#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE Spanish Description: El nuevo exito de Laura Hillenbrand narra la historia de Louie Zamperini, un disciplinado campeon de carreras que corrio en los Juegos Olímpicos de Berlin en 1936 y del que se esperaba seria el primero en correr una milla en menos de 4 minutos, pero no solo no rompio el record, tampoco gano la carrera. Con la esperanza de ganar el oro en las siguientes olimpiadas, se puso a entrenar de nuevo pero la Segunda Guerra Mundial acabo con su sueno. Su voluntad de vivir fue cruelmente puesta a prueba cuando se convirtio en parte del Cuerpo Aereo del Ejercito Bombardero en 1941, especialmente al estrellarse en el Pacifico junto con su amigo y piloto Russell Allen Phillips. Despues de 47 días a la deriva en una balsa salvavidas, y rodeados de tiburones, fueron rescatados y capturados por los japoneses. En los, teatros de la crueldad, que fueron los campamentos de prisioneros de guerra japoneses, Louie cayo en el mas cruel de todos: Omori y Naoetsu, bajo el control del capitan Mutsuhiro Watanabe, un sadico, patologico y brutal lider cuya satisfaccion provenia de no matar nunca a su victimas, sino de atormentarlas poco a poco hasta su muerte. Una de las cosas que hizo alguna vez, fue exhibir a uno de sus prisioneros desnudo en un zoologico de Tokio para mostrar, lo sucio que era. Despues de una de las palizas que recibía de el, Louie incluso asegura haberle visto una expresion de extasis sexual, y tanto Louie como sus companeros de prision arriesgaron su vida varias veces para tratar de salvar a otros. Solo su espiritu rebelde e inquebrantable logro que fuera rescatado vivo al final de la guerra, a mediados de agosto de 1945. Pero en realidad, Louie aun no estaba libre. A pesar de que pudo regresar a su hogar en Torrance, California, se caso impulsivamente con la bella Cynthia Applewhite y trato de construir una vida, Louie no podia liberarse se las garras de Watanabe, y era perseguido y atormentado en sus suenos. From Laura Hillenbrand, the best-selling author of Seabiscuit, comes a long-awaited new book that tells the story of Louis Zamperini, a runner whose prodigious talent carried him to the Berlin Olympics in 1936. Zamperini was the favorite for the one-mile race and was expected to break the 4-minute record, but he failed on both counts. He began training with the hopes of winning the gold in the following Olympics but the onset of WWII ended his dream. His will to live was sorely tested when his Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean. Together with his friend and pilot Russell Allen Phil Phillips, he drifted in shark-infested waters on a tiny raft for 47 days only to be rescued and then captured by the Japanese. Louis was held captive at Omoriy Naoetsu, controlled by Mutsuhiro Watanabe, a brutal, pathological and sadist leader whose main satisfaction came from slowly torturing his victims, delaying the agony of death. Zamperini s unbreakable will was the only thing that kept him alive until he was rescued in the summer of 1945. He returned to his home in Torrence, California, impulsively married beautiful Cynthia Applewhite, and tried to build a new life. No longer captive, he was still, however, a prisoner, tormented by nightmares in which he was hunted by Watanabe. He suffered from PTSD, an illness unknown at the time, and drank heavily in an effort to block the memories. With Cynthia s help, Louis, now 91, has finally found his way back home. Hillenbrand brings to life an almost-forgotten story of heroism, cruelty, life, death, joy, and suffering. A #1 best-seller in the US for over eight months, Unbroken is a testament to the resilience of the human mind, body, and spirit, and a story of resistance, survival, and redemption during WWII. It is, without a doubt, the book of 2011. , paperback, Edition: Translation, Label: Aguilar, Aguilar, Product group: Book, Published: 2011-10-30, Studio: Aguilar, Sales rank: 837785
