it was an exhausting chore. I read Seabiscot only because the reviews where so inviting that I finally bought the book. I read and reread it so much the cover was shot out! Your writting flowed so inviting that I hardly had to read the sentances repeatedly because they didn’t make sense. It’s so frustrating being left behind because your not deemed worth someone who needs to read books.please excuse my spelling
    How does this stupid spell check work anyways?!!! Anywho, your a remarkable woman in your own right. I will remember u in my prayers that GOD will bless u in a way only he knows.

  546. I would like to mail you a small book which deals with a very important social issue affecting the lives of millions of people today.

    I think you will find it of interest. I just need a mailing address.

    Thank You,


  547. Laura,

    Your medical story sounds much like that of my family. We were finally properly diagnosed with Lyme disease. Unfortunately, it is caused by a bacteria that cannot be easily detected through the testing protocol that is currently in place. Lyme-literate medical doctors (LLMD’s) are the only ones who can properly diagnose it through testing that isn’t typically done through insurance doctors, particularly if it’s been in your system for so long. I felt compelled to bring this to your attention after reading about your story. Please look into this, because with proper treatment (heightening your immune system to fight the bacteria into dormancy), you can resume a normal life. My daughters and I went through what you are going through and we are now fully functional and feel great. It took us several years to get to this point, but alternative treatments were the key. I have spent over 1,000 hours researching this illness and the political reasons it is so covered up and ignored. Please do some research on it and don’t rely on the standard tests (ELISA and Western blot) to determine if this is what you have. There are other tests that can be done that aren’t offered up by the insurance-run doctors. CFS is a symptom, not an illness, but the IDSA gives names to a number of “symptom sets” and refers to them as “illnesses” (MS, ALS, Fibromyalgia, Lupus, Alzheimers disease, Autism) that are all caused by something, and it’s usually this evasive bacteria that rules your neurological system. Because there is no good test to find this bacteria and no pharmaceutical cure that can make a large corporation millions of dollars, it is not something that doctors want to find or treat. That’s why alternative doctors and treatments are the way to go. Please look into this. There are some wonderful LLMD’s in Washington D.C. who can help. I know many people in my area who travel up there to see them. Best of luck to you.

  548. Laura, I am living with chronic fatigue following stem cell transplant (graft vs host disease), & was wondering if u could share your treatment modalities with me. Who knows, what your treatment and/or therapy might do for me. God bless u & I luv ur work very much.!!!

    Frances Sadler

  549. Laura–have you checked your serum 25 Hydroxy-Vitamin D level? Mine was really low, and after I started taking Vitamin D3 supplements, and brought my Vitamin D level to normal, my asthma and allergy symptoms dramatically improved. Vitamin D is thought to be involved in the immune process.

  550. Hi Laura,

    I watched your interview on Face the Nation this morning. I was very interested in how your did your research for your books. I was also very intrigued on your next book. You mentioned that when you were doing research for Seabisquit and Unbroken, you read the newspapers of the time.

    My husband’s great aunt(his maternal grandmother’s sister)was Hedvig “Sammy” Samuelson. She was one of the women who were murdered by Winnie Ruth Judd, The Trunk Murderess in 1931. You mentioned that your new book that you are currently writing, happened in the same time frame as Seabisquit and Louis Zamperini. The double murder was sensational in 1931, the same year that Zamperini won the Berlin Olympics.

    If you would like to contact me, I would be more that happy to supply more information and insight to the story. Sammy was only 24 years old when she was murdered. Just imagine the impact that penetrated the family.

    Cindy Dziki

  551. Dear Laura,

    I was reading about your chronic fatigue situation and was wondering if you have ever read the book, Healing is Voltage, by Jerry Tennant. I hope you don’t feel that I’m being too presumptuous by my saying that you may have been dealing with a low voltage condition for a long time and I hope you will consider educating yourself about the body’s voltage needs. I care about you and thank you for writing such soulful books.

    Happy New Year!


  552. i am trying to contact Laura to see if she is interested in a true story so eventful that may need a trilogy…it goes back several decades, involving individuals and nations, effects of which the whole world feels to this day….

  553. I am trying to contact Laura Hillenbrand to see if she would be interested in my true story. Although not a historically famous event it did take place about 50 years ago involving two young people in love, a near death shooting while employed as a N.Y.C. policy officer, a touch of irony and long lasting heartbreak that still exists toady!

  554. Have enjoyed both movies from your books and will get your next book as soon as it is published.. I had an inner ear virus in 2011 and researched on my own after doctors, specialist and test did not help. I started taking Manitoba Hemp Oil which was the only thing that had helped al all. I had another light incident last Spring and after doing physical therapy decided to try a Bellicon Rebounder with a support bar. I started using it 5 min a day Dec 7, 2014, have not missed a day and have realized a difference already. I urge you to give both a try. Those of us with invisible disorders are not understood; people just don’t understand and we have to keep on keeping on doing our own research and grasping at hope.

  555. Ms Hillibrand, I have enjoyed your works greatly and admire your perseverance despite your illness. I have suffered similar symptoms for decades and been treated as a hypochondriac, drug seeker and just plain wacko for most of this time. However, I did find one physician who was determined to find the cause of my problem. To make a long story short, I was diagnosed with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS). It is an autonomic nervous system disorder that shares many of the same symptoms and components as CFS and usually hits in the late teens to early 30′s. There is a simple, non invasive tilt table test that can either diagnose or eliminate POTS. I will not go on with my story but, if you would like more information, please go to the Dysautonomia Website ( or contact the Mayo Clinic. Like CFS there is no cure but there are actions available to help you lead a more normal life. Good luck and God bless.

  556. There are so many stories that have come out in my adulthood (since 1981) that give new life to World War Two, and Unbroken was definitely one of them. Another new story, though I know nothing of it is ‘Monument’s Men.’ ‘Schindler’s List,’ ‘Wind Talkers,’ also, my favorite, from the Pacific theater: ‘Flags of our Fathers.’
    I had asked my mother once who the guys were on the flag at Iwo Jima, she only knew of the ‘Drunken Indian Ira Hayes.’ What a misguided thing to say. Years later I listened to that song by Johnny Cash, and evidently she never listened to what the ‘Man in Black’ had to say about Mr. Hayes.
    Having read both his biography and his autobiography, just a note on Gregory Boyington: he was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor while a POW in Japan. For what it’s worth.
    I just want to say thank you for a great story, I would never have known.

  557. Thank you for bringing a great story to life.

  558. read Among The Mescalaro Apaches about Fr. j

    Read Among The Mescalero Apaches about Fr. Albert Braun who made the march of Batton and spent the rest or the war in a Japanese prison camp. Sgt. Wattanabe was trying to spear him with a wooden spear when the US planes flew over and he fled.

  559. Hello Laura,

    Excellent work on Unbroken, the book.
    How much did Angelina Jolie pay for the rights to the movie?
    You should have sold it with conditions to keep it real. Hollywood hates Jesus, the real reason for the story, would you not agree?

    I hope you get this message and will respond to me out of respect.


  560. Dear Laura,

    I read your book Unbroken a week before the movie come out. I saw Unbroken at the theater the day after Christmas.

    The book brought tears to my eyes, yet at the same time reminded me that through God’s grace many men came home….some unbroken and others very broken.

    I too have been privileged to know a heroic WW2 veteran. Although he was not a prisoner of war — he was almost killed 14 times serving as a young infantry Platoon Sgt(17) with the Hell on Wheels unit under Patton and Eisenhower. His name Paul Andert.

    Recently he was featured as an advisor to the movie FURY with David Ayers and Brad Pitt.

    What I find so remarkable about Paul is his ability to recall details as if they were yesterday. He continues to speak at schools even though he is about to turn 92.
    It seems that those who can speak about such atrocities have an indomitable will to survie and thrive.

    We are so blessed to have these men. Paul always says, “You can’t know where you’re going unless you know where you came from.”

    Our WW2 men and women remind us that as a nation we have overcome incredible odds of brutality in war. A nation that became a superpower a nation that reminded the world while we aren’t perfect, there’s something about us you can’t hold down.

    Louie’s life exemplifies the overcoming spirit that American’s possess. Something we have been blessed with since the beginning of our nation. Stories like Louie’s, Paul’s and others must be kept alive.

    Thank You for all the detail on Phil’s life. If I had know about his story sooner, I would have sent him and his wife a card every year. I would have done something. WHAT A DEAR MAN. WHAT A BRAVE MAN.


    For anyone who would like to check out Paul’s story. Visit his website. I’m the website administrator)
    Paul is currently writing his fourth book.
    This one will be about Patton.

    His first book written in his own words is called Unless you have been there. One professor described his life like that of Forest Gump.
    At every turn – he seemed to escape death and heartache.

    We salute these men like Louie Paul and all our vets. As their numbers dwindle down, my prayers i that we can keep them a little while longer. They are National Treasures. And we need them for such a time as this.

    Thank You for such an excellent book. BRAVO. WELLDONE.


  561. My great uncle, Frank Tinker, was in the prison camp with Zamperini. I saw the movie yesterday and was very shocked and surprised at who they chose to play Frank. Frank was 6’1, had blonde hair and a subtle Michigan accent. John Magaro was chosen to portray him. Magaro is shorter, has dark hair, and speaks with somewhat of a Brooklyn accent. I was just curious of what role, if any, Laura had with casting. Granted he doesn’t play a major role so the accuracy of his character wasn’t as important to them. The movie was fantastic, but they left some great parts out of it. Like Zamperini’s story of meeting Hitler, or the escape plot he and my uncle had. Reading Unbroken and Devil at my Heels, Zamperini’s own book, and then seeing it on the big screen was amazing. Despite Frank being somewhat miscast, it was awesome seeing someone in my family being portrayed in a hollywood movie.

  562. A phenomenal read, thank you. Each generation is getting further away from the stoicism, toughness and courage of these heroes. Really puts our soft lives in perspective.
    We have so much to thank them for, yet do our utmost to hide them away and diminish their usefulness in today’s society.
    Thanks again for a story so incredibly told.

  563. My Daddy, Johnnie Walker, was a survivor of the Bataan Death March and the experiences in the movie put reality to the words like nothing but experience could do. He was in the same camps earlier in the war and the U.S. At 65 pounds after similar abuses and working in the Mitsubishi lead and zinc mines. He lost hearing in his ear from the beatings as portraid in the movie. His final message as that of Louie is FORGIVESNESS. Daddy and Mother returned to Japan several times to help build churches and share the message of forgiveness. Never forget. Every American needs to see and believe that our freedom comes because of those who are unbroken to keep us free at home and abroad. Thank you and God bless you

  564. Hi, I’m reading Unbroken currently.
    I was wondering what ages this book is appropiate for…
    Any thoughts? Just wondering,

  565. Well, you have done it again; written an extraordinary novel. Except you really don’t write novels as much as you craft biographies into history lessons that could serve as text books.

    I had a much older friend who was a navigator in a B-29 in the pacific theater. After ten minutes of business discussion I always threaded our conversation back to his experiences in the war as I was/am always fascinated by them. As I read the section about the destruction of Japanese cities by the use of ordinary ordinance, I paused. Harold explained the exact same thing to me twenty plus ago, how Tokyo was basically flattened and the enemy still showed no signs of surrendering.

    You are so good at what you do I would suggest that you consider
    Washington, Lincoln, Franklin etc.

    Again great research, writing, novel. Thanks!


  566. Thank you very much for your book “Unbroken”- Iam extremely late in reading but what a book and and thank you again!

  567. Wow, great web site formatting! The time have you been blogging to get? you’ve made blogging and site-building look quick. The high heels 43 full view within your internet site is amazing, in addition to the material!

  568. Laura,
    While looking into your book, Unbroken, I saw some info that you have been diagnosed with CFS. If you haven’t been already, you should be screened for all known tick borne illnesses, as they can lead to this type of affliction. Best of luck. A Voice of Experience

  569. Hi, I’m reading Unbroken currently.
    I was wondering what ages this book is appropiate for…
    Any thoughts? Just wondering,

  570. I have read Seabiscuit and Unbroken,and saw both movies. Please writ another book soon. You are a great writer, you make me feel as if I am there observing the story instead of just reading it.

  571. Hello ma’am. My name is Jung Ji Sup, staff writer of Korean newspaper CHOSUN-ILBO.
    I send this e-mail for request interview(phone or onlive).
    The movie ‘UNBROKEN’ will be released 8 Janary in Korea. Your book will be soon published also.
    As you know Korea is the biggest victim of Japaense action during World War II. Many women was made to sex slaves against their will. Also many men force to fight as a member of Japanese army. Much of them were killed not only in the battlefield but also in our country by the Japanese regime.
    Also we have great number of victims of bio experiment.
    That’s a big trauma of modern Korean history.
    And Japan is not going to apologize for what they commited during wartime that makes many Korean annoy and frustrated.
    For thesr reason, we are deeply interested in your book and the movie than any other countries in the world except for Unitd States.
    CHOSUN ILBO is the biggest and most influencing newspaper in Korea. We have also many global readers. Your interview will be great helpful for many Koreans learnt to your book.
    If you are okay. Time and format will in accoardance with your convinience. Waiting for the reply, thank you. My phone number is 82-10-5385-0283

  572. Dear Ms. Hillenbrand,

    Thank you for “Unbroken”. I really appreciated the movie, also, as it gave me a chance to show my son what his grandfather had survived in the same camps.

    My father, Dr. Alfred Weinstein, was in both Camp Omori and Camp Mitsushima. You mention him on page 288 in reference to his attempts to poison The Bird.

    My dad miraculously survived, despite several beri-beri heart attacks along with all the beatings and other privations. He wrote a memoir, “Barbed- Wire Surgeon” in 1948, published by Macmillan and most recently re-published by Deeds.

    I’m sure the children of many POWs join me in thanking you for telling part of their stories along with that of Zamperini.

    Elsa Weinstein

  573. Dear Laura,I read your book two years ago during treatment for breast cancer. It was life changing for me not only for the realization that we have within us the ability to survive almost any hardship with faith and perseverance but because I realized that my father flew along side Mr. Zamperini. I am blessed to have him still with me at age 94. Dad had recorded several stories in his journal that are in your book during training on the B-24 and the early months in the pacific. Francis G. Craven was co-pilot on crew no. 3 in the same squadron. (372nd) Dad never talked much about how difficult it was to fly this plane or about the difficult conditions they endured. Dad plans to attend the opening of the movie today with me and my two siblings. We are looking forward to the discussion afterward! Dad is not a movie goer but feels he must attend in honor of the 372nd squadron and Louie and all the men who risked or gave their lives for this cause. I think he must be one of the last surviving members of this squadron but would love to know if there are more still living. Thank you for writing this amazing story so well. I hope Angeline was able to do it justice. Pamela Craven Hamilton

  574. Congratulations on the success of your new book and movie introduction. It is extremely inspiring to know that someone like yourself can be so sick and yet be able to contribute so much.

    I am writing as a mother of a young daughter who has struggled with CFS/ME for the past 5 years. She is now 24 and housebound. Like you, she was in college with her whole life ahead of her, when she first developed symptoms following a virus. She was an avid horse back rider, fluent in multiple languages and ready to take on the world. Coincidently her name is also Laura and she was born on the same day as you but in 1990.

    During our journey for both a diagnosis and treatment it became clear to me how little was understood about this disease both by the public and the medical community. I was devastated to find out how few dollars are spent for research. I do believe the mystery of this disesase can be solved, just as they have discovered treatment for HIV, but it will take significant monies and national attention.

    So, I am asking if you might consider acting as a spokesperson for CFS/ME. You are in unique position with a window of opportunity to provide international attention from the notoriety of your latest book/movie. Your voice will be heard. We desperately need a spokesperson to bring attention, funding and focus to this devastating disease.

    I do realize this is so much to ask of someone so sick , but I believe, like the success of your books, you will make a difference. I am happy to help in anyway that I can and am willing to be the arms and legs as needed. My wish for everyone this Christmas Eve 2014 is that in the next ten years noone else will suffer like you, my daughter and the millions of others who are laying in beds around the world misunderstood and waiting for a cure.

  575. I read Unbroken about two years ago. It truly made me cry. Our dad was as he used to say “A guest of the Emperor of Japan” for 3.5 years. He was captured in December 1941 in Corregador. Many of the things Louis talked about in the book our dad also talked about. Mom and Dad also had the extra burden of hiding our oldest brother and sister from the Japanese. I hope that A. Jolie and the movie doesn’t take too much poetic license with what was in the book. I do plan to bring tissues with me to the movie.

  576. Dear Ms. Hillenbrand,

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I want to say congratulations on “Unbroken,” because your book and movie definitely hit home!!! I am sorry to read about your life struggle with fibromyalgia, but am optimistic in reading about so many who understand this and are trying to help you with their medical suggestions, so I pray for your recovery.

    Regarding “UnBroken” your ability to capture the thoughts and feelings of those who endured the “cruelty of their enemies” is a tribute to your work. Like the movie, “Saving Private Ryan” you captured a lot of hidden emotions our WWII veterans still feel.

    Knowing the accounts of a WWII Airmen, shot down and taken prisoner behind enemy lines hits home, because it’s something I’ve learned to know first-hand from my father-in-law’s WWII POW accounts. His accounts occurred over 70 years ago. However, his story occurred over the European Theater in Nazis Germany, where temperatures were below -50 degrees and with the Nazis forced marches, beatings, lack of food and heat, its amazing he survived as Nazis murdered many of his brothers in his combat unit. I’m sure you’re aware like the Japanese Bataan March, the Nazis killed indiscriminately our soldiers who couldn’t keep up from the freezing cold, which his 300 mile forced march was no exception. Have you ever thought about making a sequel to cover the other side of the World War for an “equal perspective?”

    Covering the WWII European Theater over Nazis occupied Germany might be such a start. Unfortunately, too many of our loved ones from WWII are dying at an alarming rate, so few remain from the Nazis POW Camps, especially the US Army Air Corps, 369th Bomb Squadron of the US 8th Air Force. My father-in-law is one of the last, in fact he is the last sole survivor of his B-17 Flying Fortress, which he served as the 2nd Lieutenant Bombardier.

    I’m still trying to help Dad with his last living request, by obtaining his military honors to help get his things in order. Metals like the Distinguished Unit Citation, and the Purple Heart from the German Luffwaffe that shot him down, seem impossible to obtain, because it happened 70 years ago? Since his story is similar, but the opposite side of the World, maybe you and those from Randomhouse might be interested in talking with him? Interned at Stalag-Luft 3 Prison, his prison escapes “defied all odds,” especially after the tragic “Great Escape” that occurred. The problem is getting him to talk about it? There’s still a lot of hidden pain from our WWII combat heroes, so maybe you can?

    If interested, contact me and I’ll make the introduction. In any event, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year on your continued success!



  577. Hello Ms. Hillenbrand,

    I wanted to say hello and let you know that I have loved both Seabiscuit and unbroken. I have thoroughly enjoyed the literary nonfiction style that you write in, and also enjoyed the facts I have learned while reading your stories. I also recently read the article about you in the New York Times Magazine this past weekend. I know that you have struggled with fibromyalgia for most of your adult life but was particularly interested in reading about your symptoms of dizziness/vertigo. It sounds to me like you have what is called vestibulo-ocular reflex dysfunction.

    I am an ophthalmologist who sub specializes in neuro-ophthalmology. I have had many patients in my career with similar symptoms. I have been successful in treating those symptoms in many patients with a drug called Diamox. I wondered if your physicians have considered this approach to manage your sense of dizziness.

    If there is an interest after you discuss it with them, I would be happy to discuss it with you by email or with them by email as well.
    I anxiously await the results of whatever you are working on now. I also hope that the new year brings you some improved health.

    Be well,


  578. Hello Ms. Hillenbrand,

    I have read and thoroughly enjoyed both of your novels. I love the literary nonfiction style that you write in and enjoy what I learn as well.

    I read The article written about you in the New York Times Magazine this past weekend. I have known that you have struggled with fibromyalgia for much of your adult life and was reading with interest that part of your symptom complex is vertigo/dizziness. It sounds to me like you have a vestibulo ocular reflex dysfunction and I wondered if that had ever been addressed with medication. I am an ophthalmologist who sub-specializes in neuro-ophthalmology and have had many patients during my career with similar symptoms. I have successfully treated many of them with a low dose of a drug called Diamox and again wondered if that had ever been tried for you.

    It might be worth discussing with your physicians. If there is any interest you can email me for more information or they can as well.

    I look forward to whatever it is you are working on now and also hoping that the new year brings you some improved health.

    Be well,

    Andrew eight. BERMAN, M.D.

  579. The book Unbroken is most inspiring. Is it possible to communicate directly with Ms. Hillenand via a letter? My Father flew B-24′s in WW II, was shot down, became a POW and eventually escaped. I was able to capture a significant part of his early aviation career, but would appreciate the help, guidance and support of such a well known author as Ms. Hilenbrand. Please advise how we might contact one another.

  580. Oh my goodness! I finished reading Unbroken at five o’clock this morning with tears in my eyes. A heart rending, yet inspiring story….masterfully written. Our family has tickets for the movie on opening day, Christmas 2014.
    Thank you!

  581. For your book Unbroken; I have recently finished reading it and it is an amazing story and i can’t believe in my eyes that such events occurred at those days. Thank you very much. It is a pleasure to read it.

  582. Have never contacted a public personality previously. I am . A doctor of health science, a professor in doctoral classes, and unfortunately elderly with some debilitating health issues. I am captivated by your research skills and ability to create such a dynamic, living rhetoric. I want nothing; some thought, force, mystery tells me we have things to talk about, to do together. Is there a way to get through by phone?
    Thanks for some response. I was adolescent with Steven AMBROSE AND WE TALKED about somebody ideas. Perhaps we could do that?

  583. Attempted to send a message through Facebook, but am not sure if
    it was successful. If you did get the message and would like to
    communicate further, am at (408) 278-1993 in San Jose, CA.

    Peter K Talanay

  584. Dear Ms.Hillenbrand,

    First of all, congratulations on your commercial success of Unbroken.
    It is well written, and that is proved by the bestseller position in the New York Times.

    I had the urge to write to you since there are some descriptions I found very questionable. Even though I understand “artistic freedom” must be allowed to dramatize for the purpose of conveying your message “forgiveness” to your readers, Unbroken however, is not a fiction. It is listed and sold as non-fiction.

    One obvious example is where you wrote, “…eaten alive in ritual act of cannibalism…” Now, there might had been eating of human flesh which might had taken place during the time of the war where no food was available similar to the Uruguayan Air Force Flight 571 crash situation in the Andes in 1972. You must had been 5 years old at the time. The survivors had little food, so they fed on the dead passengers who had been preserved in the snow. I understand the food supply for Japanese soldiers was scarce on some islands as the war progressed in the Pacific theatre. As a result, some human flesh may have been eaten in extremis circumstances…but certainly not….eaten alive in a ritual act as if this was an acceptable practice.

    NEVER in her 4000 year history, did Japan exercise cannibalism as you described in Unbroken.
    “…eaten alive in ritual of cannibalism…” is a complete lie.

  585. Hi Laura, I just read the NYT portrait of you. I am a big fan of “Sea Biscuit.” Wonderful book. However, the reason I am leaving this message is to encourage you to look to alternative medicine for diagnosis and treatment of your condition. I would suggest looking at stealth infections and metabolic imbalances working together as the underlying reasons for why you are sick and can’t get well. Please look at the work of William Walsh and his protocols for the testing and treatment of metabolic imbalances, the work of Stephen Harrod Buhner and his work using herbs to treat stealth infections like Lyme and bartonellosis, and the work of Trevor Marshall and his protocols for treating stealth infections. My health condition is very similar to yours and i have been homebound for the last ten years, but have experienced much improvement over the last two years using the above mentioned protocols. In reading your story, there were several clues that you suffer from a chronic bartonellosis infection.

  586. I read the Portrait of You. I could not believe what I was reading. I have been diagnosed with Central Vestibular Dysfunction and Mal de Debarquement Syndrome. Your symptoms are my symptoms. I bob and sway, feel very off balanced all the time. I use audio books because it is so very difficult to read and comprehend most reading material. I have brain fog and can no longer multi-task. There is also an unsettling feeling of a gravitational pull like I’m being pull into the earth. I am mostly home bound but the one thing I find gives me relief is driving. I can get in a car and drive to the ends of the earth but if stopped by a stop light, I begin to sway back and forth. I hope those in other cars just think I’m swaying to the music.

    It was wonderful to read your story and I look forward to seeing the movie Unbroken.

    My Best To You.

  587. I just read the portrait of you. I am a body worker, retired now after 20 years of this hands on work, a so called “alternative therapy”. Yes, Lyme disease and leaky gut syndrome should be considered.

    “Spontaneous Healing”, 1995, by Dr. Andrew Weil, MD looks at osteopathy. Chapter 2, “Right in My Own Back Yard.” describes the remarkable work of the late Dr. Robert Fulford. He watched Fulford achieve remarkable results but could never get the MD’s to stir themselves to see something new. This is still pretty much the case even though osteopaths are real doctors, unlike chiropractors. There is an ongoing lack of communication between osteopaths and MD’s, especially when considering traditional manual (hands on) osteopathy.

    Have you looked at “Cranial” work? When conducted by an osteopath it is called “Cranial Osteopathy” and when administered by others it is called “Cranio Sacral Therapy.” When I say “others” I mean massage therapists, physical therapists and chiropractors. Conducted properly it is exquisitely gentle and yet it can do wonders for the hyper excited nervous system.

    Another approach, “neuromuscular therapy,” is a sort of massage therapy on steroids based largely on the medical investigations of Dr. Janet Travell, MD. She was JFK’s personal physician. Her studies on overcoming pain spanned a 40 year period resulting in a 2 volume medical text on pain management. Did you ever fall or get thrown from a horse? There might be whiplash. which goes on if not treated. Look at the effects of what she called “trigger points” in the region of your head and neck, and especially the “SCM”, the sternocleido mastoid muscle. This very strong neck muscle is easily injured in whiplash situations.

    TP’s here can create just the sorts of problems that reportedly trouble you: dizziness, vertigo, numerous visual issues, all can be created by these muscular nodules which respond so well to manual therapies. I once did a short presentation to some physicians on this muscle and found 27 different symptoms which can arise from TP’s in just this one muscle. None caused pain in the muscle itself so doctors see little reason to look for these issues in the pertinent muscle.

    About 15 years ago I heard a lecture by Udo Erasmus, author of “Fats that Heal, Fats that Kill”. He said that there about 30,000 peer reviewed studies on nutrition and health. Your doctor, he said, has probably not read even one of them. Massage, bodywork and osteopathy are much the same. That means there me be a vast body of knowledge to help you but how would you know?

    Be wary of chiropractic, especially the high speed neck snapping. Dangerous.

    Thank you for your books. They are wonderful.

    Michael J. Soudant

  588. Thank you for writing UNBROKEN, Ms. Hillenbrand. Your ability to paint pictures in your reader’s mind that show exactly what your characters were experiencing rivals that of any author I’ve read. Thanks again.

  589. Of course I love your works! I was reading in the NY Times about your dizziness and wondered if you have read, “The Brain That Changes Itself”, by Dr. Norman Doidge. I love the work of Bach-y-Rita. Hope you find healing dear Laura. Thank you for your work with children. I am a 31 year veteran teacher and mother of a Marine.

  590. Of course I love your works! I was reading in the NY Times about your dizziness and wondered if you have read, “The Brain That Changes Itself”, by Dr. Norman Doidge? I love the work of Bach-y-Rita. Hope you find healing dear Laura. Thank you for your work with children. I am a 31 year veteran teacher and mother of a Marine.

  591. I just finished Unbroken and had to share this. I am a police officer and was working security at a Christmas party at Union Station in Indianapolis. It was a pretty dull event, so I pulled the book out and read page 63. I was literally sitting in the main entrance of the building that Phil and Cecy said those last five minutes in November of 1941, before he left Indiana. Amazing!

  592. Loved this book. Many tears as my father was an Army Air Corps pilot flying missions over Italy. He didn’t ever share much about the war. I know he didn’t suffer the horrors as Louie did. Still wish I knew more.
    Now my question is, why is the Billy Graham part not get included in the movie? Such a life changing event.

  593. Have you elimated gluten from your diet? After years of struggle I elimated gluten and alcohol. I realized after the fact that I had had a gluten intolerance for decades and in retrospect I concluded I was deprived of amino acids and that caused a neuro transmitter disorder One year later, I’m feeling great. Ps. Unbroken is amazing.

  594. I’ve had CFS for the past 25 years. About 7 years ago I read about Dr. Lerner in Michigan I couldn’t afford to go see him but my doctor was willing to prescribe 1000 mg of Valtrex daily for me. It was helped immensely. I’ve tried so many supposed remedies over the years but this literally has saved my life. It’s worth looking into.

  595. Dear Ms. Hillenbram: Per the comment below, I would also suggest you look into chronic lyme as possibly being the disease from which you are suffering. “Seabiscuit” is great and I look forward to reading “Unbroken”.

    Good luck to you.

    Alan Ditchik

  596. Dear Miss Hillenbrand,
    I am a huge fan of your books – to have written 2 such wonderful stories while so limited by chronic fatigue is unbelievably inspiring. I know some of what you have been through as I have fibromyalgia and was basically dismissed for years until I found Dr Paul St Armand (an endocrinologist with UV Berkeley who has it an has put himself into remission). He believes fibro and chronic fatigue are different aspects of the same symdrome.
    I also follow Dr Julian Whitaker, who runs a clinic in La Jolla.
    I am now getting very high dose vitamin c infusions to treat Lyme, which I realize now I have had for over a year and a half, but was dismissed by my doctor (who I had come to really like). I am hoping the infusions will relieve 20 years of harassment from 2 rounds of shingles and vertigo from Mieniers as well as the Lyme. My fibro is under control, but maybe that can be helped also.
    I recommend the book Primal Panacea by Dr Thomas Levy, MD,JD.
    Humans cannot produce their own vitamin c and the RDA for it is 75-90mg. Goats produce 13,000 mg a day and up to 100,000 when under stress, such as illness. If I could afford it, I would go to the Whitaker Clinic for a week of treatment. I am lucky to have found a local clinic that will give me the infusions. Dartmouth Hitchcock Hospital will not, although I have doctor friends who work there and would offer it but are not permitted to. Cancer Centers of America use it to keep the side effects of treatment at bay, but Dr Levy says vitamin C will cure anything if given in high enough doses intraveniously. (He has cured both rabies and polio.) There is no money in it, so…….
    Best Wishes,
    Janet Flanders

  597. Laura,
    I just finished reading Unbroken and was sad at the conclusion–I was simply not ready for the epic to be over. I am a huge fan of your writing and am eagerly waiting your next masterpiece. Having read the New York Times article about your struggle with chronic fatigue syndrome, I would very much like to send you a book to read, The Immune System Recovery Plan by Dr. Susan Blum. It outlines the underlining reasons for autoimmune disease and a very practical treatment plan which my son and I, who have struggled with debilitating autoimmune issues, have followed with amazing results. Where can I send you a copy? I have a feeling that it might be the tool that helps your regain your physical life, one without pain and suffering.

    Warm regards,
    Lori Sackler
    P.S. I recently published a book, The M Word: The money Talk every Family Needs to have about Wealth and Their Financial Future and will send you a copy as well if you like. Not a best seller, but has received a ton of attention.

  598. Just finished reading the profile of L. H. in the 12/22/14 issue
    of the NYTIMES Magazine. What struck me immediately was the
    fact that the illness that came so suddenly in college could
    very well be connected to the broken nose….and following up
    on that, even today, might turn into a miracle.

  599. Laura Hillenbrand’s writing is powerful and inspiring. I really loved her book, Unbreakable, and I hope she finds relief from her illness.

    As a person and writer who suffered twice with horrible CFS bouts and discovered, piece by piece, the puzzling mystery of how my illness came about and what caused it, I’m discouraged that the medical community isn’t more enlightened about real issues involved in helping people unravel the extent to which several factors are involved in the diagnosis as well as the life-changing road to recovery: candadiasis overgrowth in the colon, the use of antibiotics to eliminate healthy probiotic immunity, and the use of sugar, carbohydrates, and alcohol which feeds the candida fungus, allowing it to proliferate over time. Candida overgrowth, which causes terrible issues in the body after it goes through the walls of the colon and is absorbed into the bloodstream, overloading the liver and auto-polluting systemically with formaldehyde-like toxins (known as leaky gut syndrome), produces debilitating yeast die-off that result in neurological symptoms such as cognitive confusion, allowing brain chemicals to become disrupted and brain and spinal fluid levels to exert pressure on the nervous system. CFS, can, over time, become another extremely difficult condition: adrenal fatigue, known as hypoadrenalism. Once CFS is resolved with a strict protein and vegetable diet avoiding carbohydrates and adding in full-sprectrum probiotic supplements taken slowly and increased to very high doses (as high as 200 billion daily) ultimately displacing the overgrowth of yeast and improving immunity, the resulting dysbiosis will improve health significantly. However, the adrenal glands can become depleted and produce low amounts of cortisol, a significant body steroid which controls immunity, inflammation, blood sugar, heart rate, as well as normalizing metabolism, and when the levels are too low, the resulting effects are fibromyaligia-like body aches due to uncontrolled inflammation, low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) due to inability to reglulate metabolism, low blood pressure and dizziness on standing, extreme sleep disruption and deprivation due to involvement of the hypothalamus and pituitiary glands sending signals to the adrenals to bring up cortisol levels (known as the HPA axis feedback loup), etc. Testing for both CFS/candidiasis and adrenal fatigue, is critical to diagnosing the problems and two of the most important lab tests, both performed at home under the supervision of a knowledgeable phyisican or naturopath, are a stool sample measuring the level of yeast overgrowth and strains involved, and a very important saliva test measuring cortisol levels, IGA (gut immunity), blood sugar, as well as other hormones produced by the adrenal glands, and that will ultimately provide the right information to begin recovery based on real information about this upsetting condition.

    I’m also a writer who escaped into my fiction writing to relieve my suffering during the worst years and was able to experience life so vividly in my imaginative work that I wrote a short story which ultimately was published in a national magazine, culled from a slushpile of 150,00 manuscripts, resulting in a major breakthrough in my writing.

  600. Laura,

    Thank your for stories, especially your personal one. Your story is a beacon of hope . . .

    May you continue to inspire.

  601. I am trying to find out if Louis Zamperini knew of the Rape of Nanjing and Bataan death march. Did Lauren Hillenbrand ask about these events? There is word the Japanese committed far worse atrocities than the Nazis.

  602. I had been advised this fabulous website simply by my personal step-brother. Practical goal optimistic no matter whether this informative article will be published through him or her seeing that nobody recognise these selected in relation to this trouble. You happen to be fantastic! Thanks!

  603. Eat to Live, Joel Fuhrman

  604. I sse that everybody and their uncle is giving you advice about what causes chronic fatigue. Dollars for donuts it is chronic mercruy poisoning which is behind a lot of idiopathic stuff. The book to look in to is “Amalgam Illness, Diagnosis and Treatment” by Andrew Hall Cutler, Phd. My website is a good place to sttart, too

    Mercury toxicity is not hard to treat. People recover very well. It does take a long time and needs to be done properly or else you can make yourself worse. Most people do it on their own as it is so poorly understood by MDs.

  605. Dear Ms Hillenbrand…
    Look into the possibility of chronic lyme disease
    IGenex testing … ILADS
    Lyme is treatable, Chronic Fatigue is not.
    Good Luck
    Looking for bravery? Hear the chronic lyme stories.

  606. Please feel free to contact me as I have suffered from similar illnesses my entire adult life and I have a brilliant endocrinologist who has saved my life twice and I now, in my early 60′s am starting to feel strong again after years of suffering from exhaustion and pain. He is near Stanford in Palo Alto and his name is Dr. Joseph Prendergast.

    Kind regards,

    Liza 415-302-6417

  607. Hello Laura,
    I am a singer songwriter living in the san francisco bay area. I recently received a e mail from the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome support group I am part of talking about you and your movie. I too have been ill for many years, though I am able to leave my house. I too grew up in a white mount vernin colonial home, I grew up with horses and I write from deep in my soul. I would love to share some of my music with you. I look so forward to reading the book , Unbroken. I want to reach out to you, because, you never know where life takes you unless you reach. Blessings to you Laura, Suzie

  608. I’m loving the audiobook as read by Edward Herrmann. However, I’m currently distracted by the mispronunciation of the town Ephrata, Washington. I think Mr. Herrmann is pronouncing it correctly from say a Biblical perspective, but I believe locals say uh FRAY tuh or e FRAY tuh. Minor quibble . . .

  609. Hi Laura,

    Read a NY Times review today and see that you have been suffering from fibromyalgia for a long time.

    I think you should check out my boss’s website and services. She is a Functional Medicine Nutritionist and works with folks with illnesses like yours. I think she might be able to help you. It’s worth a try. Check her out at:

    Kent Baumkel

  610. Laura,

    I am 67 years old, a retired doctor and solo sailor. Unbroken was given to me as a gift. The day after finishing the book, I fell off my sailing yacht at night in California waters. Cold water, 3 wool sweaters and a soaking vest pulled me under in shock and fear.
    The vision of Zamperini flashed so vividly I could hear him shouting: Don’t give up! Just give it your everything! You got one chance! NOW!

    Well, I somehow found the superhuman strength to make a power kick with my skinny legs and my fingers clawed the trailing edge of the swim platform at transom of the boat which was sailing away….

    I climbed aboard, dropped the sails and went below to strip the wet clothes off, toweled dry, made some hot tea and lived to tell the tale.

    I sincerely believe I would not have survived without your book.
    No kidding!!!

    God Bless you!

  611. I’ve finished a book about my father-in-law who also flew in the South Pacific during 1943-44. There is a research lead that I am trying to nail down. I have a specific question for Ms. Hillenbrand. The section on Lou Zamperini’s Air Corps training was somewhat short. Given his prowess as an athlete, did Mr. Zamperini participate in the 1942 Texas Relays as a member of an Air Corps Track & Field Team? Does she have any information left over from “Unbroken” that deals with this question?

  612. I just read the piece by Mr. Hylton in the NY Times magazine and was sad to hear about the dissolution of your relationship and wanted to offer my empathy and experience. If you’re in a new relationship, good luck and please disregard the following! :)

    If not,… I’ve had CFS for the past seven years and lost my romantic relationship in part due to my CFS. The other part was me being “unfixably” crappy at those types relationships. So in that way CFS has unshackled me from replaying that bad movie again and again. Another happy consequence of not having a significant other, nor anybody but my feline companions in my house, is the elimination of the anxiety/guilt/fear that I was holding someone back and they’d leave. I hope you come to enjoy your unencumbered life as much as I do! Best wishes and regards.

  613. I would like to reach out to Laura with information that may really help her state of health. I am a writer and have had Chronic Fatigue and have found amazing help with my illness. I would love to get information to her. I have no need for her to communicate with me, but I would love to get a message to her if that is in any way possible. I would like to tell her that there is amazing help for her. Thank you for passing along my message. My email is listed above. My phone is 808-756-6844. I live on the island of Hawaii. Aloha, Nan Temkin Dudley…

  614. MS. Hillenbrand, Please Google Judith Gyurky. A story Idea. There are still number of people in Batesville Va who remember her or are actual members of her family.

  615. I have experienced similar vertigo episodes. The use of an infrared sauna seems to have helped me. I apologize for the unsolicited suggestion burI know first hand the frustration of persistent vertigo.

  616. Thank you for your excellent books. CFS is a very bad disorder. Have you thoroughly explored the possibility that you have gluten sensitivity, leaky gut and/or celiac disease? CFS is very much associated with gluten disorders and sadly, most doctors will not recognize it. Celiac and gluten disorders often have no symptoms but fatigue. Do your own research on this and find a functional medicine doctor to help you. We are a physician family and have studied celiac/gluten disorders extensively. Good luck.

  617. I just can’t tell you how much I enjoyed your novel, “Unbroken”. It was spectacular and touched me to the core of my being. The way you did your research, and the way you write is something else. I was especially impressed with your descriptions of the aviation events.

    I served in the Air Force from 1970-2003 and flew the F-111 and the F-16 during my career…….never in combat fortunately. The closest I got to war was our “Red Flag Exercises” in the desert of Nevada. Given my weakened immune system and low tolerance for harsh conditions (especially the cold) if I experienced anything close to what Louie did, I would have died early on………

    I’m sorry you’ve had health problems. I hope they are better now. I work for American Airlines and would love to meet you in person to express my appreciation for your service in writing this book for our veterans and inspiring the film of the same name. You have done quite a service to our country.

    I have a network of about 300 friends on email. Here’s the Book Review I sent out after finishing “Unbroken”:

    I don’t read many books during the year, but when I do the ones I read are highly recommended from people I trust. The book, “Unbroken” was recommended to me by my friend and lifetime mentor, Gen O Sampson, last year. I’m sorry I waited too long to read it. It’s definitely one of the five best books I’ve ever read!

    Unbroken is the story of Louie Zamperini. His story is in the “unbelievable” category. One reason I wished I would have read this book earlier is because Louie died in July of this year at the age of 97, and had he been living I would have flown to see him just to shake his hand and thank him for his service to our country.

    The author of this book, Laura Hillenbrand, is also the author of the national best seller, “Seabiscuit”. She says in her acknowledgments that she felt certain she would never find another subject that fascinated her like the Depression-era racehorse and the men who campaigned him. But she changed her mind when she had “her first conversation with the infectiously effervescent and apparently immortal Louie Zamperini”.

    Laura has a gift of writing like no other to make past scenes come alive with vivid clarity. I have read many excerpts of men in prisoner of war camps and heard testimonies of the harsh conditions, but her descriptions bring you to tears and give you an appreciation for our veterans that will remain.

    The movie “Unbroken” comes out on Christmas Day this year, and I will go see it. But I can guarantee you it will not have the impact that the book had on me.

    The story is about a young Italian prankster from Torrence, California who had a gift for running and an unstoppable determination. He would have broken the 4-minute mile, but after he ran the 1500 meter in the Olympics, he was drafted into the Army Air Corps and became a bombardier on a B-24. Looking for fellow crew members from another downed B-24, his plane crashes in the Pacific Ocean and he begins a long story of survival, resilience and redemption. It’s a story you won’t forget.

    With great admiration for our service men and women, Bill Murray

  618. I just wanted to say thank you for bringing us this mans story in such a wonderful way I have recently broken my back and been deemed Disabled after two surgery’s and it kind makes my situation look small and very manageable. You did a wonderful job telling this story and bringing it to life. Thank you and I look forward to your next book.

  619. I read the book and of course it’s an incredible story and a great book. What I’ve been curious about is that, in all the publicity I’ve seen about the movie, including Jon Stewart’s interview with Angelina Jolie, I’ve never heard the author mentioned. The author of the book on which a film was based often does not get a lot of publicity, but in this case (a) the book was a bestseller; (b) the fact that it was written by the same author as “Seabiscuit” certainly seems like a point of interest worth mentioning. Hmm…?

  620. Life-changing story about a heroic and legendary man. May he rest in peace.

  621. Hello Laura-

    I thoroughly enjoyed your book Unbroken. It inspired me to include it in my
    blog, which I thought you would like to see:

    All the best, from one author to another,


  622. My 10th grade World Literature classes have just completed Unbroken for the second year in a row. I have enjoyed teaching this so much, as I have seen 15-year-old students relate to and enjoy Louie’s life story so much.

    This year, the students completed literature circles to highlight the events of the story, and beautiful characterization projects to illustrate and support Louie’s character with textual references.

    I have a chalkboard countdown to the movie on my classroom door!

    I can’t wait to read what you are writing next!

    Thank you for such a wonderful book that allows us teachers to provide something meaningful and rich for high school students to read.

    Best Wishes,

    Bonnie Espy

  625. I just finished reading Unbroken for the second time. As a former USAF navigator with lots of flying in the Pacific, I couldn’t help but question one part of Chapter seven. It states that it took eight hours to fly from their base is Hawaii to Midway Island, prior to their bombing raid on Wake. If I am correct, a B-24 should fly the 1300 or so miles in half that time. Wonderful book and I thank you for it.

  626. I just finished reading Unbroken. It was a great story and a wonderful book. I couldn’t lay it down. Hope you have more books in the future. I plan on reading Sea Biscuit now.

  627. What’s thrilling is that their product does work and delivers some amazing results.

  628. Can I purchase a copy of “Unbroken” in Brazilian Portuguese?

  629. Hi Laura!

    Kenyon 1972

    Visited Gambier 7/2012, first time in 40 years.

    The magic of the place bridged the decades since I last walked “Middle Path”.

    Have you ever returned?

    Graduated with a BA in fine art, went on to get married, have 3 kids, and spent 30+ years
    in the gilded cage of mortgage banking. Fortunately escaped with my soul intact, back to
    the path I left way too long ago. My very own life. Photography and painting.

    Living in Buckeystown, just south of Frederick. If you ever get up this way, or if I can
    ever be of assistance to you, in any way, just give me a call.

    Photos or videos, even aerial shots, if you happen to need any location shots for any of your work. I would be pleased to assist/contribute, “gratis”, of course.

    Anticipating your next masterpiece!

    “Middle Path” Regards,

  631. Unbroken was one of the best books I have ever read. Louie Zamperini was such a remarkable man. His life showed such amazing forgiveness. I am thrilled his life has been made into a movie and look so forward to seeing it Christmas Day.

  632. Unbroken was one of the greatest reads of my life! I was so moved by Mr. Zamperini’s story. Which was so inspiring!!

  633. I just finished reading UNBROKEN…one of the best reads of my life, and agreeably “[A] one-in-a-billion story…inspiring.”-NEW YORK ~ as quoted from the back cover of the paperback. Immense thanks to the great author, Laura Hillenbrand, as well as to all those mentioned in her Acknowledgements, for making the book a reality.

  634. Although it would probably be difficult, I hope that you write a book about your illness. I too have a little understood disease with no cause called peripheral neuropathy that has ruined my balance and walking. I have also had vertigo but only 3 or 4 times so I know how awful it is. I would love to read your New Yorker article but they make you subscribe to lots of issues and it’s just your article I want. But your books are so interesting and thorough it would be great exposure for this awful illness for you to write a book about your experiences and let your fans know how extreme the affects can be on one’s life. Thank you for Seabisquit and Unbroken. I pray you get better.

  635. I can’t thank you enough for your book. It brought back memories for my father who met Louis Zamperini back when he was in high school. My dad read your book and shared the story with our family about how he and his friends met Louis and ended up going sailing with him. They got to hear about Louis’ life and stories and Louis even shared about giving his life to Christ. My father never forgot it. Bless you.

  636. As I finished your book today, am helping my Dad with final days/weeks of his life. US Navy WWII Okinawa, Ie Shima, Phillipines- landing craft coxswain. I am sharing excerpts from your book with him daily. He was not a POW but was in a lot of action with island landings and kamikazes. Lost many friends. The book has I think been therapeutic for him, so wish he was able to read it all himself. He has told me things in these last days that have remained unmentioned for nearly 70 years, realizing now that I truly had no idea.
    Thank you

  637. I had the honor of seeing an unedited version of Unbroken in August. I thought the movie was excellent, moviegoers will appreciate this movie.

    I saw Laura’s interview with Tom Brokaw, and if the vertigo is still a concern, then I might suggest seeing a Neurological Chiropractor. I hope this information helps.

  638. My husband and I are looking forward to seeing the movie, “Unbroken”. My husband is a Vietnam Vet who has PTSD and understands some of what the book is about.
    I am wondering if Laura would ever write a book about
    Senator John McCain and what he endured during his capture by the North Vietnamese. Just a suggestion.

    I saw the movie Seabiscuit, and it was wonderful!

  639. I know Laura is probably so busy right now but saw her interview and her speaking about her illness with Vertigo and exhaustion. My partner and I are dealing with the very same problem and doctors and tests don’t seem to come up with an answer. We can’t go out much due to his dizziness and falling. If she found a remedy or help and is better now I would so appreciate any info she could give us. We live in New Orleans and my phone # is 504-434-8155. Thanks so much and we loved Sea Biscuit and look forward to Unbroken.

  640. Please tell Laura that I loved both Seabiscuit and Unbroken. Whenever I need a boost, I watch the documentary of Seabiscuit and his beat up jockey Red Pollard. True heroes both of them (and of course Louis makes 3!) in a world of too much hero “inflation”.
    I wish you well, gutsy Laura. You too are an inspiration.

  641. Ms. Hillenbrand, I read Unbroken I guess not long after it was published and I was blown away. So glad to see it has finally been made into a movie. I am now going through treatment for breast cancer and the way Louie stayed strong I also have tried to stay strong and fight to stay alive. I will be, at the movie on Christmas Day to see this amazing movie. I am not as famous as Louie was but would love to tell you my story if I could. I have always been told that I should write a book about my life but I am not a writer as you can see. Also wanted you to know that I too was born on May 15th, so early Happy B-Day. Love your books keep them coming and I will keep reading them. Thank you Denise in Texas.

  642. Dear Laura Hillenbrand,

    Thank you for pouring your heart and soul into this book UNBROKEN. I can hardly wait for the movie.

  643. Most protein shakes are loaded with sugar, fat, and other ingredients that aren’t even necessary for
    the body. What does this growing trend represent to the average person, and
    how does it relate to the current state of the economy.
    Well, mainly because it is tricky to differentiate your products and solutions from other providers this sort of as
    Herbalife, Pharmanex, Usana, Noni, or any of the other hundreds
    of herbal supplement Multi level marketing companies about
    the planet.

  644. When I first heard about “Seabiscuit” in a book store, I was so interested in the story about a man and a horse. I had no interests in horse racing, but when I got home and started reading the book, I couldn’t put it down. It is one of my all time favorite books——that is until the book “Unbroken” came along! I’ve read several books on WWII and the Holocaust, but when “Unbroken” was released and I read it, the book, the writing, the whole story line just blew me away! Laura Hillenbrand is such a phenomenal and extraordinary writer! This book will go down in history as one of the greatest books ever written! I can’t wait to go and see the movie when it debuts on Christmas day of this year!

  645. Last night I watched you Laura and Angelina Jolie talking about your book and the movie. I am sure you know a way to contact Angelina and I don’t so please can you give her this blog. She needs to know what mesh does to women before she has her surgery. Laura I also deal with vertigo due to a drug called Gentomicin used last year. There is no cure for me but I write to inform the women of the world what is happening to our bodies. I keep screaming but no one listens.

  646. My mother tells me that our cousin whose last name is Hamilton was one of his track coaches in college. Great story

  647. Laura,

    First off, I commend you for your hard work in spite of the difficulties created by your medical conditions. I pray that you find the strength to see the joy in each new day.

    Secondly, I want to thank you for writing a story that needed to be read. You did a tremendous job in finding a story that had been heard and publicized to some and diving into the details of the heroic feats and distributing the story to the masses. So much has been said about the story of Louis Zamperini, but the one thing I especially appreciate about your work in ‘Unbroken’ is your attention to Russell Phillips – he is no doubt a hero with a magnificent story of overcoming adversity.

  648. I greatly enjoyed Seabiscuit and Unbroken. My father who died nine years ago was the same age as Louis Z. He was in the military in WWW II, but was not sent overseas.

    Unbroken is such a great inspirational story of brotherly love that may have kept young Louis out of jail by getting him into running and an heroic story of courage and faith that changed a life.

    I have an idea for your next project, if you are interested.

  649. Your book is extremely well written…I read it, and reviewed it once again. I have 3 degrees from USC…my parents were classmates of Louis…I coached track for a short while with brother Pete at Banning High School while in graduate school.

    I was very lucky to have my great aunt be Margaret Mitchell. I inherited a large number of her private family letters. One of them led me to the small town of Vimoutiers France…the US air force bombed it accidentally in anticipation of the invasion of Normandy…more than 2,000 people were killed…she and a French air force pilot privately managed to put the town back together again after the war…I traveled to France and then to British Columbia to track the story, study, and learn…While in France my wife and I were awarded honorary citizenship…I was able to have the story published by the AP and by USC. It shares many things in common with your book…especially the importance of giving back…humanitarianism, and doing things right!!! This year marks the 75th Anniversary of the movie Gone With The Wind. I would like to share this story with you if I had an e mail address…

    I created a list of people whom I believe should be interested…like Tom Brokaw, Oprah Winfrey, Shannon Doherty (played the part of Margaret Mitchell in a television movie), Angelina Jolie, and yourself. My problem is finding any sort of way to communicate. This seems so odd given all of todays technology…can you provide any suggestions…??

    Thank you so much for your time…and your book


  650. I picked it up because I loved Seabiscuit and because I’m a runner. I kept reading through the difficult parts – only in the morning, never before sleep – because I am in awe of what can be endured, and then overcome; because I owe it Louis and others like him not to turn away.
    I read, and re-read the passages about his conversion at a Billy Graham revival. Your telling of the story transcends all religious boundaries. That seems miraculous, but I know it was actually thoughtful, difficult work. I’m not religious, yet it resonated with me and reassured me. Thank you.

  651. Ms. Hillenbrand, I have just finished reading your inspiring account of your struggles with CFS. It was as if I was reading the tale of my wife’s un-diagnosed disease and a light flashed. She has been seen by many good doctors in multiple specialties, but to date we are still praying for an answer. I would much appreciate any information you might offer in terms of resources available for diagnosis and treatment of CFS. Sincerely

  652. Ms. Hillenbrand
    I just purchased your book and I will be reading it soon. I was interested in your bio because I too have vertigo that robs me of chunks of my life while I am in an episode. I get it three or four times a year and I have had it last as long as five months. I understand the severe nausea and desperation that accompanies the illness. Numerous doctors and tests reveal no cause. I recently wrote and published a fiction novel titled Nola Rain. I just wanted to reach out to you as one who understands. I wish with all my heart better days for you.

  653. Laura, thanks for writing this incredible story.i truly had a hard time putting the book down.i’ve never sent a comment back to an author! Until now, dan hollar

  654. Dear Laura,
    I also watched the special last night and saw that you are ill with fatigue and vertigo. I had the same illness with other symptoms and went to scores of Boston Doctors. Finally diagnosed by taking matters into my own hands. I have late stage Lyme disease. If you have any desire to explore this possibility, I suggest you get a Western Blot test through Igenex in Palo Alto. Antibiotics are the answer to helping you at least start feeling better. Doctors don’t really know how to diagnose Lyme and it’s co infections. There are thousands like you going undiagnosed and it is awful. I am so much better now after being treated for this for over a year. I plan to buy your book today and read it. It looks amazing.

  655. Dear Laura, Thank you for writing this story. I wanted to reach out to you as I have been putting together my grandmother’s story. Mary Lou Petty-Skok, my grandmother was a swimmer in the 36′ Olympics with Loui and has many photo’s of the games. Her original is in the Seattle Hall of fame. Sadly we lost her this spring 3 days shy of her 99th birthday. We lost two great American treasures this year. I would love to interview you if you would be so kind. Sending you blessings and kind regards.

  656. I just finished viewing the nbc special about the screen adaptation of Unbroken depicting the life of Louis zamperini. I would like to introduce you the life of the Grest Joe Rolino. Born in brooklyn ny ,a decorated ww2 veteran , rose to be known as THE WORLDS STRONGEST MAN, known by some of the worlds greatest boxers, lived a healthy strong exemplar life to the incredible age of 103 years only to be killed as a pedestrian 2 blocks from his home while getting his early morning coffee. The intersection where he resided with his niece was renamed The great joe Rolino corner by nyc with a ceremony honoring his life. His Llfe story may be of interest to you. Respectfully chris garofalo.

  657. Writing for 2 reasons:
    1) to thank you for writing such an amazing book and for bringing this wonderful story to life
    2) If you are not familiar with ehlers-danlos syndrome and dysautonomia, please read about them and see if this helps explains some of your symptoms. for ehlers-danlos syndrome.

  658. Dear Laura,

    I am a decorated and disabled Vietnam Veteran who flew in attack helicopter combat missions in Vietnam. I read your book Unbroken in constant awe. Many people in our Republic of the United States of America have no idea of the sacrifices made by those who serve so that we may live in peace and tranquility with freedom and liberty.

    Wars are filled with atrocities and inhumanities far too immense for most people to even begin to comprehend. I have written a book about my experiences as a young boy going through the military and off to combat in Vietnam. It is rather pale in comparison to Unbroken. You are an exceptional author. I served a total of 18 years in attack helicopter operations and remain a fiercely loyal American Patriot.

    Thank you for this tremendous heartfelt story.

    Richard Christensen

  659. Hi,

    I felt I had to contact you. I just finished your book Unbroken. I read it in little over a week and found it not only fascinating and compelling, but, unfortunately, somewhat familiar with its basic content.

    I live in a small western Montana town just west Missoula. I graduated from college at Eastern Montana College in Billings(’69 -’74[took some time off]). My major was secondary art education.

    It was here I met Ben Steele who was one of my art professors during my stay at Eastern. He not only was an amazing teacher, but, also had an incredible, memorable and commendable personality. He almost was never without a smile, very soft spoken, never outwardly displayed any anger at us sometime impatient and arrogant students.

    I mentioned a familiarity with your book’s content. Earlier this year I read a book called “Tears in the Darkness” by Michael and Elizabeth Norman. It is a biographical account of Ben’s WWII experiences as a POW that started with the Bataan Death March.

    As students we knew only a smattering of his wartime experiences as he did show us some of his drawings when he felt there was some type of technical parallel to what he was trying to convey. But, I/we had little idea as to the extreme of these experiences were until I read his/the authors’ book.

    I will be recommending your book as well as Ben’s to anybody I meet that might remotely show an interest in WWII history.


    Brian Schmid

    P.S. After 40 years, I was able to email Ben(94 yrs. young) via the authors and thank him for my found memories of him and his influences in my life for in 2005 I retired after 31 years as a high school art teacher.

  660. This is without a doubt the best book I have ever read.It should be used to teach history. I learned more about WWII from this book than I have learned my entire life or ever learned in a history class. It brought me to tears, humbled me and gave me great insight to the human necessity to survive.Your extensive research is amazing.

  661. I am a proud daughter of a United States Air Force veteran. I am equally as proud of Laura Hillenbrand for bringing Louie Zamperini’s life story to America and the world. I wish I had had the pleasure of meeting this wonderful man!

  662. This is the most profound reading experience of my lifetime (I’m nearly 75 yrs old a a voracious reader). My near connections to Louie Zamperini are amazing, having been raised a few miles from the Torrance Zamperini home, flying as a stewardess for a military contract carrier and being exposed to the Pacific islands of Wake, Guam and Japan numerous times during Vietnam and finally, living in San Clemente near Pete.
    I couldn’t put this book down. It is stunning & an education
    of epic porportions. Should be required reading in every high school in America. Thank you Laura, for the most profound reading experience of my life.

  663. What a wonderful story. My father-in-law was aboard the USS Indianapolis during WWII. Thank you and your team for all the incredible hard work of putting this story together.

  664. One member of our book club recently brought up
    his disbelief that the occupants of the life boat were able
    to identify the types of aircraft flying overhead from their flying altitude to the surface of the ocean.

    Could you elaborate on that point?

    Thank you for bringing this man’s life to light. A fantastic

  665. On this -Pearl Harbor Day,Sunday December 7th I completed my read of “Unbroken”. I am so moved by the writing and want to thank you for telling the story of Louis Zamperini.

  666. What a wonderfull book. It was terrible & exciting & grand all at the same time. What a character LOouie was & si amazing that he could survive so very much. Hope you will write another book.

  667. As a veteran of Vietnam and DESERT STORM I don’t read war books because they bring back my own painful memories of war. But since I planned to see the movie when released I obtained it on my Kindle. I couldn’t put it down. It was as easy to read as a novel. It also helped put my memories in perspective. Although I have seen many die, have taken lives, and have so many memories of horrible wounds and injuries, the struggles of Louis Zamperini help put mine in perspective. Wish I could have met him. Thank you for writing such an incredible book.

  668. I feel compelled to express my appreciation for all the effort you put forth to produce such a great work of UNBROKEN. An outstanding accomplishment that I enjoyed very much. Not normaly a huge reader, I couldn’t help but read it as often as I gained a chance to do so until completion. Awesome book.

  669. Thank you…my father was a prison guard for Japanese POWs…his pain was so haunting for me….your book brought back vivid memories of his suffering and how it affected my life…forgiveness is the key
    Hank Beckhoff

  670. Please keep telling them.

  671. Ms Hillenbrand
    You are truly a treasure. There is no need for fiction. There are so many great stories

  672. I’ve never been a fan of non-fiction but could not put this book down. I have a 14 year old student with lymphoma and reading about the heart and courage of Louis gave me hope for my student.

  673. Dear Ms. Hillenbrand,
    Your effort and determination to write Seabiscuit and Unbroken while suffering from CFS and vertigo
    is extraordinary…as are your books. Thank you for these wonderful gifts.

    I imagine you’ve investigated numerous cures for your health ailments but, in case you are not familiar
    with the book “It Starts With Food” (Hartwig authors), I suggest you take a look. It offers the science
    and testimonials that prove many health ailments are caused by improper diet, including CFS and
    vertigo. It’s been a best seller. Many, including myself, have realized considerable benefits simply by changing diet.

    I hope this is helpful.
    Best wishes,
    Andrew Kramer

  674. Louis was a camp counselor at my church’s summer camp in Forest Falls, California in the 50′s. I remember him with all of the “down on their luck” boys from the inner-city that he brought to camp with him each summer. He was a wonderful, inspirational man and touched the lives of all who knew him.

  675. Dear Ms. Hillenbrand
    Many thanks for a masterpeice of inspiration. As a scientist, I especially appreciate your thorough research and objective accounting of a true hero’s life. You took the hard way and time will prove the worth of your toil and talent!

    Tony Zhang, PhD

  676. this was an amazing book

  677. Jeana and I were inspired by Louis Zamperini’s story to write this tribute song for Unbroken. We would love your comments on the song. “When The Only One Cheering is You”

  678. My name is Colden Fees and I am a student at Sussex Academy. For my writing class we wrote entries for the Letters About Literature program. For my submission I chose to use Unbroken. I would have preferred to write to Loui himself but I cannot find a place to send fan mail to his family. I have included my full essay, I hope you will read it. Thank you.

    Dear Loui Zamperini,
    “How about this one?” My mom is standing in the audio book isle at my local library holding a 11 disc set with the title reading Unbroken. It is over ten hours long! I read the summary on the back. “A story of survival and resilience.. The life of Louie Zamperini.” Before this time I had never read a true war story so this was a completely new experience for me. It sounded interesting, so I agreed to give it a try.
    I have a thirty minute commute to get to school so this provides a perfect opportunity for me to listen. Each day my mom and I would turn on the story and pick up where we left off, eager to hear the next part since we were so awed. It didn’t take long before we began to listen to the story consistently each morning and afternoon. It was a ritual.
    I was intrigued from the very beginning. Loui’s pre-war life was not your ordinary childhood. He strived to be the best runner he could and was determined to reach his goals. “Though all three men faced the same hardship, their differing perceptions of it appeared to be shaping their fates. Louie and Phil’s hope displaced their fear and inspired them to work toward their survival, and each success renewed their physical and emotional vigor.” That is the person I want to be, a hardworking and determined man. Whenever I feel as if I am struggling I think about Loui and I act how he would act, git my teeth and work. Whenever I feel as if there is too much pressure on me and stress I think of Loui. I realize how my experiences aren’t even close to half as strenuous as his. I reflect on how he lived in hell for years of his life and he stuck with it and persevered. I think, if he can do it then I can do it and I have no excuse to give up.
    I think how strong of a man Loui is to be humiliated and beaten but not retaliate. He chose not to end his life because he saw the good side of it all. This takes incredible strength, which I do not have. I could never have gone through the prisoner of war camps and come out alive on the other end. He is twice the man I will ever be and I admire that. Then at the end he forgave the people that prisoner him and tortured him. “In a single, silent moment, his rage, his fear, his humiliation and helplessness, had fallen away. That morning, he believed, he was a new creation. Softly, he wept.” He has self-confidence and self-resilience. Those are traits I am trying to acquire and I the way I will obtain them is by following Loui Zamperini’s footsteps.
    I also look around me every day and realize how thankful I should be that I have a safe and comfortable environment. While in the POW camps Loui had none of the comforts of life. “Dignity is as essential to human life as water, food, and oxygen. The stubborn retention of it, even in the face of extreme physical hardship, can hold a man’s soul in his body long past the point at which the body should have surrendered it. The loss of it can carry a man off as surely as thirst, hunger, exposure, and asphyxiation, and with greater cruelty. In places like Kwajalein, degradation could be as lethal as a bullet. ——” My eyes are opened to all of the benefits of my life even when it may seem that I don’t have everything I want.
    The story of Loui has been immensely inspirational for me. I have become a stronger and more determined person by experiencing his life. I never knew that a story could be so inspirational and I am so glad that I decided to read this amazing story of survival.

  680. Dear Ms. Hills brand,
    I read Unbroken. It was one of the best books I have ever read. The most important part of Mr. Zamperini’s story was when he accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Savior. When you sold your book to Mrs. Pitt you had to know tha she, and Hollywood would NEVER allow this part of his redemption and healing to be told. I have always been dumbfounded how an author could sell a precious book for money and let it be ruined by Hollywood. I will not go see the movie.

  681. TERRIFIC!…i am a veteran of Iraq…spent 12 months there…your writing is captivating…when i read the book i was in the drink with him…write more!!

  682. Good Morning,

    I cannot say I enjoyed reading your book “Unbroken”. I can say it was thought provoking and clearly illustrated the depths and heights of the human spirit. I read with interest the quote by Jean Amery on resentment. In fact, I was so intrigued that I started researching some of his works. Human dignity is universal and unfailing. I was curious Laura as to whether you stumbled upon Jean Amery’s quote or how you came upon putting it in the book. That quote and your illustration of human dignity in both humane and inhumane circumstances really struck at the soul of the matter. Thank you.

  684. Hello – I just finished reading Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand. I was very emotional after reading this book and was dismayed to find out the Mr. Zamperini had passed away in July of this year. That was when I started to cry…

  685. I am presently reading ‘Unbroken’. I notice a tremendous error in one of the photographs. This unreferenced photo shows the Black Nan being shot down. It was shot down on April 10, 1945 in Europe. This plane was in the 464th bomb group, the same group in which my brother concurrently served. This plane could not be in the Pacific theater. Could this be pictorial plagarism?

    This leads me to believe there may be other inconsistencies.

  686. How might I make contact with the author. My Father has had a somewhat similar experince , but in the European theater. Pilot of a B-24J, shot down, POW, escaped etc…etc…I wrote an “Account” of the many events, but sure would apprciate the experince of a professional in rewriting it.
    Thank you for your interest.

If you are in need of an angel please get in touch with my Dr Lababa via

  689. Bought Unbroken in Paperback for my mom (85) as she is the reader and my dad (87) is the collector. They loved everything Seabiscuit & WWII so I was attracted to Unbroken. As Mom is reading, they realize that one of the POWs is Commander John Fitzgerald who was my Dad’s cousin. Unbroken now becomes more a family heirloom for us. We are wondering if there are autographed, hardback editions of Unbroken available for sale. An autographed, first edition would make my parents very happy. Amazon only mentions paperbacks. Thank you for your response. Martin Family

  690. Laura,
    Your book has touched my heart deeply. My great uncle, William H. Dunwoodie, was a pilot for Canada in WWII. His life story paralleled Louie’s — right down to the point that when he was missing in action his young wife at home had a deep sense of hearing him say “Cec, I’m okay,” over and over again. Your book has provided great insight into what he endured and what an amazing man he was to live a full and functional life afterwards. He passed away at age 91 having lived and loved fully after enduring being shot down and inhumanely treated at a number of German POW camps… a nurse poured acid in his eye when he reported that his vision in that eye had returned after being blinded by shrapnel. (He kept quiet when the other eye’s vision came back… pretending he was blind, he would sneak around at night and gather extra food for himself and other POWs.) Through it all he had the same resilience and sense of humor that Louie maintained. On a three day walk from one camp to another (no food and no water) my uncle was so thin and weak he was unable to keep walking. Two American soldiers (also POWs) carried him and risked their own lives to save his. For this I am forever grateful. Thank you for bringing Louie’s story to life as it told me things my uncle never did. For you I pray God’s blessing and also healing if your health has not yet been restored.

  691. Dear Ms. Hillenbrand,

    No one should receive the quantity of effusive praise that you are enjoying for Unbroken but having just finished it I cannot in good conscience do anything but add to it. You have told a remarkable story of course, but you’ve done it with no dramatic ploys and no authorial devices. I am so impressed.

    You have also captured the essence of a time and situation in American history more evocatively than anything I remember since Michener’s Tales of the South Pacific and the movie that followed. Thank you, but I’ve read your work much too fast and must now wonder what to do to reload my Kindle.

    Incidentally, I am the only child of WWII parents and with a father who piloted B-24s. Both have now passed and all memorabilia of them and their war years perished in a house fire this past summer. Reading about the plane and its pilots was especially satisfying for me. Thank you.

  698. I’m a Cold War Army vet.I read this book in less than 2 weeks and finished it just before Veteran’s Day ’14. I’ve read many WWII books and watched many movies but this is the first book of that genre that physically and emotionally moved me. I couldn’t describe Mr. Zamperini’s torture to my wife without having to collect myself and dry my eyes. My being seemed heavier and my mood darkened as I progressed from one horrible event to another. The local Veteran’s Day ceremony brought me to tears thinking about what so many military and civilian men and women experienced on either side of the oceans. Their sacrifice of self and family. The events that our veterans of the previous and current wars relive and live with is extraordinary. When I was serving, I often wondered how I would perform in battle and how I would handle those events in my post-war life. I’ll probably never know but I doubt that I could have held on as Mr. Zamperini and with that amount of dignity and then the social service he provided in his post-war life. This is just another example of why the WWII generation is the greatest generation. I am truly in awe.

  700. I have just finished reading your book Unbroken. I can’t remember a book that has brought out so many emotions, it beggars belief what people endured, the strength of the human spirit, courage and resilience, but sadly what humans will do to each other.
    My Great Uncle was captured in Singapore on his 21st birthday and was enslaved on the Burma railway, he never spoke of it, and carried his experiences and nightmares to the grave.
    Thank you for recording the story of Louie’s life, it will live on forever.

  701. I am very touched by Mrs. Hillenbrand’s infirmity, having experienced the same. Conventional doctors/medicine produced neither an accurate diagnosis nor an effective remedy. A naturopathic doctor in Florence, AL diagnosed “candida” as well as some metabolic imbalances through the use of an electrodermal device, the brand name of which is Asyra. These devices have a 97% correlation with blood tests. A revamping of my diet and natural supplements produced a positive change within ten days. Dr. Larry Rawdon has been successful in treating a variety of disorders and many other maladies. I would be glad to offer more information All the best!

  702. one of the most compelling and amazing stories i have ever read.

    I have never cried so much during a book.

  703. hello Laura…
    I’ve just bought your book which I wasn’t actually searching for, but spotted on the shelf at a local Target store and decided it was something I would really get into…having just finished Bill O’Reilly & Martin Dugard’s co-authored documentary ~> Killing Patton. I found it quite interesting however, that coincidentally, both books happen to make mention of Anne Frank (on pg. 4 of your book). The mention of Adolf Hitler in both books is surely more expected, of course. I wonder now what other interesting similarities I may find in common with the 2 books as I continue reading Unbroken. :-)

  704. Hello Laura, my 95 year old WWII buddy, Don Harder, flew B24′s in the war. He was a radioman. Don and I have both read Unbroken. On page 79 is a picture of a B24 getting shot down. The name of that plane was “Black Nan”. Don witnessed it getting shot down that day from his plane. Don asked me to help locate you. I think Don would like to talk to you about some of his B24 flying experiences. Don’s phone number here in Oostburg Wisconsin is 920-550-5549. Please give him a call. Kind regards, Hal R Seider 920-946-1160

For this important project we need to interview someone who knew this man as a primary source. Would you please email me confirming that you would like to be asked 10 advanced questions from your heart of this great man. Thank you, from gracie Cooper 8thgrader at moultrie middle school.

  706. I just finished Unbroken and really enjoyed it. I really like your style of writing as it lightens up things when they get too serious. I am amazed he lived through the experience and lived to age 97.

  707. I just finished reading Unbroken. It is the best book I have read i n a long time. Thank you for a wonderful story.

  708. I was born a few days before Pearl Harbor, but my family was relatively untouched by WWII. Thanks to this outstanding book, I have gained a deep appreciation for the men and women who went to war and saved our world.

  709. My father was a bomber crew chief 2nd WW in Europe. I am very familiar with the B24 and have actually ridden in the only flying copy extant. A quick skim of the book revealed a gross error of fact in chapter 6, page 77. The plane is credited with taking off with 75,000 lbs. of ordinence. This is 1,000% more than the capability of the aircraft. 7,500 lbs. is about the maximum. It’s hard to believe this escaped all the proof reads. A quick “google” will confirm this 3,500-5,000 was normal. Sorry, I hope you get this corrected at some point.

  710. Hi Laura, I wanted you to read this post that my son wrote on Facebook. He has huge following: You think YOU got problems???
    I just finished a book recently called Unbroken. It’s a true story about a World War II pilot that went almost literally to hell and back via crashed planes, 47 days on a raft at sea with no food (world record), constant shark attacks, and being rescued by a Japanese crew who kindly escorted him to a Japanese POW camp where he was tortured and starved daily for years.
    He miraculously made it through weighing in at a whopping 79 pounds and became a world renowned speaker and evangelist. Most of his friends at sea with him didn’t even survive the 47 day rafting adventure.
    Here was the best line of the book …
    “The one’s who survived were those who chose to view each set of problems as a challenge to their intelligence.”
    Perspective was LITERALLY the difference between life and death.
    The dudes on the raft who saw their situation as hopeless simply died. The other guys spent each day cleverly collecting and storing rain water, figuring out ways to kill birds and fish, and (this is my favorite part) peppering each other with questions to keep their minds from devolving into a state of psychosis. They never lost hope. They never quit.
    When the main character of the book arrived at the POW camp he viewed all his torture as a challenge to his will and dignity. He refused to let them break him.
    This is all symbolic of life.
    Life is war. Every day is a battle.
    We are all currently adrift at sea fighting for our lives. If not our lives then our hearts – to keep our hearts alive and not lose hope.
    This world does not like your heart. This world wants to KILL your heart. Your mission is to keep it alive. And, oh, while you’re at it? Make sure your fellow soldiers’ hearts stay alive as well. You get medals for that in the afterlife.
    Myself included.
    Don’t be fooled by the smiles and laughter. People are dying inside, whether they know it consciously or not. The smartest people in the world know it and feel it the sharpest.
    Start viewing your problems as no more than that … problems. Everyone has them. I have them. If you knew my problems you would fall right out of your chair. You have no idea.
    Problems can be solved. They may be too big for you to solve them, but the very act of trying enlarges you to the point where you can. That’s why they’re here in the first place. Problems are your friend, not your enemy. They’re an opportunity for growth, and growth is the point.
    What’s your biggest problem? Believe the answer is out there, search for it, try a million different things, and solve it. You will never have that problem again. It will be quickly be replaced by something much bigger. : ) Such is life. Expecting anything different is to be out of synch with reality, delusional and miserable.
    REAL life is not a big party with some hardships sprinkled in to be brushed away as quickly as possible.
    REAL life is war with some parties sprinkled in to give you a taste of the eternal party to come.
    Get it out of your head that life should be easy. I used to think that and it made me absolutely miserable. Lower “comfort” on your list of values from the top to off the list completely. People who value comfort are losing the battle BIG TIME. They’re not even in it. They are scared, hiding draft dodgers who trick themselves into thinking they’re something they are not.
    I HIGHLY recommend reading that book. After seeing what this one man endured, my problems looked a heck of a lot smaller to me. I’ve got some challenges, but I mean … sharks aren’t jumping up at my face all day while I’m hungry. That would be super annoying.

  711. So good to hear that you are able to recraft Louis Z’s story so younger readers can appreciate the sacrifice he made, as well as numerous others. This is the second book of yours I read, and am both exhilarated and exhausted.Your attention to detail and graceful quality to composition of events that I had no former knowledge of held me engrossed from start to finish. Looking forward to your next work,

  714. Hi Laura. I received your Goodreads email today regarding your young readers rewrite of Louie’s story Unbroken. THANK YOU! I have already used pieces of the original to help my students pick out keywords and ideas, and now I can take it to a greater audience. You just made my day! Thank you for sharing your craft.


  715. Ms. Hillenbrand, Unbroken is one of the best non-fiction books I have read. It is a great idea to write a version for younger readers. I can’t wait for the movie. I only hope it does your book and Louie’s story justice.

  716. Ms. Hillenbrand,

    I’m sure you may unaware of the connection I have to your book “Unbroken.” While doing family research on my uncle, I was made aware of your book, which incorporated or referred to history of the 529th and 530th Bombardment Squadrons and the 380th Bomber Group, which arrived at Hickham Field, Hawaii. I had hoped to send you a personal email, and hope that you are able to respond to this. In your book, “Unbroken,” the plane that went missing, Corpening’s Crew listed a passenger on their list. That passenger was my uncle; MSgt. Richard E. Boucher. I have been haunted by the connection between Louis Zamperini and his story, whose plight was precipitated by the search for a plane on which my uncle fly and is still listed as Missing In Action. I wish I had had the opportunity to meet Mr. Zamperini.

  717. Laura Hillenbrand, you are an amazing woman! I enjoyed reading “Seabiscuit” but “Unbroken” just blew me away! There are not enough words to describe the admiration and respect I have for one who is capable of this talented writing and now to top it off with a children’s version. Just amazing! I send you warm wishes for all that is good.

This story needs to be told and Laura needs to tell it . All the best Patrick Andler

  720. Laura, you are an artist with words! Thanks for sharing your gift with the rest of us. I only just started reading Unbroken, and already have to tell you, thank you. There were several sentences that I needed to linger on because you crafted them so well. Not only do I get to read a great story, but I get to enjoy an inspiring writing style. Thanks!

  721. Laura,
    I just finished reading “Unbroken” great story, thanks so much. I was fascinated with the book and the story of survival even more so that Bird survived as well. I hope the children of Louie carry on his legacy and story beyond the book and film.

    I’m also intrigued with your chronic illness, CFS. Have you been tested for Lyme disease? I would encourage you to get tested. I’m curious if you where cleared of that diagnosis before you where given the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

  729. Dear Laura,

    When an acquaintance learned that I had 78-speed propaganda records from the radio show “The Postman Calls,” but did not know their purpose, she suggested that I read “Unbroken.” Those records, now transcribed onto a CD, belonged to my late uncle who was captured at Corregidor, and became a Japanese Prisoner of War for 3 1/2 years.

    Though he was just a big, lazy kid who’d joined the Army in a show of bravado, and Unbroken is the story of brave, resilient Louis Zamperini, they had in common great suffering–in captivity and when they returned. Unbroken has presented in great deal what my uncle endured and why his return was so challenging–for him, and for his family.

    Thank you for writing Unbroken. It gives a voice to so many men who couldn’t, or wouldn’t tell their stories. The world will know of the atrocities suffered in Japanese prison camps and the valiant struggles of those who survived to function once again in society.

Once I did I couldn’t believe how quickly my body rebounded. Went from bedridden to fully thriving in a couple years! It’s not that I don’t still have bad days. I know that I still have this genetic tendency and need to really be careful with my energy at times of sickness and stress. I pray that the answers will come to you as you ponder over the matter. Best wishes to you! You are an incredibly talented writer and I truly appreciate you sharing that talent with me!

  740. Hello Laura,

    Big fan of your books. Quick question we are producing a film based on a true story that revolves around the coal industry. Long story short it’s based on the Rich family who are the largest land owners in Pennsyvania. I wanted to see if you’d be interested in looking at the story to adapt into a book. It’s a remarkable. I’m sure your repped at either CAA or WME. If you would be so kind to point me in the right direction of who represents you that would be wonderful.

    Looking forward to watching Unbroken. I sincerely hope they did the book justice.

    All the best,


  741. Hello. I purchased Unbroken through Amazon 3 weeks ago for book club, imagine my surprise I get to chapter that almost half pages are cut off! From page 206 to 236 are damaged. I will still read it but disappointing. Molly

  742. Just started reading Unbroken. Its sickening how you sold your soul to the Jews by keeping the lie of the HoloHoax alive and the unjust demonizing of Adolf Hitler who turned Germany around during the 30s.

    Jesse Owens was snubbed by FDR, not Hitler, who waved to him.

  743. I just finished Seabiscuit, which had gathered dust in my library fort a number of years, a gift from my daughter-in-law, and I have to tell you it was the first book of thousands I’ve read over my 72 years that I did not want to end. You captured not only the essence of the racing world but truly the essence of the times as they were. You actually brought tears to my eyes as I read the incredible account of the match race with War Admiral. You writing is elegant as I suspect are you and I know I will pick up this wonderful accounting of the Horse and his entourage and read it again and again God willing…Thank you for this incredible effort and best wishes to you and yours.

  744. I finished the book last night. One of the best books I have read in a long time next to “Lone Survivor”. The way Ms Hillenbrand uses the words to explain the pain and suffering of the POWs in the Asian Threater was excellent. I had a difficult time putting the book down. I have read several books on WWII and the battles, people and results. This one has really touch my heart. The chapter on his becoming a christian was very moving. Louie’s struggles after war and the paths that took him through the remainder of his life really touched my spirit. Thank you Ms Hillenbrand for bringing the life of Louie Zamperini to the American public. I plan to see the movie, but the movie is never as good as the book. Thank you again for the research and writing a book that tells the story of an American hero like no other.

  746. I also consider the attacks on Sarkeesian (using the
    exclusion of actual threats that are often inexcusable) are justified since
    she a) lied about her curiosity about activities b) lifted over $100,000 on kickstarter which
    she used-to develop like 5 films in 2 yrs and h) has been approaching participants centered on what sums
    to Sarkeesian’s fraud. I haven’t frustrated to enjoy any of them at all since, which
    was sometimes my personal favorite or second-favorite
    video game group of alltime.

  747. Laura, I just finished reading Unbroken. What a fantastic tale told so superbly that the book keeps the reader riveted. I was not aware of all the brutality and murder of our Americans and found what the Bird did disgusting. A great story and inspirational. It was great to watch some of the videos too. God Bless you Laura.

  748. Dear Laura,
    Just wanted to let you know that I’m sitting in a 10th grade World History class and the students are avidly discussing your book, Unbroken. I am loving this! Thank you for inspiring our youth!

  749. Your book has been on my list to read since its release in 2010. Although an avid reader, time was consumed by my professional job and volunteer endeavors but fast-forward four years, I can finally say I can check Unbroken off my list.

    It was a raw read and I was utterly hooked from the start. It horrifies me to know it is real, not a fictitious tale. My grandmother, a Holocaust survivor, refused to speak of her camp interment, her escape, and her use as a translator that ultimately led to her survival. Reading this book made me wish that she had. Louie’s story is of courage. His survival is a testament to bravery I can’t even imagine. It struck a chord that is hard for me to articulate.

    Your own struggle with health issues is one too of resilience. In July, I was forced to take a leave of absence from work to address my health issues that spiraled out of control. I don’t normally take the time to contact authors but while I have unexpected, forced time on my hands, I felt compelled. I have been documenting my journey in a blog as a means of sharing information and resources to others who also suffer from autoimmune diseases with the ultimate hope I can be a source of inspiration and empathy. However, I can only hope that through my continued journey I can summon an ounce of the strength that you so eloquently documented and shared with the world – both that of the war heroes and your own. Thank you.

  750. Just finished reading Unbroken! What an amazing life Louis Zamperini lived and God’s faithfulness through out his life was so evident! Thank you for choosing to write a story that was so incredible and inspiring! Please keep doing what your doing! God has certainly blessed you with a gift for writing!

  751. Laura, I have been wanting to contact you to say I loved your books Seabiscuit and Unbroken. I have had CFS the last 16 years and know your battle with this godawful illness. Your books offered a temporary and blissful diversion from the darkness of my life due to CFS. Thank you for putting a face on CFIDS. I call it the “Rodney Dangerfield” of illnesses because it doesn’t get any respect. Maybe there will be a treatment before I die, but not counting on it. I look forward to your next book and hope you are doing well. Bill Sullivan, Sacramento, CA. God Bless

  752. Miss Laura,Great Book,like Seabiscuit.WW2 is my area Of concern.Omori was a brutal place.A garbage dump,built by other pows.The japanese made a rice distribution center out of the pow camp.By stealing rice,pows survived.They were sold into slave labor.My late Uncle Robert worked making Japanese Zeros.He was captured in the philippines after being injured in the Colin Kelly flight.Very little is written about Omori.I will review the movie.kindest regards,Mike Altman

  753. Just a fan eagerly awaiting your next best seller! I admire immensely the depth of research of your subject, followed by your gift for presenting your subject in a organized yet gripping style. That you have accomplished this all the while dealing with fatigue syndrome is remarkable. I thank you for the many hours of pure joy I have experienced reading your books.

  754. I am so grateful for being introduced to such a remarkable life story of Louis Zamperini through, probably the best book I’ve ever read – Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand. I am only 17, but I’ve read hundreds of books and I’m still waiting for the one that’s gonna leave a bigger impact on me. Truly extraordinary.

    Mrs. Hillenbrand, thank you.

  755. My boyfriend is a huge fan of yours and I want to get him an autographed book! Please please please consider helping me. He is turning 18 and I want to get him something special !

  756. I am currently reading the kindle version it truly is a very inspiring book.It makes you realize that we as Americans,take a lot for granted.I have a fathernlaw who is alive at age 95 and spent 2 years in a German prison of war camp.I would be interested if Laura Hillenbrand would be interested in writing a book about his life.

  757. After reading both Seabiscuit and Unbroken I wanted to know more about the author. I learned Laura Hillenbrand suffers from Chronic Fatigue Syndrom.

    Please forward this information about her disease and possible treatment.

    Stanford Medicine School has a video on YouTube “CFS E20″ based on the article “Immune system disruption: the search for answers” by Kris Newby. The YouTube video features Dr. Jose Montoya and is about the Stanford Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Initiative and especially about a young woman who has been treated and cured.

    I hope this will be helpful.
    Patricia Hanlon

  758. Hi Laura,
    Finished Unbroken a few days ago. I generally don’t enjoy biography, but this blew me away.
    I sort of figured a lot of it was made up, because, of course, you weren’t there and I figured there wasn’t much record of his life.
    When I got near the end of the book, it became clear that there were countless hours of interviews.
    Anyway, great book. Thanks so much.
    p.s. And your photo in the back is stunning.
    Charles Sibirsky

  759. I am finding it most difficult to stop reading UNBROKEN. By far the best book I’ve read all year. Thanks so much for writing this, and hopefully Miss Jolie does this justice on the big screen.

  760. I was moved by the story of Louie’s life. I can’t imagine the amount of work that went into this book but am thankful for all the people that contributed to it. I most appreciate the way the story was told and let the reader form his own opinions. I am mostly shocked that I’ve never heard of Louie’s life before this book. Our society needs a wake up call to start valuing this hero and others like him.

  761. Dear Laura:
    When I recently saw the story about Lois Zamperini’s death and your interview I knew I had to right you with an idea about a future book that you would be a great author for. I know you probably have other ideas for books but I would like to propose one for your consideration. This story, like Unbroken, is a story of survival – but more.
    On September 23, 2005, President George Bush draped the pale blue ribbon of the Congressional Medal of Honor on 76-year-old Tibor “Ted” Rubin for his heroic actions as an American soldier and POW during the Korean Ward 55 years earlier. On April 11, 2013 President Barack Obama posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor to CPT (Chaplain) Emil Kapuan, a Roman Catholic priest (whose photo has an uncanny resemblance of a young Kirk Douglas), for his heroism and sacrifice in Korea 63 years before.
    Why are these two Medal of Honor recipients connected? Both served with the 8th Cavalry during the Korean War and both may have been in the same North Korean prisoner of war camp. Both performed heroic acts in that POW camp that resulted in saving the lives of numerous other American POWs. Both are two heroes of “the Forgotten War” that need to be recognized for their sacrifice and bravery. Both of these heroes risked their lives in the POW camp to gather food and care for their fellow POWs (in fact CH Kapuan nickname in the camp was Father Ditmus [so called from the thief crucified with Jesus]).
    Tibor Rubin is unique in that he is the only Jewish Holocaust survivor (he survived the Mathausen Death camp) to receive the MoH. Father Kapuan is one of only a few Chaplains to receive the MoH and may be the only MoH recipient to be canonized as a saint by the Roman Catholic Church.
    I think their story would make an exceptional book about survival, sacrifice and bravery. I include a short synopsis of their story for you.

    Very Respectfully,

    Roger L. Ward

    PS Gary Sinise would be a great director for a movie about Rubin & Kapuan

  762. Hi Laura, I’m a hairstylist and one of my clients who is doctor read your book and asked that I contact you. She said that there was strep mentioned in your history My son his 25 was a college student training for the olympic tryouts in boxing when it hit him out of the blue. He was bedridden for the 3 years and has been getting better for the last year. We finally found that he has a autoimmune disease to strep that effected his body and brain. It is very rare but can be tested and treated.There are only four specialist within the specialiy in the country that treat this illness. I travel 4 hour each way to Doctor Bouboulis in Darian Conn. he is a genius. It’s been a nightmare . I I never leave any stones unturned. As you can see I’m as far from a writer that one can be. Wishing you the best. Dianne

  763. Just finished your book,audio edition. Will be recommending and gifting to all readers known to me. What a life and story. Please continue to write these transcending tales that everyone should be able to witness through your work.

  764. Thank you for this amazing book! It is giving me such courage and inspiration as I suffer with symptoms of CFS and Fibromyalgia. I practice writing and someday hope to publish something of value. I am telling everyone to read Unbroken because I feel it can strengthen anyone’s resolve. Lynette

  765. Hello Laura,

    I was wondering if you would be interested in writing a book about my mother. She is 86 years old. Born in the US, she moved to Japan as a young girl. Her story is about survival and escape from Hiroshima in the aftermath of the atomic bomb…

    I’m not a writer, but think there are many that would love to hear her story.


  766. Just finished the book while vacationing in New Orleans. Went to the WW2 Museum today and was so very grateful to have read the book. My dad served in Guam, , Tinian, and Saipan and just died in February. All of this together leaves me quite emotional and so much more aware of what the war meant to all of us. I am so glad I had the opportunity to read Laura’s book!

  767. Hi-

    I am very interested in finding out if Laura would be available and interested in speaking to an audience of parents in the Fort Worth/ Dallas Area?

    I saw on her website she will be in the Area on Dec. 6th.

    We host this event with 4 Private schools in the Fort Worth area and would love to get the opportunity to host Laura at this Speaker Forum Event.
    Please send information of brooking Laura to : (817) 917-3444..

    Thank you and look forward to hearing from you,
    Moira Taylor

  768. Dear Ms. Marvin,

    I would like to contact Ms. Laura Hillenbrand regarding the idea for a new book. It is in the horse racing genre and is a true story. Hopefully, you can pass along my email (above)and my phone number, 919-270-2578.

    It is my hope that Ms. Hillenbrand is well enough to discuss this with me.

    Thank you for your time and assistance in this matter. I hope you can help me.

    Jennifer Rainey

  769. Hello Laura,

    I am a songwriter. My partner Jeana and I wrote this song “When the Only One Cheering is You” about the inspirational story of Louis Zamperini. We would like to share it with you.

    We would be very interested in your and his thoughts and comments on the song.

    All the best,

  770. Ms. Hillebrand: if there is any chance you will read this I would like to express my disappointment in learning that Ms. Jolie has omitted the most important part of your great story about Louis. I understand his bout with alcoholism and commitment to Christ will not be in the film….Was there not anything you could have done about this?
    Thank you

  771. Pete Zamparini was my husbands high school coach and favorite teacher and Louise and Anthony Zamparini were our first landlords. We never met Louie but I can still remember 40 years ago hearing the pride in Louise voice when she talked about Louie. Louie was not the only Zamparini to make an impression, I treasure Mrs Zamparinis recipe for meat sauce that she taught me when I was first married and Mr Zamparinis advice for a long marriage “never go to bed angry” which have proved to be valuable advice. Knowing the three Zamparinis that we did know it is no wonder Louie was such a remarkable man, he came from an incredible family.

  772. Great book
    My problems seem so minor compare to Lou’s
    I have been a guardian on honor flight 7 times
    And the world war 2 veterans have great stories
    The ww2 memorial in DC is great
    When I read your book I thought I was right there
    Keep up the good work,
    Dean mahovlic

  773. Dear Ms. Hillenbrand,

    I am a Japanese native and enjoyed reading Unbroken. The story of a real person with superb will power, determination, vulnerability and strength is superb. I also found the detailed observation of WWII and POW life from the U.S. military person very interesting. I feel it is important to understand the historical event from various perspectives.

    I have a few questions, though, as follows:

    1) Page 315, Line 9-10; “eaten alive in ritual acts of cannibalism.” I am not aware of such ” ritual acts of cannibalism” in Japanese culture. Where is this statement coming from? If it is true, and mentioned by Mr. Zamerini, being such a person with meticulous details and “superlative pack rat,” I would like to see the source of this statement. If this is not true, I would like to have this corrected. This could be very offensive to Japanese people.

    2) Page 321, Line 17; “leaving Japan, he hoped….” Okinawa is a part of Japan. So Louis was not leaving Japan when he was airborne on the way to Okinawa. This statement could be very offensive to people of Okinawa.

    I would appreciate if I can receive your reply.

    Tomoko Takahashi

  774. This is my first time go to see at here and
    i am truly pleassant to read everthing at alone place.

  775. I rarely venture outside of the world romance novels, but this caught my eye! I found I couldn’t put it down! Great job. Thank you for such an intimate insight into the world of Japanese POW’s.

  776. I’m looking forward to reading “Unbroken”.

  777. First, Pinterest users
    should have more creative options to customize the home
    page. If you like something from other people’s board you can “re-pin” it to your own. The “following” and “followers” selection operates in the same fashion as Google+ and Twitter.

  778. Hi Laura I love your books. I’m a huge fan. I’m just wondering are you working on any new books at this time? anxiously await your next work – your loyal fan LE

  779. Thank you so much for writing “Unbroken.” It is truly one of the most fascinating stories I’ve ever read!

  780. Thanks for your books. I love them.

  781. Wow. I just finished the book. I had purchased a hard copy of Unbroken for my youngest son’s 21st birthday as he shares an interest in WWII aircraft and biographical stories from that era. My copy is the paperback version that became available recently before buying it for myself. Unlike some that have posted here about it being so riveting they could not put it down, I was only able to get through it in much smaller, slower-paced doses. True stories like this of such horrific experiences cannot be quickly devoured regardless of the skill of the writer. It was Ms. Hillenbrand’s writing style that first riveted me to the anecdotes of Louie’s early history, but when the events transitioned from interesting details to the incredible life raft survival saga, I had to take periodic breaks to allow me to process the intensity of what those men endured. The cruelty of POW life Louie was forced to experience, along with so many others, at times left me unable to continue reading. I had to put the book down for a day or two just to let the emotional intensity subside enough to continue. I am especially appreciative of Ms. Hillenbrand’s description of Louie’s spiritual epiphany and the life of faith that transformed him into the better version of himself I think most of the readers hoped for as they read about his immediate post-war struggles. As I finished the last page I could almost sense the immense blessings that have rippled outward from Louie to all of those that came into contact with him after his religious faith conversion. What a tremendous story of survival, suffering and redemption. I salute Louis Zamperini and the incredible research efforts of Laura Hillenbrand for bringing his almost larger-than-life story. Saude!

  782. Author Laura Hillenbrand has written another truly brillant body of work: “Unbroken.” As a former Cold War prisoner of the early Moslem Jihadists, I can relate to what it means to be at the hands of some very severe captors. Ms. Hillenbrand captured more than just the essence of being a prisoner, she brings the reader to feel the pain and suffering of being a prisoner held in a foreign land by those who hate us for being Americans or unlike them. I trained former Japanese WWII pilots and would routinely ask them about their “War Culture” as Ms. Hillenbrand so perfectly articultated in “Unbroken.” Ms. Hillenbrand also captured the strong and determined spirit of those who resist being brought down by their captors. Congratulations to this wonderful author and may she enjoy good health and happiness in all that she continues to do.

    Best regards, Go Big! or Go Home! Go Navy!

  783. The last time I read a book in two days was “THE GODFATHER”. “UNBROKEN” was glued to my hands. I love the TRUE triumph when all odds are against you themes. CINDERELA MAN,THE GREATEST GAME EVER PLAYED, to name a few. I own Seabiscut the movie and now I want to get the book! What are you working on now? Keep up the good work(s)!

  784. I just finished reading Unbroken and wanted to thank you for writing this book. My father was in the occupation forces in Japan for at least a year with the Army Air Corp as a radio operator. I think I now realize why he hated the Japanese people so much. I wish he was still here so I could ask him about what he knew about the former POW’s and there treatment. He also lost an Uncle in a B-24 in the Pacific area on 8 Dec 1941. His aircraft was lost for unknown reasons and no sign ever found.

  785. Laura,
    Thank you for writing Unbroken. The book was beautifully written and a fitting tribute to Mr. Zamperini, Phil, and the other POWs and their families. Having just finished reading it, I feel emotionally drained and uplifted. This is a story, and a book, I will never forget.
    Very respectfully,
    Dave Grogan

  786. Thank you for the privilege of allowing me to get to know Mr. Zamperini. Ms Hillenbrand, you don’t need me to echo the words of millions before me regarding this amazingly written and telling work of art. Yet suffice it to say I am ill-equipped to praise it, you and all those involved (including the unwillingly POWs and their loved ones) adequately.

    Mr. Zamperini’s story is of course, incredible and your skill as a writer succeeded in placing me and no doubt all other readers “right there”, almost feeling every emotion, every vicious blow and every moment of happiness.

    This book has accomplished a number of things for me. Three of them are, the education I received, the “entertainment” of being engrossed in a wonderful book and the escapism a “good book” provides.

    The following two are perhaps the most important…

    One, I feel as if I lost a “best friend”… and two, I will never be able to walk past a 90-something year old again without wondering who I am walking past.

    Thanks for your “work of art”, and based on the book’s credits and closing words, I hope your health is in top form.


  787. I had heard about this book and felt driven to read it. I bought it recently. It’s a fairly large book, and I thought it would take quite a while to get through it. I was wrong! I could scarcely put it down, and read it in its entirety in about 5 days. This book is so well written! One of the best adjectives to describe it is “riveting”! Thank you, Ms. Hillenbrand, for writing this book and telling this story! There were parts that moved me so deeply that I WEPT! I will be recommending this book many times over, and will be purchasing copies to give as gifts! Again, thank you!

  788. Just read that Ms Jolie gas decided to remove the pivotal point of Louies life, of the story of his being able to forgive from the movie, I have bought and given away probably 25 of your books to friends. Thank you for writing it. I truly believe that if Louie were alive to see the movie shown with no reference to Gods healing grace, he would have felt deeply hurt and betrayed.

    Thanks for writing it in truth for him
    Kind regards, Greg Eagy

  789. Thanks designed for sharing such a fastidious idea,
    piece of writing is pleasant, thats why i have read it entirely

  790. I just complete a review of Unbroken. It’s available to read at

    Thanks for writing about Zamperini’s life!

  791. After reading Unbroken about a local legend, Louis Zamperini, I decided to read Seabiscuit and just finished it. Thank you for the experience you shared in both of these books. You inspire the reader to truly learn and understand about each topic. While reading Unbroken, I discovered that I could only read it during the day, as it gave me nightmares filled with sharks and explosions. I found myself googling WWII and talking to friends who remembered their experiences. I was also able to share my husband’s passion for aviation and he taught me to identify planes. I have reread chapters of Seabiscuit, googled videos of the races, and have not stopped thinking about the story for the past three days since finishing the book. I feel compelled to share how much I have gained from your books. Thank you seems so meager, but it is truly heart felt.

  792. I just finished reading Unbroken. I’m sure that you’ve heard it many times before, but “I could not put it down!”. Excellent and inspiring book on the life of a truly American hero.
    My late father was a combat veteran of the Pacific War. He was at Guam, Okinawa, the Philippines and a small, unknown island where his path intersected with Ernie Pyle on the war correspondent’s last day. Daddy was 43 when I was born in 1963. He died when I was 18. He never talked about the war. I became curious about the time I turned 40 and did extensive research on his military career during WWII. I contacted many of his Army friends and got information. I had it bound in an album and wound up sending it to 33 states and 2 to the Philippines. It was a soul journey of closure for me.
    I know that everyone thinks that their story is unique and special, but I’d be glad to send a copy of the album to you as a gift and thank you for writing Unbroken.
    Also, if you should ever embark on another research project for a book, I’d be glad to volunteer any research time to help you.

  793. just finished “Unbroken” and must tell you that it is undoubtedly the most difficult and most engaging book I have read in a long time. It is superbly written, incredibly researched and presents an horrific story that informs the reader so well. It is a book that I have recommended enthusiastically as a “must”. I hope that Laura continues to enjoy many years of prosperity and fulfillment because of this work; and I hope that she contiues to enrich our lives with her talents.

  794. Just finished unbroken. Wondering, what ever happened to Louie’s wife? Were they together till the end?

    Dear Laura,
    I read “Seabiscuit” years ago, and “Unbroken” just recently. Both are fantastic, easy-to-read inspirational books. But what has inspired me the most is knowing that you accomplished these while dealing with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

    Wanting to know more about your illness and how you experienced it, I read the 2010 Washington Post article, and also your article “A Sudden Illness” in the New Yorker.

    For the past ten years I have also had Chronic Fatigue, Depression and chronic pain, and I’ve been searching for a cure. As a psychiatrist I first utilized the best that my profession and western medicine has to offer, but they helped very little. So I took a spiritual approach, turned to eastern medicine, and finally to Shamanic Medicine. I am improving, and I hope that someday I’ll be completely well.

    I now look at illness from these different perspectives, so when I read “A Sudden Illness” there were many “Aha” moments. Fascinating story. If you would like my insights, let me know.

    I do hope your are feeling better and have the strength and energy to enjoy your well-deserved success.

  796. Bonjour,

    Je me nomme Lukaz PONNET, et je suis un étudiant français. A l’heure où j’écris ces mots, je viens tout juste de finir ce fabuleux livre qu’est “Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience and Redemption”.

    Que dire, si ce n’est merci. Un très grand merci à vous, à votre passion, et à ce grand personnage dont l’essence demeure présente au sein de ce récit. Merci pour cette leçon d’histoire, pour cette leçon d’humanité, pour m’avoir permis de découvrir un homme qui n’a pas abandonné. Merci pour avoir su décrire son parcours extraordinaire, dont je ressors les larmes aux yeux.

    J’ai peu de connaissances dans votre langue, mais je tiens quand même à vous rendre hommage avec la mienne, à vous et à votre travail, et à M. Zamperini qui nous a quittés. Peut-être ce message ne sera t-il jamais lu, mais je suis heureux de l’écrire en ce jour.

    Longue vie à vous,

    Lukaz PONNET

  797. Unfortunately, I am not a voracious reader, but saw an interview recently with Louie on a news show. Raising my curiosity, I read Unbroken; it was one of the most intriguing and incredible books I have ever read. You were able to communicate the numbing effects of the punishment meted out to the POWs and Louie.

    I am a retired researcher and commend you for the amazing effort you put into finding details and weaving them into this book. I also felt a bit wistful that all these people have died (very recently, Louie). Even the acknowledgements were worthwhile.

    Thanks for telling this story!!

  799. I was riveted by Unbroken and wrote a 5-star recommendation on my blog. Thanks for all the blood, sweat and tears that went into the research and writing. You have left a legacy for Louis Zamperini and for countless others who are “lost but not forgotten”.

  800. Greetings Laura, I have enjoyed your books immensely! My father was a naval officer in the pacific, so Unbroken had special meaning for me. We share other interests, I have been working as a College Therapist specializing in International Student population and currently volunteer at a Refugee Center in New Haven, CT. Our most significant commonality is my son has been diagnosed with CFS. An active soccer player in High School after a series of infections is now at home in bed. I am becoming active in trying to raise money for research for the disease. If you would ever consider in some way becoming involved, it would be such an honor for you to lend your voice. I wish you renewed and restored health and best wishes for your continued success! my personal email is above.

  801. Hi, everything is going sound here and ofcourse every one is sharing information,
    that’s genuinely good, keep up writing.

    My blog post :: acne endocrine disorders – Norberto,

  802. Thank you very much for writing the book. Not only did I benefit personally from reading it, but I see some hope that our family might still, after all this time, find some specific information about the captivity of one of our elders, who was interned in Japan right from the outset of the war through to liberation. He was 52 and a civilian employed on Guam when he was taken prisoner; despite age and his wooden leg, he survived and returned to us, and lived another 9 years, but understandably, we didn’t end up with much detail about his experiences (not even name of detention camp, for example.)
    Could you please refer me to potential sources of information, or a potential mentor to help me start the search? All our family would be grateful.

  803. Helpful information. Fortunate me I found your website unintentionally, and I amm
    stunned why this coincidence diid not took place in advance!
    I bookmarked it.

  804. I am looking to see if you either do SKYPE or author visits for schools. Our 8th graders will be reading your book titled Unbroken : A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption. We would love to have them be able to SKYPE or meet you in person to learn about you, the book, and writing. Out school is located in the Buffalo, Ny area.


  805. My brother suggested I might like this web site. He used to be totally right.

    This publish truly made my day. You cann’t believe just how a lot time I had spent for this info!
    Thank you!

  806. This book peeked my interest, after seeing an interview on the “Today” show featuring Angelina Jolie and Louie Lamperini. The “true” story kept me spell bound. I felt as if I was right there with the men, through it all. I learned more from this book, than any history class. I’m not a quick reader, but finished this book in less than 3 full days.

    My Dad was a Bombardiere in WWII. He never spoke about his war time experiences. I am grateful to have his very limited diary of a few of his missions. How I wish I could hear his account of his actual experiences.

    I truly hope that Ms. Jolie has done justice with the movie that is being released this December, 2014. The book should be a “must read”, for our youth. Freedom is not something to be taken for granted. The sacrafices these men and others make today, should never be forgotten or taken for granted.

    I would like to give a very personal thank you to Ms. Hillenbrand for all her hard work and effort to bring this story to life, as well as everyone who assisted her.

    After reading this book, I will never forget these men, who endured the most intolerable torture, pain and ultimate sacrifice. Thank you, to all our men and women who serve our country today. May God keep you all safe!

  807. We have understand many outstanding information right here. Unquestionably worthy of book-marking pertaining to revisiting. I’m wondering how a whole lot try out you determine to generate any such exceptional beneficial web-site Internet Tracking Software.

  808. My wife (Pat Walker Locke) is the 1st African American women (by order of Merit and one of only 2 – the other being Joy Dallas – in the class of 1980) to graduate from West Point. Your work has (I think!) finally convinced her to tell her story! Thank You! Now to find someone like you to help – no easy task there! :)

  809. Do you mind if I quote a few of your articles as long as I provide credit and sources back to your webpage?
    My blog is in the very same area of interest as yours and my visitors would certainly
    benefit from a lot of the information you provide here.
    Please let me know if this ok with you. Thank you!

  810. I am 65 years old, a Vietnam Era Veteran, served in the Marine Corps and also in the Army from 1969 until 1975. My father served in the Marines during WWII. My father-in-law served during the war in the North Atlantic in the Navy and went down of 2 destroyers but managed to survive. My Uncle, Howard Bender, is one of the few Pearl Harbor survivors still living today and living in California. My uncle knew Louie. I have read just a hand full of books in my life time but Unbroken is by far the most brilliantly written book I have read in my life. Don’t go to too many movies as Hollywood has a way of messing up what authors write but I will be the first one in line at the movie theatre here in Michigan when Unbroken comes out as I will definitely go see this movie.

    Please pass this email on to Ms. Hillenbrand and tell her that I hope this movie wins numerous awards. These types of stories and the history in this book need to be told and the American public can never ever forget what our men and women have done and endured for all of our freedoms!

  811. Yes! Finally someone writes about herramientas.

    Review my web-site … phen375

  812. How can I get my book signed or a signed copy of Unbroken?

  813. Laura:
    I love your words. I love your passion. I love you. All I can really say is thank you for your talent. Your way of telling this story was so beautiful. THANK YOU. Everything changed after I read your books.

  814. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. In fact, I felt lost when I had reached the end. After reading about Louie and learning of his character, or true grit – I felt like I watched a friend’s life unfold. What a daring man. Also, kudos to his wife, whom rode the current with him on his return from war. Thanks for sharing Louie’s incredible life! Job well done Ms. Hillenbrand.

  815. Now I know about another American hero. I cried so many times while reading about what Louie endured. So cool that Billy Graham could be the facilitator that brought Louie back to God. Wow! My uncle Bernard Dailey died 2 days before his 19th birthday. He was shot down during a Berlin raid. He was a turret gunner on a B-24 Liberator. I never knew this plane was called the “Flying Coffin.” While reading your book, I kept thinking maybe my uncle would have survived the crash if he was NOT in a B-24. I had no idea about the plane’s terrible record. I saw the B-24 at the Wright Patterson Air Force Base and cried thinking about how my mom was only 14 and her big brother was missing in action for 5 years. No one knew that my uncle’s plane crashed in a farmer’s field near Margraten, Holland. There was one survivor. A group of farmers came to the wreckage and carried the bodies out and found the one living airman. The farmers quickly buried the dead and took care of the wounded soldier so the Germans would not find the bodies or the one survivor. It took many months before the wounded soldier could get across enemy lines. It was not until 1949 that my mother and her family got the news about the fate of Bernard and his crewman. There was so much red tape after the war that it took forever for the story to unfold. The soldier’s remains were returned to the US and the men were buried at a military cemetary near St. Louis. The military chose that place as it was centrally located from where the soldiers were from. My uncle was from Latrobe, Pa. War stories are sad for my mom and I feel the same. My mom and her family lived through a terrible time and endured such a terrible loss. Thank you so much for writing this book!!! Maureen Dailey Hogan Schaefer

  816. Quite simply the most inspiring, gripping and unbelievable true story I have ever read! My generation has never known the horror, devastation and cruelty of war—save what happened on 9/11. Too young for Vietnam– too old for later conflicts– I never served—but I have infinite respect for those military heroes—none more stunning than Louis Zamperini.

    This truly is a milestone book— worthy of all the praise. Now I understand why it has been a long time best seller. I hope the movie is true to the book— and will certainly see it!

    Finally, I couldn’t help but learn more about Laura Hillenbrand after reading this unforgettable story. Have to say that I got teary as I read about her personal story and her plight with CFS. In her own way, she knows what it is to live without total freedom. It is an awful irony to know that she is stricken with a condition that has “captured” her. I know I join all that have read her outstanding books along with all her friends and loved ones in wishing, hoping and praying that she is freed one day soon from this cruel condition.

  817. This book was absolutely amazing. I usually don’t like historical fiction and had to read one for school. I was fascinated by the things that he experienced and couldn’t believe that it happened. Before I read this book I didn’t even know about the POW camps. It was a big learning experience for me and its very sad that Louie recently died. He lived a remarkable life.

  818. I think this is one of the most important information for me.
    And i am glad reading your article. But wanna remark on few general things, The
    site style is ideal, the articles is really nice : D. Good job, cheers

  821. Laura,

    I just want to say how much I appreciate your heart and sensitivity, reflected in your writing style and the way you handle your subjects. Heart, sensitivity, and intelligence are powerful combinations. I am glad the public responds because of the way you touch them through your work.

    I do hope this note finds you in good spirits. Perhaps you will find a smile or two in my own sensitivity, in a letter I wrote to my eighty-nine year-old father, early on Father’s Day morning. You can see that in the upper right-hand corner of my website.

    Soon it will be replaced by an essay I have been working on (yes, Fatiguing!). I am an expert in the history of Christian violence. I take a Pew Forum suvey, which states that 310,380,000 Americans say, “I am a Christian.” I discuss Christian supermajorities in European and American history; discuss Evangelicals and Catholics–their salvation systems with special reference to ethics and morality–and conclude, “We really should not expect American Christians, who essentially follow European Christian Traditions, which have explained away Jesus’ commands and expectations for his disciples, to do more than they have (e.g., Native Americans, African slaves, the history of voting rights, the history of labor, the long nearly unbroken string of U.S. Presidents, Congresses, and Supreme Courts), nor to expect them to change.”


    Anyway, take care of yourself; love those who love you; be at peace in your valued contributions; and flourish!


  822. Hi, I just finished Unbroken and enjoyed it so much I had trouble putting it down. Louis’ story is an incredible story of a true American hero. I’ve read a lot about WWII, but never much of the Pacific theater and never of the atrocities of the Japanese POW camps. Thanks so much for sharing the story. You’re an incredible writer and Louis an incredible subject!

  823. Starting reading books because of Electronic Books for some reason, I guess I like electronic gadgets.

    Loved Vince Flynn’s books, Hard to put them down, Until Unbroken
    Could not put the Book Down, Great Writing, Have always had an interest in WWII, I was born in 1944, Louie helped save my Bacon I could say. My Sister was as USC in the 1940′s -Was Helen of Troy in 1951. Grew up near Torrance, In Inglewood.
    We had in Inglewood a Track we called the Farm, Ill bet Louie
    ran there at one time.

    Anyway, Just thought the Book was so well written I had to send a Note.

  824. Mrs. Hillenbrand,
    I just finished Unbroken and I wanted to let you know how much I admired it. At first, it was just a book for me to read for summer homework for an AP class, but after a little while, I started to read it because it entranced me. Not only did Louie’s life stun me, but your style of writing made all the more encapturing. I couldn’t have asked for a better book to read (which some people might find strange considering I’m a 16 year old girl) and I have been recommending it to nearly everyone I talk to. It is truly an incredible story to read sand I know for a fact that it will stay with me til the day I die.
    If not for you, I doubt I would have come across Louis Zamperini’s name and story for a long, long time, so thank you for that. My dad read the book as well several years ago and we’ve been talking about it since I began reading it. When I told him I was writing to you about it, he asked me to mention his thanks as well for writing Unbroken.
    I have been a writer since I was little and I only hope that one day, I will be able to entrance people as easily as you did to me and so many others. Thank you for your contribution to the book world. I’m sure Louis was so excited when he met you, and I know you did his life justice. I’m waiting eagerly for the movie so I can see your wonderful book come to life. Louis would be proud. Thank you

  828. Laura, what a gift you have for writing! Unbroken had me in tears almost throughout the entire book. Born Jan 30, 1942, I was totally unaware of Louie Zamperini and would still be today if it were not for your book. In truth, this book should be a MANDATORY read for EVERY COLLEGE STUDENT in America.

    You are such an amazing woman and God has definitely used you in this world. I wish I could find how you are doing now with your dreadful, dreadful illness – in hopes that you are getting better.

    I live just 5 miles from Kenyon College. I wish I could have known you. I think you would have been an amazingly wonderful person to know. Thank you, thank you, thank you for “Unbroken”. And YES, Seabiscuit too! I have the DVD and watch it over now and again. I don’t know if I could watch the movie of “Unbroken”. It is sooo heartwrenching, yet praise God for His never-ending love for us and patience in waiting for us to truly find Him. Best of best wishes to you~

  829. Laura,

    I have just read Unbroken, your magnificent telling of Louie Zamperini’s story. Louie’s story in America’s story. Thank your for bringing it to life so we can appreciate our cultural heritage and honor the heroes of our country’s past. I felt like Louie could have grown up in my neighborhood!

    You writing skills are marvelous. I turned the pages with an eagerness I haven’t experienced since being a young man reading James Bond novels. I was surprised with the range and intensity of my feelings as I relived Louie’s story. From anger to rage; from sadness to pity; from being incredulous to being proud to be an American…it was a roller coaster ride of a read.

    You were able to wrest every ounce of humanity from terribly inhumane conditions and circumstances. I am not a touchy-feely kind of guy, but I found my own tears joining those of Louie. You are responsible for that. Thank you.

  841. Laura,

    I wanted to let you know that I am a avid reader. It’s not unusual of me to read three books at a time (between audio and written). Thus throughout my life I have read MANY books. However, I wanted to share with you that NONE have moved me the way Unbroken has. Louie’s story is unbelievable, but that is only part of it (though a GREAT, GREAT story!). I have never had anyone who brought a story to life quite the way you do. Not only do you have a gift for telling a 360 degree view of everything happening at that time, you bring the story to life and make the reader feel as if there are there with the character. Trust me, this is a gift that you have that few (even popular writers) have. I look forward to reading ALL other books that you write.
    Concerning Unbroken – it moved me so much that I cried tears of joy when the POW camp was liberated. Ironically I finished reading Unbroken the day Louie died.

  842. Hi there! This is my first visit to your blog! We are a collection of volunteers and
    starting a new initiative in a community in the same

    on. You have done a extraordinary job!

  843. First off I would like to say superb blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask
    if you don’t mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and
    clear your thoughts before writing. I have had difficulty clearing
    my thoughts in getting my ideas out. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first
    10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted just trying to figure out
    how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Thank you!

  846. I have read Laura’s books and admire her as an author. My 90 year old mother wrote her memoirs at the age of 80 and there is a terrific story here. She was the daughter of a doctor who died young during the depression and the family was left with nothing when the insurance company went broke. She eventually married a soldier an d had 8 children, including a son who lost his leg in Vietnam and became like the character in Born on the 4th of July. It is a sort of a love story that spanned many decades and she is a very charismatic character. She even ran for US Congress and had a really god showing. It is a story Laura should consider. I can send the book if she is interested. I have both hard and soft copies. It was self published only for family.

  847. Thank you for writing this book – - I can’t stop thinking about this amazing man – - and his life – - and what he went through – - I couldn’t put down the book – - once I started reading it.

    Now my husband is listening to the audio version –

    I loved Seabiscuit – but this one will stay with me for a long, long time.

    God bless you – -

  850. Met Louis Zamperini about 1957 when I was 14 yrs. old at a winter week-end retreat for teens, boys & girls, at Clear Lake, CA. Mr. Zamperini was the guest speaker and hero. I have a signed copy of the 2nd printing of his 1956 book, Devil At My Heels. Thanks Ms. Hillenbrand for writing Unbroken and for being such a dear friend to Mr. Zamperini and his family during the past several years.

  851. Hello to every body, it’s my first visit of this webpage;
    this weblog carries amazing and genuinely excellent information designed for visitors.

  852. It’s amazing in favor of me to have a website, which is helpful in favor of my experience.
    thanks admin

  853. I do believe all the basics you could have provided for ones publish. These are quite begging and can undoubtedly work. However, your content are quite quick for freshies. May just you want stretch these individuals somewhat through the very next time? Appreciate your submit.

  854. My Father a New Zealand coast watcher was a POW in Zentsuji.

    I have been researching his history since his death in 1999.

    In 2002 I went to Kiribati (Gilbert Is) to visit the place where my father was captured (Bikati, northern tip Butaritari (Makin) Atoll) in 1941. I also visited the memorial to the 22 Europeans (including 17 NZ coast watchers) who were executed by beheading on Oct 15 1942.

    Two things related to the book UNBROKEN:
    1. When they met in Zentsuji, Fred Garrett broke the news to my father that his 17 coast watching comrades from the Gilbert Islands had been executed

    2. In 2012 when I went to Japan as part of my research I visited the old site of Ofuna POW camp, because a number of Dad’s close friends from Zentsuji had “done time” in Ofuna.

    When there I met up with an old lady of 99 and her daughter. They lived next to the camp and still live on the c\same site. They had many tales to tell. In their yard was the last remaining remnant of Ofuna, a concrete support for the guard house (I believe this last relic is now held in a nearby temple.)

    This 99 year old woman’s son who was only a boy at the time had been traumatised by the war and after the war would draw pictures of events. One of the memorable events he drew was a picture of Mr Zamperini’s race in Ofuna.

    I have digital copies of this and his other drawings….. Would you like to take this further. If so please contact me by return Email.

  855. Dear Ms. Hillenbrand,
    Finished reading Unbroken, finding it riveting and a wonderful read. Even tho I knew Louie survived I found myself on edge as I read wondering and hoping he makes it out alive. Your book was so readable I read every page of the acknowledgements. I also read Seabiscuit and look forward to your next book. Finally hope your illness was short-term and that you are well today.
    Very sincerely
    Mark Simon, ( former Lt. US Navy)

  856. I just finished read your book and I wanted to commend you for capturing these events and the spirit of the man who lived them. It is so important to tell and retell the stories of heros such as Louie Zamperini and remind us all of the power of the human spirit. This book is a fitting tribute to all of the Worl War II veterans and veterans of for before and since then. Thanks so much for all your hard work and the beautiful way you presented it.

  857. Hello, Ms. Hillenbrand.

    My name is Shant Avakian. I loved your magnificent work, “Unbroken.” It is such an inspiring life story! How does one go about writing a biography; do you have any advice for a aspiring biographer?

    Thank you very much,

    Shant Avakian

  858. I have just read “Unbroken,” and I believe it is the finest account of of WWII in the Pacific that I have ever read. And as a history Major, I have read many. Ms Hillenbrand’s research and story telling skills are of the highest order. This may be one of the very few books that I will reread in the future.

    Robert Gare

  859. Dear Ms Hillenbrand,
    I just finished reading your book UNBROKEN and was impressed with the story of Loie Zamperini and the wonderful job that you did in writing it; afterward, I googled at your profile and my respect for your writing and determination in the face of your CFS is immense!

    I have ordered your SEABISCUIT and expect it to be as engrossing as UNBROKEN; thank you for providing a week of reading pleasure!


  860. I read Seabiscuit followed by unbroken. I cannot put into words how much I loved both books. Unbroken especially moved me. Laura has a wonderful ability to keep a story moving along and I couldn’t put either books down but didn’t want them to end. I pray another book is on it’s way. I am a major fan now.

  861. I could not put this book down. Grippingly and honestly written Laura Hillenbrand. This mans story is a example to us all of how the human spirit can overcome anything and go on to forgive and prosper. Wonderful story.

  862. I just finished reading your book and was brought to tears. Never in my 75 years have I read a book that prompted this display. This is an outstanding book and Mr. Zamperini was an outstanding human being. Thanks for sharing his life.

  863. I have always been overwhelmingly proud and thankful for the sacrifices made by these men. Your book has ushered that gratitude off the map. My father’s wartime was on the European front so my attention had always been with that side of the war. Too it seems, has been the focus of most of the Hollywood stories -or maybe I only paid attention to the one side?
    ‘Unbroken’ mostly left me wanting to find a way to convey the atrocities to a new generation so that they will never forget, but it is impossible to understand without pouring over the hundreds of pages needed to accurately describe. In the same way one is left speechless trying to describe a star-filled sky to someone who isn’t seeing it, attempting to describe what these men endured and other men committed is impossible without the words from your account pouring off the pages of your book directly into a reader. I cant imagine how the movie will accomplish telling this ‘story’ without leaving the audience numb. I look forward to seeing it and hope it spurs people to read the book. Thank you for the dedication it took to bring this account to the necessary detail, it was an amazing feat.

  864. Just finished the Audible audio book. Life changing. Thank you Laura, for your tremendous book!

  865. Ms. Hillenbrand, I’m sure my comments will not be much different than those of many others. You are blessed with a gift that I hope you will continue to share with mankind; we can use a little positive reinforcement and grace these days.

    I am sure this is a reflective time for you; one I hope is not too sad. Losing a friend is never easy; a broken heart heals so slowly if they heal at all.

    God bless you; continue your work, your work is a gift to all of us and we know, Louie is waiting not so patiently for your next effort.

    I’ll remember you in my prayers; Louie also!

    Thank you again!

  869. First off I would like to say awesome blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if
    you don’t mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.
    I’ve had trouble clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.

    I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the
    first 10 to 15 minutes are lost just trying to figure
    out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Thank

  870. Hi Laura – I just wanted to say thank you for all of your intense work and research that you did when writing Unbroken. I love this book. I was completely mesmerized by it and continue to recommend it to all of my friends. It’s almost too hard to believe, isn’t it? It is so sad what so many men had to endure during the war. Thank you.
    Cheryl Sawdy

  871. Based on the descriptive audio portion alone, I’m pumped for the rest of the book, and to see the movie.

    Your “Seabiscuit…” work inspired both J. David Miller and I when we were writing our book about the South Carolina Gamecocks.

  872. I feel compelled to write and tell you what a magnificent job you did on describing a life lived. To tell the truth I had never heard of Louis Zamperini until you introduced him to me and the world. Your book was spell binding and took me to all the places you wanted the reader to go. Looking forward to any future books you are planning. I hope your health is improving. My prayers are with you. Stay well and thank you again for your gift to all of us that appreciate what people like Lou sacrificed for us.

  873. Just finished Unbroken. Fabulous book. Can’t wait to see the movie! Father was flight engineer on B17.

    I’ve worked on military base for 40 years. Love war history. Relatives in Civil War, father WWII and Korea. Husband and brother Vietnam. Nephew, Iraq. All safe and back home.

    Great book. Thank you.

  874. I have just finished reading Unbroken. I was familiar with the horrific treatment of POW’s by the Japanese but your book describes an unimaginable level of abuse. I am amazed that any prisoner was able to survive these camps.
    Your book is one of the best that I have read in many years. I am delighted that Louie’s story will be told on the big screen. Like Lone Survivor, it will awake our collective consciousness of the bravery and sacrifice made by American servicemen and servicewoman to protect our freedom and way of life.
    Thank you.

  875. I could no put it down, each time I did to accomplish something in my house, forget it, get back to the book. I was born in 1933 but didn’t know about all those horrible things going on in Japan and the Pacific Islands. What a hero Louie was, plus all those other innocent men that went thru Hell.
    Thank you for sharing this history with the world and especially me.
    God Bless.

  877. Good day I am so happy I found your site, I really found
    you by mistake, while I was browsing on Digg for something else, Anyhow I am here now and would just like to say thanks for a marvelous post and a all round
    entertaining blog (I also love the theme/design),
    I don’t have time to read it all at the minute but I have
    saved it and also added your RSS feeds,
    so when I have time I will be back to read much more, Please do keep up
    the superb jo.

  878. I’m sure you get a lot of book ideas, but after reading Unbroken I wanted to tell you a story about my Grandparents. My Grandfather was a polish officer during WWII during the Nazi invasion. My Grandmother took two young girls, one of them my mother, to Germany. They were poor and forced to eat rotten food, to even include cats. The part of the story that I find amazing is when my Grandfather was captured and put in a German POW camp. My grandmother left the girls with family and set out to find him. When she eventually did she was forced to sleep with the Nazi in charge of the camp in exchange for my Grandfather’s freedom. The story goes on but while she was doing that my Grandfather escaped with the help of a small German boy who liked his uniform. My Grandfather traded his officer’s boots and belt buckle for his freedom, while my Grandmother was being raped. Again, the story goes on but eventually they reunited and settled in Germany where my Grandfather worked as an architect rebuilding the cities that the allies destroyed. My mother tells a wonderful story and has pictures. I think this story is fascinating and would make a wonderful book. Thank you for allowing my to tell just a small part of it.

  879. When I heard about Louie’s untimely death a few weeks ago, I thought I was going to cry. I thought he was going to live forever. He was my inspiration. A kid with an authority problem that fixed himself up with running and went on to become an aviator. I can relate. I cannot thank you enough for introducing him into my life. The world will never be the same without the great Torrance Tornado.

  880. Just finished reading the book Unbroken. It was very truly one of the best books that I have read. There is several examples of the American “CAN DO” spirit. Bless all those soldiers and their families for enduring such sacrafices. Looking forward to seeing the movie. Thanks for bringing recognition to so many heroes.The American Flag hangs outside my home everyday and after reading this book it just makes me that much prouder and truly grateful for our soldiers.

  881. It’s an amazing paragraph for all the web visitors; they
    will get advantage from it I am sure.

  882. I have to admit, I have never been moved so much by a book to ponder the thought of leaving the author a comment or message but I just finished reading Unbroken and it was truly the most amazing story I have ever read! For a long time Seabiscuit was my favorite book but now I have two favorite books. Thank you for your years of dedication to Louie’s story and sharing it with us. I truly believed that I knew who he was and that is a special gift you have given your readers. I also just learned that Louie passed away on July 2nd but I am glad he was around to see his incredible life written so beautifully! I truly look forward to your next book, unsure of how but certain it will be just a great if not better than Seabiscuit and Unbroken.


  883. HI Laura, I had never heard of you before a few days ago, and I am old enough, so I guess I should have. I was walking through Barnes and Noble, here in Austin, with an acquaintance of mine, and she pointed out your new book “Unbroken”. Both my acquaintance and I have had lots of issues with fatigue, multiple allergy and chemical sensitivities, and you know the story. She told me that you had Chronic Fatigue, yet you were able to create two best selling books. I was amazed. I understand from reading what is on the Web that you have had a very tough version, and I understand that writing helps to keep your spirit alive, which really is critical. I have found that when our spirit is very low, it is like we are losing out twice, once with our physical health, and on top of that, losing our love of life, which is really doubly crippling.
    I took to writing a monthly email newsletter which I sent free of charge to people I knew or had met, just so they would become part of my community and I would be able to express my views even if I couldn’t meet with them physically. So I know what this means. I also used the vehicle of creating art work to give back some beauty to the world. Both have really helped sustain me. I was glad that you have a man who loves you, understands what you are going through, and supports you emotionally . That is a real blessing. If you would ever like to say hi, send me an email.

  884. I was compelled to tell you how much I loved Seabiscuit but just finished Unbroken. Am filled with so many emotions I had to write again. This story is told so well I felt I was in that plane, that raft, that pow camp. My father, a sailer in WWII, was in the Pacific on a carrier. He never spoke of those years. And as a rule I don’t enjoy “war” stories. Louie’s story was so much more. Thank you.

  885. I thought I would never get back my love, for the way he left me and went away, said there is nothing left between us anymore, but thanks to the love spells casted by you, now things are changing, your spells are working Lord. Azeez, last week my lover called me twice and this week twice a day, it seems as if my lover is repenting on what he did, he wants to come back in my life, I will keep you posted for the update but thanks a lot Lord. Azeez, because for an orphan like, getting back something which is gone means a lot, thanks The spell caster email is lordazeez1990@hotmail. com he can help you

  886. Laura:
    I have just finished reading Unbroken for the 2nd time and wondered if you could answer a couple of questions for me. Very sorry to hear of Louie’s death. My father was a B29 pilot in the pacific theater and could very easily have known Louie. First question: There is mention of a daughter and, if not mistaken, also a son born to Louie, but very little is mentioned about them in the book. Did they have a failed relationship with Louie due to his deteriorating condition after the war? I also notice that they weren’t mentioned in the epilogue. My 2nd question involves the Lieutenant who ordered Louie’s crew to go up in the Green Hornet when it seemed to be common knowledge that the plane was not safe. Was there any remorse shown by this Lieutenant after the fact? It seemed to be a poor decision on his part. Thanks for your time. This is an excellent book and am looking forward to the movie.

  887. Dear Ms Hillenbrand,

    I want to thank you for writing Unbroken, the way you wrote it, the labor and effort you expended to render such an inspirational gift to the world.

    I also wanted to share that both of my older children suffer debilitating illnesses and Unbroken has been a touch stone for our older son – - I read it to him, the last book we ever read out loud together – - he is too old for his Dad to read him books now. I truly could not have picked a better book to be that last “father and son read out loud” book.

    Lastly, I wanted to encourage you to examine the work of Dr Terry Wahls, MD, the woman who wrote the Wahls Protocol and who’s Tedtalk on youtube, “Minding your Mitochondria” went viral. I believe that her work could offer a meaningful response to the CFS you suffer.

    Thank you again for what you have done, for what you do.

    With respect and admiration,

    Greg Barrack

  888. Please keep up the great work. We need our stories.

  889. i am wondering if ms. hillenbrand has considered a true “caveman” diet for relief with her chronic illness….specifically, the diet outlined by ray audette in his book “neanderthin” [i hate that name! the book is more about how the author overcame the effects of chronic & debilitating autoimmune diseases through a dramatic change in diet, which western medicine fails to recognize as a viable option]. it seems now that some experts believe that CFS, too, may be an autoimmune disease.

  890. Da Of für every Single andere very Good short-Article. Die Point else may any ein order, form information und Fakten inside these Arten von ein wished-For technique von crafting? Ich incorporate eine Präsentation following 7 Tage, und ich bin bei glance these Arten von data.

  891. How does one get a signed copy of “Unbroken” without going to a book signing. I would like one for my son, active duty Army. His birthday is August 25th.Thanks for the help.

  893. An amazing story wonderfully told, thank you for this illuminating tale. As I was telling others about this book when I first started reading it I related how exciting it was to read your descriptions of the races. In doing so I always compared it to Seabiscuit but it was only when I finished the book that I learned both were written by the same wonderful author.

  894. A vacuum cleaner is the most effective of cleansing tools; it may also be the more costly.

    You can find many different types of vacuum with several different
    attributes. Therefore before buying a top-rated hoover make sure you understand which kind of vacuum-cleaner is
    ideal for your own needs.

    Determing the best hoover might be perplexing. To help make issues clearer you should
    know what the various types of vacuum are, what the chief characteristics it’s possible to find
    on a vacuum cleaner, and want you type of floors you will be employing a hoover on.

  895. What a remarkable book. So beautifully written, you feel like you are right there with Zamperini, praying for him, and at the same time gaining strength from his incredible experiences. I am changed by having read this book and knowing this story. Can’t wait for the movie. Thank you for the gift of this book Laura. We are all blessed by your work.

  896. Great read! We need a reminder of the sacrifices made by men like Louie in our behalf. The story also relates to another of my heros, Billy Graham.
    Thanks for the inspirational read.

  897. Just wanted to thank you for making me aware of Mr. Zamperini and his trials in this world. Saddened to hear of his passing on July the 3rd…truly puts things in perspective for me when I try to process what some people endure in this life..Still working on the forgiveness part! Thank you and I hope you are feeling well

  898. Dear Laura, I just finished reading Unbroken. Like Seabiscuit a great story and well written. Bravo. Part of my reason for this note is we have two things shared in common, my daughter Rachael Karp(Lizotte) graduated from Kenyon College and she also came down with Chronic Fatigue Synd in her 2nd year at Kenyon. What is your next book adventure?
    Thank you.
    Very truly yours, Tom Karp

  899. I loved your book but there is a mistake on pg. 334 at the bottom Tojo was not the master mind of peral harbor it was Isoroku Yamamoto so if it’s not to late and if you have time can you fix it
    And I’m sorry that Louie died the other day.

  900. Omfg, thanks so much for posting this! It is gonna help when I am thinking about going to see a movie in Jacksonville! Very Cool!

  901. Ms. Hillenbrand, you have been in my thoughts often since hearing of Louis Zamperini’s death a week ago. In an interview with World Magazine, he spoke of his friendship with you and of your courage in writing through CFS and its challenges. In light of that friendship, please accept my condolences on his loss. May His God and mine comfort and strengthen you. May He protect you from any exacerbation of symptoms grief might ordinarily cause.

    Thank you for pressing on. Your own story encourages me in my own chronic illness journey.

    God bless you,

  902. Hi I read about Laura I think it was in Newsweek a while ago. I have two things I would like to mention to you. One is I loved her story about Sea Biscuit I have a horse myself. I just watched a horse show on RFD about a war horse called Reckless. What an AMAZING story I would love to see this story go farther there has been a few books written but years ago and would love for Laura to look into this wonderful horse story. The name of the show I watched is The horse show by Rick Lamb. The second thing I wanted to mention is I thought I read a while back that Laura suffered from vertigo if I’m wrong about that I apologize. If I am right I have suffered since childhood with the same problem I am now 55 years old. I’m sure she ahs seen the best doctors I myself had been to so many I lost count. But finally an ENT gave my a high dose 1 GM of Valacyclovir within days my dizzy spells were gone I have no clue why but I had spent 2 years crawling from room to room with severe vertigo. Just thought you never know it could help I know I would of given anything in that 2 year period to to get some help. Well that is all I wanted to share I hope she is doing well and I hope she investigates this wonderful horse story. BTW I plan on reading Unbroken as well. Thanks for your time Lori Pegram Wesley Chapel, Florida.

  903. With the passing of Mr. Zamperini prior to his riding in the Rose Parade this year, I finally picked up your book to learn more about this great man. As a resident of Los Angeles, I am embarrassed to find how little I knew. I love biographical material and expected a good read but was so taken by your account of his life and the Pacific POW issue that I am now making certain others hear about your amazing book. Thank you for the years of research and compassion that went into this story. It is a must read for anyone who cares about this time in our history. I feel honored to have met him and others through your writing.

  904. Unbelievable story, written superbly! Could not put it down! May God bless your amazing effort many times over! Looking forward to seeing the movie, but can’t imagine it holding a candle to your book! WOW! Thank your for bringing this story to life. What a tribute to a remarkable man and war hero!

  905. I just finished reading UNBROKEN, an ammazing story told with heart. As a Viet Nam veteran I was “hooked” from the very first page to the very last page. It was difficult to put down.

    However, as a professional voice artist and narrator of 21 different audio books, I was disappointed that UNBROKEN was already available as an audio book. Oh well :)

  906. Mrs. Hillenbrand,
    I rarely carve out the necessary time to read, partially because many books fall short of the time spent to consume them. But nothing could have been further from the truth when reading your book Unbroken. You have a delightful style of writing!! Your ability to recount Mr. Zamperini’s life history with such detail and fervor was palpable!! Having just finished your book on the day of Mr. Zamparini’s passing, I was overcome with sadness. As the wife of a military airman, a children’s social worker, avid consumer of survivor stories and a Christian, Louie’s story touched me on many levels. I have the utmost respect for Louie Zamparini and I am eternally grateful that you shared his triumphant story with me and the rest of the world~ Thank you!!!!!!! I am eager to read (and therefore learn) about the next subject to whom you would devote the same amount of care and fortitude.

  907. Congratulations Laura!
    Your writing is so soothing. I felt like I was there with Louie, I now know of our greatest American hero.
    When I saw he pasted away, I decided to download your book on my iPad. It really never left my side for 3 days. Five Stars!

  909. Bless you for introducing me to Louie Z. I am better for “knowing” him.

    I pray you are better….I pray for your health and happiness. God bless you and your husband.

  910. Ms Hillenbrand,
    I have just finished reading unbroken. You did an unbelievable job. My congratulations. I was wondering if you did have or have anything to do with the movie that will be out this December that’s being helmed by Angelina Jolie? If not, I’m hoping that she gets all the technical help she needs to make a movie worth watching as you have made the book worth reading. They always say the book is better than the movie. I’m hoping for at least a tie with this one. Many thanks again for writing something that was long overdue and needed to be told.

  911. Ms. Hillenbrand,
    I read your book last year, It was quite good. I think you got the essence of Mr. Zamperini very well. Thank you for writing the book.

  912. Dear Laura,

    I am a published author living in Los Angeles, CA. I am also a fellow sufferer of CFS. I also developed my first symptoms in 1987, and still struggle with frequent relapses and miserable symptoms.
    I keep trying to write, but often I am too weak or depressed to write. I am on a regime of medications which all help to a point, but I am still left often exhausted and aching.
    I want to congratulate you on your latest new book! It must have been quite a project.
    I am contacting you wondering if we could communicate in some way. I do not know any other writers with our disabling illness, and you could be a wonderful encouragement to me if you have the time and/ or the energy. Please feel free to contact me at any time. I wish you good health and more success in your future.

  913. It was just my regular Sunday morning recording of “Sunday Morning” that I learned of the great life of Louie Zamperini along with your story. What a gift it will be to learn about this man through your writing. I am grateful, for this story this morning, reminded me that we never know who we pass by in our daily lives and how important it is to realize we may be passing on some incredible opportunties to learn of people like Louie. What an amazing man, you brought to our attention. Thank you, I will be buying your book this week.

  914. Dear Ms. Hillenbrand,
    I can only guess how many ‘thank yous’ you’ve received for bringing Louie Zamperini’s story to life, but I will add one.

    My father is 83, served during Korea, was an accomplished track man and happened to see Louie run a marathon c. 1938 in northern New Jersey. A friendly uncle saw his early love of running and brought him to the race. Last summer I gave him the book and I’ve never seen him so immersed.

    This thank you does little to express the depth of our gratitude for your own valiant effort in bringing to life Louie’s story of mischief, talent, courage, perseverance and love.


    Tom Flynn

  915. Laura, I read UNBROKEN, and this is the best book I have ever read. Now I know the names of other books I will read them. Nothing will ever touch my heart like this one. I read where Louis Zamperini died, I am sorry for that. He was a treasure. He lived a life no one will ever totally understand, but you. Thank you so much for the pleasure of your skillful writing

  916. I read your book, Unbroken, when it first came out. I was immediately drawn in by the story, reading it every chance I got and finishing it in two days! Thank you for helping Mr. Zamperini tell his story! That being said, I know the two of you must have been very close and my heart goes out to you and his friends and family at this sad time!

  917. Dear Ms. Hillenbrand,

    I just finished reading “Unbroken” a few days ago. I am so sorry that you have lost such a dear friend, yet I know that Louie is with his Savior, enjoying sweet fellowship with Him. I hope that you can find comfort in the way you have brought Louie’s story to so many, and helped us remember the enormous sacrifice of the Greatest Generation so that we can enjoy our precious American freedoms.

    A big hug1


  918. When I saw the news of Louie’s death yesterday, I was very sad but my next thought was, “I have to see what Laura Hillenbrand says”–that is how bound to each other you are to me. Louie’s courage at fighting outer and inner enemies–I try to emulate him but most days do not come close to his or your abilities.
    I have read and reread Seabiscuit many times, read and reread A Sudden Illness-as an Ohio native, the Kenyon College connection was hard to ignore-and read Unbroken with tears in my eyes. I respect you so much for your struggle against chronic fatigue syndrome and for your writing skills. I am waiting impatiently for your next book.

  919. A Prayer Answered,

    When I read “Unbroken” years ago and found out Louis Zamperini was still alive, I thought about sending my book to him to get an autograph. Although I knew WW II veterans were dying at an alarming rate, I never did. Hearing of Louis’ death this week filled me with remorse. I said a prayer for him and asked for a miracle – some way of getting his signature for my book.

    Louis was listening and told Laura to put a picture of the note he wrote to her with his Purple Heart on her Facebook page. You can’t imagine my jubilation seeing this note. I had read about his gift to Laura, and the reasons he did it. This has special significance, so I printed a copy and it now resides on the inside cover of “Unbroken.”

    I didn’t get want I originally wanted, I got something much better. Thank you Louis and Laura for listening.

  920. Dear Ms Hillenbrand, Heartfelt Thanks to you for spending seven years researching and writing one of the best -if not the best and most moving books I have ever read. How lucky you are to have been able to spend time over years with this most wonderful man. How could you not fall in love with Louis Zamperini? What an exceptional human being… And what a loss for the world that Louis is no longer with us … Because of the way you told his story, It brought tears to my eyes when I heard of his death, and I felt as though I had lost a member of my own family. Thank-you again for introducing me to such a great and inspirational man. Louie, I’m happy to know that you have been reunited with the people you loved in your life that had passed on before you.. May you rest in peace

  921. Ms Hillenbrand, Today is Nick Cristiano’s 89th birthday. He was shot down in 1945 and spend time in the same prison camp as Mr Zamperini was in. One of his sons’ Nick Jr. is a pilot for US Air after a career as a pilot in the Air Force. We are all trying to get Nick Sr invited to the opening of “Unbroken”. I think he has earned an invite and he could certainly add his experiences during the war. You can visit his sons’ facebook page. Nick Cristiano. He has a few pics posted of his father from the papers from 1945. I have known the family for close to 50 years. Thank you.

  922. Dr. Enlander in NY has done wonders for Chronic Fatigue with the use of GCMAF and other treatments. It is definitely worth a call as he is the doctor to the royal family when they visit NY and has helped thousands of patients with chronic fatigue. He has his own clinical research center for chronic fatigue and has ongoing research grants for chronic fatigue. He also provides the medicines at a fraction of the cost which is truly kind. He has been dedicated to chronic fatigue for many years and has helped so many patients with this illness with new medicines that have been recently developed by himself and others.

  923. Hello Mrs. Hillenbrand, today I was saddened learning of the loss of Louie. I am retired as a pilot for UAL after 36 years. I retired Oct. 99′. When I was about 10 years of age, I heard Louie tell his story at a church in Santa Cruz, CA. I was spellbound! Many years later I was in my early career with United. I owned a small plane I kept at the Torrance airport. I was seated at the counter of a small cafe at the airport having coffee. A gentleman seated next to me started a conversation. He introduced himself; it was Louie. We chatted for over two hours. It was a thrill. I told him of having heard his testimony as a youth. I was fortunate during my aviation career to receive several awards for my work ia aviation safety, all fond memories. But one of the highlights of my career was meeting Louie,( he told me to call him Louie ). God bless you for writing his story. I could not put it down. As short as our personal encounter was, I feel a personal loss. Thank you, Capt. Paul Myers

  924. I would love to read your book “Unbroken”. Saw a little about it on Fox News today.

  925. Ms. Hillenbrand,

    My wife and I read “Unbroken” quite some time ago and were extremely moved by it, both by the man and your recounting of his life.

    I cannot tell from published reports whether this is true or not but……………………… it MAY well be that Mr. Zamperini died on the 4th of July! In Japan. If not, he came within a few hours of having done so.

    Should you find out that this is true I’d greatly appreciate knowing.

    Sincere kind regards,

    Lew and Suzanne Pringle

  926. I Am truly Heart Broken To Hear About Louis Zamperini’s Passing Today!..Just An Incredible Courageous Man!..Thank You Laura For Writing About This True Hero..It’s So Inspirational ..There Isn’t Enough Words To Describe What A Great Man He Was!…R.I.P…Louis!..A Truly Sad Day For America & My Prayers & Thoughts Are With You As Well Laura…God Bless!

  927. Song here my mistake: Rest in peace Louie.

  928. Louie. Where do I even begin… I don’t know you, nor have I even met you. But your book has touched my life and changed the ways I look at the world. From the smallest things, to the biggest things, from the most peaceful, to the most drastic. Your book has changed the way I view the world and gives me a reason to push forward. When I run, I think, “Do it for Louie, don’t give up!” and I run knowing that your book gives me strength to do more than I could ever imagine. Thank you for all you have done Louie, your book has influenced my life and made me realize that these 15 years are just the beginning of what I can do. Thank you for your service, sacrifice and your Unbroken spirit to push us all forward. May you rest in peace in the name of the heavenly father. I wrote a song after I read your book, named “Unbroken” of course, with the raging fast and loud parts when you are battling the bird and survival on the raft, to the quiet peaceful parts showing your willingness to go on in the doldrums. For anyone who would like to understand what this book means to me you can listen to the song here. Louie, I thank you for all you have done for me. You will always be my greatest inspiration, even though you’re not here, you will always be in my heart and soul. Rest in peace. Touched and changed, Brendan Shahrokh, 15

  929. From a super fan
    Well we all lost Louie today. Felt like i knew him though thanks to your exceptional book.
    Please don’t let Hollywood soften the message of the hell he went through.
    I read everything you write.

  930. Heartbreakingly sad day for America … Louis’ story was one of the most amazing I have ever read. When I think about courage, endurance, survival, and hope, I not only think of Unbroken and Seabiscuit, I think of you, Laura.
    With the 4th of July tomorrow, we all need to think about what men like Louis have secured for us through his efforts and valor: freedom. Has there ever been a sweeter word?
    Thank you Laura, for bringing this bigger than life human to life for us all.

  931. You must be heartbroken, but I am going to place another burden on it. You yourself are one of the most inspirational people I’ve ever encountered. Your talent is vital and your prose is so vivid, but what makes you special to me is your courage, your own refusal to give in. It’s no wonder you understood Louis Zamperini so well: you are kindred spirits. I’m a high-school history teacher, and a student wrote me a note at the end of the year. The World War I unit was her favorite, she said–it shocked me, too–because now she understands the value of human life. I don’t think I’ve ever had a student so completely understand one of my lessons, and it was a lesson reaffirmed, for me, in Louie’s story.

  933. I’m a book blogger for my local library ( and therefore the source of many book recommendations for friends. When anybody asks me what to read, I’ll tick off a list of recent things I’ve finished, but I always include Unbroken. You know how Turner Class Movies classifies movies as “The Essentials”? That’s how I feel about your book. It’s essential. The subject’s story is astonishing. Zamperini was among the greatest of the greatest generation. And by the way, Ms. Hillenbrand, you write as if you were in the raft with Louie! Both of you inspire.

  934. The passing of Louis Zamperini today.

    In the 1950s I read stories about WW II. I watched “Victory at Sea” every Sunday afternoon with my Dad and brothers. My Dad was a WW II veteran, serving in the Army Air Corps in Italy, and died in 2007. I think about him with the passing of each of the WW II veteran.

    There was little color film and war was black and white. Laura Hillenbrand brought color and life to Louis’ war experiences. It is hard to imagine an alternate life scenario for Louis had they not taken the “jinxed” B-24 on that rescue mission.

    Louis was the best of the best. Rest in peace Louis. I hope your buddies welcome you with open arms in heaven.

  935. This was the best book I have ever read about a person who lived thru so much.The way the book was written I just didn’t want to put it down.

  936. Thank you, Laura for bringing Louis Zamperini to us. His passing would have gone largely unnoticed, if not for you. Your words concerning his death brought me to tears. Your books are 2 of my favorites, and I’m eagerly anticipating your next. THANK YOU….

  937. The world lost a great man and inspiration yesterday. RIP Louie

  938. A great value accomodation, offering great resteraunts and accomodation throughout the UK

  939. My neighbor gave me the book UNBROKEN to read, at first I was hesitant to read it, but once I started I could not put it down.
    I was just wondering about Louie’s sister Virginia, there is not much about her, like there is with Pete and Sylvia.?

  940. Hello,

    I would like to speak with Ms Hillenbrand about a military story dated back to 1965 at the Guam Naval Base. There was a murder of my cousin Randy. My Uncle Lash Mann was involved in top secret missions behind enemy lines in the pacific theatre with the Japanese. We all believe that this murder had something to do with it. My Uncle was very upset with this government having found out about the secret deal we made with Japs. But the story just don’t end there, it had spanned many, many years. My Uncle also was one of the people who started S.A.C.O Sino American Cooperative Organization, a Naval group that history refuses to write about. There are plenty of my family that can attest to this.

    I would like very much if Ms. Hillenbrand to e-mail me or call @ 540-352-4412. I beleive this story needs to be told, it has haunted our family for decades. Thank you

    Warm Regards,


  941. Laura,
    Thank you so much for the brilliant and highly interesting and masterful book, “Unbroken.” I want to tell you that this book is one of the finest masterpieces I have ever read. I have always enjoyed books on sports and also on WW2 . This covered both topics brilliantly with great interest and unbelievable talent. I will be looking forward to the movie with great anticipation.
    Thanks again for this brilliant piece of superior literature.


  942. May I submit a prayer request to you?

    Thank you.

  943. A dear friend of mine wrote a memoir of her immune dysfunction, in fact that is the title of the book. She would like to send a copy to Laura. I myself have MCS. We understand Laura’s plight. How can I forward her a copy of Judith Lopez’s book?

  944. Dear Laura,

    I LOVED you book and enjoyed reading it.

    I was wondering if you can sign my personal copy. It will be a great addition to my collection.

    Thank you very much

  945. Post Greate. Weiterhin halten report dieser Art Of form material bei webpage. Im exceptionally astonished by Weg Of es

  946. I 72 and have been an avid reader since my early teens; I read 3 to4 books a month while enjoying a very full active life.
    I am a veteran and served in the Pacific in the 1960′s….why I missed this story is beyond me. However, it is by far the best read I honestly believe I have ever had. The detail and insight required a lot of work on the authors part….what a great job she did. Thank Ms. Laura, This is the best read ever.

    Best regards

  947. First let me say that I was transfixed to Unbroken and had to read non stop till I finished it! Thank you for this compelling book that showed the absolutely incredible history of WW II. It was fantastic. I have a renewed respect for the forgotten solders from that horrific war. It’s all thanks to you Laura! Next I would like to say shame on you people who take advantage of this site to sell your wares from everything from “love guru’s to steam showers?! Whut???? Really. Shame on you all! If you have not read this incredible book then sell your CRAP else where and leave this comment site alone! Once again fantastic book Laura and I’m looking forward to the movie!!!! #can hardly wait! thanks again for a wonderful accurate story!

  948. I am a songwriter. My partner Jeana and I wrote this song about your inspirational novel Unbroken. We would be very interested in your thoughts and comments on the song.

  949. My father and Mr Zamperini both competed
    for a spot on the 1936 summer Olympic team. My father in the hop step and jump and Mr Zamperini in the 5000 meter. I believe both knew each other and may be the last two peole alive that competed that day.
    My father will turn 100 soon and has many memories the final trials. I was hoping to show him a film of that day on the 12th of July and if it exists and I get lucky, maybe he will be in that film if it exists. I thought possibly during your research for the book you might have come across such as film. I have tried many avenues but have not been lucky enough to find any video. If you have,and would be so kind, I would appreciate any help you might give me in connecting with those archives. Thanks much.

  950. I just finished Unbroken and it was a fantastic read. I loved how you made this part of history come alive to me. I have always been a student of history especially WWII but your book drove home the atrocities that our soldiers suffered at the hands of the Japanese. I can’t wait for your next book.

  951. I am 17 years old and go to marion harding high school in ohio, my english teacher Marry Hardgrove had us read “Unbroken” as one of our books this year. This book has made a big impact on me as a person. I loved the book, but what really inspired me was your life story. I want to be a doctor and anything that has to do with any type of disease just simple fascinates me,i am in Health tech. at harding where myself and 9 other kids are studying for the medical fild and getting our STNA when we graduate, and when I read “A sudden illenss” and saw that you had a illenss called Chronic Fatigue Syndrome i had to know more. I would love to talk with you about the disease. You are an inspiring and amazing person. I hope to hear back from you.

  952. Beautiful story. Made my 82 year old Air Force veteran father cry. Never seen that before.
    Good stuff.

  953. My email to reporter at LA Times:
    Just accessed your great/brief report re: athlete Zamperini’s well-deserved appointment as Grand Marshall for the 2015 Rose Parade….. but was dismayed that you twice mentioned the related fine book (Unbroken) but never mentioned the author who certainly merits recognition (Laura Hillenbrand also author of best seller, Seabiscuit). Perhaps that info was excerpted from the text on line? She certainly deserves as much attentiion as Angelina Jolie who can thank Hillenbrand for the well-written story.

  954. I just finished your book and I could not put it down.Very well written and good research and subject matter. We need more inspirational books about real heroes. My dad was in the Navy in the Pacific theater. As a gunner, they went from island to island helping the Marines on the shores with the battles. I have high respect for what they all done,at a young age. Thank you again for your fine book.

  955. Hello Ms. Hillenbrand, I just finished reading your book “Unbroken”. You wrote a great book about Capt. L. Zamperini’s life. Capt. Z is one tough character by surviving all those hardships during WWII. My mother survived WWII as a teenager in London and always says her story should be in a book. She turns 90 years old this June. I served in the USAF for 23 years.

  956. You’re fantastic book has just been selected as the only book on the Ashland High School summer reading list. I’m a friend of Ron Koltnow’s and a long time buyer and bookseller.

  957. I find no mention of David Rensin’s book, “Devil at My Heels,” in your book, “Unbroken.” Any reason the two books came out just a few years apart? Both are similar and important but the dynamics might be interesting to the reader of both books. Thanks, ken r

  959. Ms. Hillenbrand,

    I finished reading UNBROKEN this morning, and the book is tremenous!

    My father served in Europe during WW II, making amphibous landings at Sicily, Salerno, Anzio Beach (liberated Rome) and on the French Riviera. Then pushed up through France and finally liberated the Dauchou concentration camp on April 29, 1945.

    I have written a small book about his experiences and other family members and included some about the war in the Pacific.

    I work in DC and am interested in meeting you and discussing the similarities of our stories. Look forward to hearing from you when you have time. My cell phone number is 703-587-1988. God bless you and hope he makes you well.

  960. I am thooughly enjoying the audio book of Unbroken and am wondering if it is possible to get an audio book of “We thought we heard the Angels Sing” or you could make one. It is the epic story of Eddie Rickenbacker and his crew going down in 1943 and how they survived for I think 24 days. A book of it was written by one of the survivors Lt. James Whittacker. I am 85 years old and remember meeting him and it too was a marvelous story. Thank you.

  961. Je publie un petit commentaire dans le but de féliciter son auteur

  962. Laura,
    First off I wish you a better health!
    Around our house we understand fatigue all too well! If I’m correct you live in Phoenix and hopefully Mayo clinic has something for you!!!!!
    I just finished reading “Unbroken” this week while I was there for my 2nd Transplant aka TX(Had a liver TX there also in 2009.)

    Don’t TRULY DO NOT think I could have made it without your book (and Louie) this week!

    It gave me back my will to live!

    Peace and prayers to us all.

    Don Benton

  964. Thank you for sharing this book and the information the B-24. This book gave a great insight into the training, and closeness that the crew shared. In 2007, I was fortunate enough to have the remains of an uncle, who was lost in April of 1944, returned home for burial. Your book explained a number of questions that ran through my mind, especially, the listing of MIAs and the thirteen month time period before declaring them dead. Thanks so much for taking the time to write about Louis Zamperini’s life, his struggles and the recovery. It may help others understand what some of veterans are going through today.
